Eiffel Tower: It's the only one that's beautiful all by itself, IMHO!! It also looks great night and day.

CN Tower is best looking, though I think it should be cleaned, badly. I've seen old pics where it was as white as Stratosphere.

Eiffel Tower :guns2: the CN, Oriental Pearl and Space Needle are all close runners.

The Stratosphere is mediocre at best. It doesn't have a "different look" compared to others.

CN no doubt, not putting down the Eiffel or Oriental Pearl though. CN is one of the seven modern wonders of the world.

Eiffel Tower - a classic that is still astonishing! It was planned to get a cover and then later that it should be distroyed after the fair - fortunatly they didn't do that.

It's still maybe the most famous building in the world apart from the Gizeh Pyramids and the Great Wall of China... also in 200 years! No competition possible

eiffel tower for me, even though it looks crappy in the day (oil rig), at night its beautiful and the views of paris are incredible so as for an 'observation' its the best in that aspect too.
not that it matter tied second between CN and Oriental Pearl.

My vote goes to the CN Tower... it's the only one here that's an official 'world wonder'.

Good to see the sentimental favourite doing so well, though I think of the Eiffel Tower as something in a class of it's own.
