The Tianjin Eye or the Ferris Wheel of Tianjin is located near the Yongle Bridge over the Haihe River. It is one of only several wheels in China and the locals brag that it is the only one situated over a bridge. I was built in 2008 and it has been functional for over a decade. It has 64 compartments for passengers and each of them can accommodate up to eight persons.
The best time to hop on the Tianjin Eye is during the night when the weather is nice. The wheel will take you 400 feet above ground and you will enjoy the view of the entire city!
