The building that looks like a needle is a Television Tower in Downtown Beijing with a revolving restaurant.

Here are a few pictures looking out over Beijing from the restaurant of the Television Tower I took with my phone.

As the day turned into evening, this is the view of the city from the observatory deck.

After climbing many steps, this temple and look out building had a breathtaking view of The Forbidden City and of Beijing.

I loved seeing the decorative wood work found on the ceiling and on the eaves.

 The craftsmanship was incredible -eye candy really!

The tall needle looking building is a television tower with a rotating restaurant similar to the Seattle Space Needle. The views of Beijing are breath taking from the restaurant. I was fortunate to have dinner there and to watch the sun set over the mountains.  I will post more pictures from there later.

Beijing has a bicycle ride share program where for a small fee a bike can be used and left in any part of the city.  This picture was taken from the National Museum of China in view of Tia Nan Men Square to the right, and the television tower in the distance to the right.

I’m loving every minute of this trip!

Hope you are having a great day!
