The Beijing Tower, called as“a huge nail”by netizens, is opening its door to the public. The 9th Beijing Park Festival opens at the Olympic Park on the morning of August 18, 2014. The new landmark, the Beijing Tower, built as the south gate to the park and has been bantered as “a huge nail”on the Internet, is opening its door to tourists for the first time. It serves as the observation tower and is the 22th tallest worldwide and the 6th tallest in China, with a height of 246.8 meters. Viewed from above, the tower looks like the giant Olympic rings, lying by the north axis of the city. Tourists can reach the top of the tower by an elevator and overview the Olympic Park as a whole, including the famous bird nest, water cube, etc. [Photo by Qi Lianmin/Qianlong]
