TV Tower Viewpoint

Would you like to see Qingdao from the top? I went to the TV tower and even though it was during a cloudy day I was able to enjoy the view. The tower viewpoint room was interesting. There were some artifacts and decorations designed to be optical illusions or mental puzzles. There was, for example, a small booth with mirrors where people get in and their body disappear leaving their head “floating”. Look at the following pictures and click to enlarge.

This is the tower viewed from another viewpoint in Qingdao.

The entrance to the tower

Right in front of the entrance there is a brick wall with hands engraved in them. Tourists take pictures of themselves here.

And of course, everyone wants to compare their hands with the ones in the bricks.

There are three viewpoints and a revolving restaurant in the tower. But the top viewpoint was the one that most caught my attention. All seemed to be a game of optical illusions and unique objects.

This was a string-less harp. People just needed to pass the fingers and a sensor would detect them and play the note. If you know how to play the harp, you may enjoy the experience.

In the same floor there is this glass bridge. At the bottom, if there were enough light, you can see the bottom of the tower  250 meters (820 feet) down.

And lastly here is a wall with some of the World Federation Members of Great Towers. It was a wonderful surprise to see the Torre Latinoamericana from Mexico City here in a far wall in China.
