Eiffel Tower

In Nov 2009, I had seen the Eiffel Tower at Shenzen.

Recently I had seen the real one in Paris!


a ticket to go up my dream tower


Awesome view of the tower while I was cruising the Seine River


high up in the air


You can imagine how big is the tower in comparison to the bus.


Welcome to tour eiffel!



 We had to queue up to get into the lift to take us to the second level of the tower.


The tower stands 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building. Upon its completion, it surpassed the Washington Monument to assume the title of tallest man-made structure in the world, a title it held for 41 years, until the Chrysler Building in New York City was built in 1930; however, due to the addition in 1957 of the antenna, the tower is now taller than the Chrysler Building. Not including broadcast antennas, it is the second tallest structure in France after the 2004 Millau Viaduct.

  11. You must have spent a long time admiring the tower. Seeing the tower on pictures and postcards is already breathtaking. How much more in real life? I wonder how Gustave Eiffel saw such a marvelous construction among heaps of metal.
