Providing a memorable backdrop for a few snapshots of the city, The Tower of the Sun sits within a park created for the Expo '70, the first World's Fair ever held in Asia. The statue is around 65 m (213 ft) tall, with both of its arms 25 m (82 ft) long. The sun wears three faces in this sculpture--a golden mask on top, a black one on the back, and a red on the front. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Suita holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the The Tower of the Sun and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
