No one knows the circumference of Cidri, and it depends on how high the lookout is, and how much atmospheric haze there is.

But if Cidri is many times larger than Earth, the horizon would be many times farther away when looking from the same height.

It would look weird. Also on land, if you climbed any appreciable height and weren't surrounded by higher heights, and allow annoying amounts of long-range observation and mapping.
