Once we paid to see this, we were told the tower is re-built every 40 years or so. During the last rebuild in the 80's, it was moved away from it's original site....

The yellow crane tower is one of the main attractions of Wuhan. It is a beautiful landmark, built like a pagoda and is worth climbing right to the top for the view of the rivers meeting. There are many levels and each has different things such as a museum etc. definitely go there, you'll get some great photos outside on... More

As being european its a very weird concept that is spread around china that for big parks to enter you need to pay such high price - in order to enter this area you need to pay 80 RMB. There are no english explanations in the temples. The yellow crane tower itself is quite fascinating - on 4 floors with... More

A visit to the Yellow Crane Tower was a good experience, made emore pleasant with a Chinses speaking friend. The weather on the day of our visit was not too good and the views from the top of the large Pagoda were limited. On a clear day it would be great and you would undoubtedly see the Yangtze very easily.... More

This tower is a reconstruction of an older classical Chinese tower that burned down in the late nineteenth century. You can climb it and get views of the immediate area from each floor, including a view of Bridge One over the Yangtze River and of the Millenial Bell, too. Go on a clear day if possible, since the views are... More

Although rebuilt in concrete rather recently, the yellow crane tower has been featured in Chinese litterature for millenia and the park is well worth a stroll.

Spent the morning in this park visiting the Yellow Crane Tower. It ias a bit of a walk uphill to the tower but there is the option to take a ride in an electric buggy. Really enjoyed it and also enjoyed hearing the history of the Yellow Crane Tower. Clearly a popular place for both domestic and international visitors alike.

It cost RM80 to enter. There was so many people that it wasn't a relaxing stroll. Climbing up the tower stairs was like being herded into a sheep pen.

I finally visit the famous number on tower in the world (certainly the word was stated in ancient China). The high view at top of the tower is fabulous with 360 degree at top of hill overlooking Yangtze river. That's why it was called the number one tower....

I visited the Yellow Crane Tower over the National Day holiday and it was crowded to the point of being claustrophobic. I did not go up in the actual tower because there were so many people in line, but had a decent walk around the park area. If you do go, make sure it's not during a peak travel time.
