We enjoyed a visit to this tower. Great views of the city. There is art work on the walls. Pretty busy at times.

If China has done one amazing thing it is to preserve some of this old architecture from centuries ago. This was really amazing to see from the outside but the view upstairs there was not much to rave about.

We visited the Yellow Crane tower and were very pleasantly surprised with this tourist attraction in the middle of the "construction site capital" of China. The views from the top would have been even better, if the air had been clearer. And I took photos from the different levels, as some of the best views of the complex are from... More

Many steps to the tower, and then to the top of tower, but so worth it. A must see if you find yourself in Wuhan. Fairly expensive for China, but much to see upclose and then inside tower. Great views of city.

It's the most famous monument in Wuhan but we personally don't find it special. Especially that it's not the original tower but just a replica of the original that were destroyed earlier and moved from the original location. We have nice photos outside of the tower but that's it.

Wuhan is the provincial capital of Hubei .It is an important inland port , economic hub , cultural and historical city..During a stopover ,we visited this prominent landmark. The Yellow Crane Tower is a contemporary five floors pagoda .It's majestic with the shape of bird wings in "take off" motions. At the reception is a huge painting of a flying... More

When I went I didn't find the tower to be particulary crowded. May be that was due to visiting it on a rainy day. So don't let the rain put you off!

I was in two minds about visiting the Tower because one of the locals told me it was expensive (80 RMB) and not particularly impressive, while my colleague from the U.S. claimed that she enjoyed her visit a lot. My verdict: if you are in Wuhan, it's a good idea to have a close look at the tower. The entrance... More

Nothing amazing. Must climb steps . Not ideal for those who are less mobile. Very crowded as it packed with international and domestic tourists. Beware of pickpocket. Walk at your own risk. Bargain if needed when buying gifts

Not a great value, but one of the few things of interest for tourists in Wuhan (within the city). Be warned of the usual Chinese "manners" particularly among large crowds like these. Of course, with the prevailing "weather" in China being obscuring grey pollution, the views are not so good even from the top of the tower over the Yangtze.
