The Yellow Crane Tower is a famour attraction in Wuhan. You will have to climb several levels to see the remarkable views of Wuhan from each floor. It is a beautiful tower and one that should not be missed on a visit to Wuhan. I would caution older visitors or those that cannot climb up stairs.

It is quite a trek to the top of this tower, but there are things to see at each level, so I took a break and looked around at each floor on the way up. Coming down was much easier, of course. The views were breathtaking, but one thing about the tower (and most places in China), is you are... More

It was easy to climb up the whole mountain and stairs up to the top. The view of Changjiang River and the whole city Wuhan was amazing! And the wind up there was really cool.

From the top of the tower there is a great view of Wuhan but to get there you have to climb way too many steps, especially if you are an older person.

It is a really nice place to visit giving a commanding view of the city below. The tower itself is well maintained and of course one of those few place in Wuhan which have the original Chinese architecture to them. Not to mention that the paintings and sculptures are great at this place. The attraction but has an enterance fee... More

Be prepared for a lot of walking and climbing to actually get to the top. From where our driver parked the car to the top of the tower was probably 300 steps, that was only a little more bearable because the weather was not oppressively hot and humid. The views from the tower are certainly impressive but spoilt at this... More

The history of the Yellow Crane Tower is fascinating and the large painting(?) depicting the myth is beautiful. It was cool to know that all these famous poets came there and it showed nice views of Wuhan. The pond area and bamboo before reaching it were nice as well. Would definitely recommend!

Number one place to be seen in wuhan. The scene is nice. The tower is great. But it is not original one. It has been renewed several times (lastly about 1990) not very special if you think that way. But seeing the model of original one which was built thousands years ago makes you feel different. It has several rarely... More
