Not worth the trip if you're a foreigner. Tower rebuilt in concrete 50 years the previous one was destroyed, in a different style, at a different site. Only positive point: view point on Wuhan's river.

It was a good place to visit, however the tower had scaffolding when I went to visit. There are some lovely scenic views of the Yangtze River bridge and a hidden waterfall area. It is good if you want to kill an hour or 2 however isn't somewhere you could spend a whole day.

Its amazing that this place was rebuild after every dynasty, from scratch. They knocked down the previous building & the new emperor re-built. The view from the top is just amazing, well worth the climb on the worn staircase. If short on time pay the $10yuan & take the golf buggy to the tower, saves a long hilly walk. Was... More

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
