Yellow Crane Tower is really a historical place and inside you can learn about its history and architectural rebuildings during reign of Chinese dynasties: Song, Tang, Yuan, Ming and Qing. In fact - a god place place to see the great Yangze river bridge, but you must be lucky with weather - during haze the bridge is almost invisible. 1-1,5... More

Fantastic views across the Yangtze river and a great place to view the city. Each level of the tower has a display to look at but its the tower itself and the view that's best. Snake Hill opposite has a large bell (Millennium Bell) that can be rung by tourists and is also a great vantage point for a photo.... More

The tower itself was under construction when I was there, so I could only go up to the third level, but it still offered an incredible view of the city. There is a heavy haze around the city, so you might not see far, but this is still a great place to visit. And it's a good place to walk... More

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.
