Definatly worth a visit if you stay in wuhan for a longer time. My local colleagues recommended it is not worth going inside, after being 9 months in wuhan we decided to check it out. For 80 RMB entry fee you can see a nice park with a lot of chances for pictures. right now the tower is under renovation... More

Situated in Wuchan District of modern Wuhan, this ancient Tower is well worth a visit with a great view over the Yangstze River and the city. Then linger across adjacent Shouyi Park, and the Wuchang Shouyi Cultural Park, to finish your day at Memorial Hall of Wuchang Uprising in 1911 Revolution - a very interesting museum capturing the history of...

If you come to Wuhan for the first time, many people would suggest you to check out this landmark. The original tower was built more than 2000 years ago. The tower was made famous because of it was mentioned many times by the poems written by the well-known ancient Chinese poets. The current tower was built near the original site... More

If you want to pay too much money to see a bunch of chinese people fit into a building that was not ment to contain so many, climb a bunch of stairs, over pay for the experience, listen to screaming children and be spat on, then this is where you'd like to go. Screaming children and spitting everywhere. The one... More

The views from the balconies of the Yellow Crane Tower overlooking the city, the Yangtze Tiver and bridge number 1 made this a highlight of our day touring Wuhan's best attractions. If you only visit 1 Wuhan tourist location, make it this one. The only downside for us was the entire outside was covered in scaffolding due to reconstruction and... More

Went to get the iconic picture of the tower but unfortunately at least half the tower is covered in scaffolding. The gardens surrounding the tower are nice to have a walk around, but make sure you go on a nice day other wise all your pictures will end up being grey!

We visited the Yellow Crane Tower in September, during a relatively quiet time, so we didn't have to wade through large crowds or wait in line to view all the interesting sights on the grounds. The gardens are beautiful, with many native plants in bloom. It looks as though the plantings will vary year-round. When we were there, the lantern... More

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
