As many visitors already have mentioned, this is the must visit place in Wuhan. Locating on top of the 'snake hill' looking down the 'long river', tower and surrounding areas provide very good view of Wuhan city and the river. Although with some typos, there were many signs, written in Chinese, English and Korean, introducing all buildings, stones, writings, statues... More

I have been here during my stay in Wuhan. It's a very beautiful place, the view is beautiful from above the tower but, in my opinion,the garden/park all around it is the very at attraction! Everything is very clean, is a very attractive place! But: 1) The tower is very far from the original! It has an elevator and it's... More

The yellow crane tower complex is a must, when visiting Wuhan, unfortunately that it means it is often very crowded. The complex gives an idea of how the temples looked like, but almost everything is a replica of the old buildings. Nevertheless it made for an interesting visit and it is very central. From the top of the pagoda, the... More

We spent a whole afternoon at this attraction which was built by the military during feudal times.Successive dynasties added to the pagoda. There are lots of stairs to the top of the tower for the good views. However there is a lift if you can't manage the stairs. Refreshments available and somewhere to buy postcards and post letters.

Must see for a historical and cultural learning experience. It is best to visit with someone who can explain the sgnifucance of the location, the history of the towers, and the cultural impact of the poem. And hey, you can ring the big bell for 10 yuan and good luck!

The only thing I regret is not putting enough time aside to visit the main grounds around the tower. The tower is an elaborate and imposing structure. Visitors can take the stairs to all 5 floors (the lifts can only be used by those over 70 years old, or those who genuinely can't take the stairs). Having said that the... More

I have visited the Yellow Crane Tower twice as it is a great place to view the Yangtze Russian Bridge and views of the city and the architecture of the tower and surrounding buildings are very beautiful.

Y40 to enter the park and another Y40 to climb the tower. There is a cheaper way to have a bird's eye view of Wuhan. It is about a 20 minutes walk from Hubu Xiang and there is a direct bus (501) from Jianghan Pedestrian Street.
