We went here today. As mentioned the costs are rather high and it is not easy to find a parking spot. The place is being renovated, so that makes it much less nice. All together overrated for me.

A great place to visit and soak up some of the culture of Wuhan. Not for the faint hearted as there is quite a lot of walking involved but there is a lift inside the tower for disabled visitors ( although I didn't notice where the disabled access was). A fantastic (albeit hazy) view across towards European Street and the... More

We were taken to the tower by our generous hosts who paid the entry fee, so unable to comment on cost. It was a Sunday afternoon and there were many visitors although there were no queues and entry took little time. The tower is currently being repaired and much of the structure is covered in scaffolding and sheeting, although access... More

All Chinese monuments and parks charged outrageously expansive admission, but at least they show you something. Hebei government should be ashamed for the way they managed this " supposing" the number one attraction in Wuhan. To visit they charged 80 RMB, and make you walk through alleys of artificial meaningless recently built "so called" attractions. The actual tower is covered... More

So much history, stories and legends about this famous Chinese tower, which has a special place in Chinese culture. A real must-see in Wuhan, and bearing with the huge crowd is a test of patience. But, it's definitely worth it to immerse in this building's rich cultural significance.

This is our third trip to Wuhan and each time we have visited the Yellow Crane Tower and surrounding park. It is pleasant and relaxing, this time the tower was shrouded in scaffolding but was pre-warned. Good walks away from the bustle and noise of the city, range of souvenir shops as well.

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
