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

It is THE historical spot to visit in Wuhan. Nicely refurbished, both the tower & the surrounding park.

Be prepared for a lot of walking and climbing to actually get to the top. From where our driver parked the car to the top of the tower was probably 300 steps, that was only a little more bearable because the weather was not oppressively hot and humid. The views from the tower are certainly impressive but spoilt at this... More

The history of the Yellow Crane Tower is fascinating and the large painting(?) depicting the myth is beautiful. It was cool to know that all these famous poets came there and it showed nice views of Wuhan. The pond area and bamboo before reaching it were nice as well. Would definitely recommend!

Number one place to be seen in wuhan. The scene is nice. The tower is great. But it is not original one. It has been renewed several times (lastly about 1990) not very special if you think that way. But seeing the model of original one which was built thousands years ago makes you feel different. It has several rarely... More

The Tower is often sheathed in scaffolding as ongoing repair work is underway, which mars your photo-op. There is outstanding artwork, lanterns, tiled murals, wood carvings, examples of period furniture, and beautiful watercolors. The view from the top is worth the climb on a sunny day. There are several gift shops that provide higher quality souvenir items than those found... More

Yellow Crance Tower is the landmark in Wuhan that most of travelers will visit. The entrance fee was CNY80 that was a bit expensive as compared to the living standard, e.g., CNY1 to 2 for public buses, in Wuhan.
