forget Singapore flyer or London eye, that's the thrill, I still cannot believe that this one is on of the largest wheels in the world, build with technology that reminds me on my childhood. Yes that the real deal no fancy high tech, computer control or security check. That wheel is turning. Don't go there at noon in Summer if... More

A great way to see the ever-growing, ever-changing skyline of Honggutan and across the Gan River to Nanchang. Choose a clear day, or night and take in the views!

The ride lasted a good 30 minutes. Guess the best time to visit is in the evening. Was everything we expected.

On our last day in Jiangxi, we visited the Star of Nanchang [南昌之星], the world's second tallest ferris wheel after the Singapore Flyer. It was completed in 2006 and held the record for the world's tallest ferris wheel for two years. We each paid RMB50 for the experience. The guide asked us on the way to the hotel what we... More

I've lived in Nanchang for 6 years and have been on this ferris wheel twice. The problem with Nanchang is it's weather. It is so often cloudy (smoggy?) that it doesn't make for a great scenic viewing - you have to get lucky with the weather. This ferris wheel took about 30 minutes to ride so it was long enough....
