Went on the 8pm cruise which was great as the tower and surrounding building were lit up so got some great photos. The cruise takes around 70 minutes. I chose the top deck which was open air and I think this was the best experience as you got a great view. Tea and fruits were included in the ticket price.There... More

We went out for a wonderful fine dining seafood diner before we decided to see Guangzhou by night. It was our last night so what better way to end it but with a fabulous cruise. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Glad we did it we weren't disappointed.

Pearl River Night Cruise is a wonder full place to spend time in the evening, Never before i have seen lighting used in the way it is on the Pearl. The elegance and the sheer number of riverside features, buildings, bridges, boats, ferries, all illuminated by the brilliant placement of lighting, made for a memorable experience to me. i recommend...

This is by far the easiest way to appreciate the lights of Guangzhou. The tickets were about $50 but you got a drink and some snack and could sit outside in the cool evening atmosphere and just enjoy the leisurely cruise up and back along the river. The cruise length was just about right not so long that you got... More

If you are travelling in Guangzhou for some days,then this kind of cruise trip for day or night must be definitely included in yr tour package&program.Very good experience to move through Pearl River and see some important sights of the city under the lights.Recommended.

You get an awesome view of the Canton Tower as well quick view of the city in the 1 hour cruise. Go for the 6pm Cruise, its worth it.

Been on this 2 times during different seasons. Winter is not the best time. It can get really cold with the windchill. Other times are good. Make sure you get a good night scene camera. The best part will be the Canton Tower shots. You don't have to pay for the expensive boats. There are few cheap operators around with... More

Went to this cruise with a big group. Like with everything else in Guangzhou at night, boats were colourfully and brightly decorated with lights and every boat with a unique theme. Aboard, was a pleasant ride, the water was calm and the views were impressive. Many buildings with their own displays and lit with neon lights, even the bridges. Now... More
