The view of Guangzhou skyscraper are visible from the pearl river and from here you can see the canton tower. All views from pearl river at night time like gems of Guangzhou which is shining at night time.

Easy boarding around 7.15pm close to the many river side restaurants, the cruise is about an hour and cruises up the Pearl River amongst them amazingly lit high rise buildings of modern Guangzhou, including tn spectacular Canton Tower.

The pearl rever is a must see while visiting Guangzhou. A beatiful light view of the city. We had a good relaxing break after busy shopping day.

On a clear summer night, it was packed with people going on the Pearl River cruise. About an hour duration, you could see the beautiful lights on both sides of the Pearl River. Famous attraction was the Canton (Guangzhou) Tower where colourful lights continued to change. Getting to the pier was quite easy. Took the metro ( line no. 2... More

Pretty awesome view of the Guangzhou skyline. You pass by the Guangzhou tower (or also known as the canton tower). I was a little overcrowded though and people were just coming up to the third floor and crowding it to get the best picture. Can't say anything about the price since it was free for us. In general if you... More

Beautiful night view of the buildings and especially the tower and very affordable. Go for the after 7pm non dinner cruise and opt for the upper deck. Walk along the river bank after the cruise. Cruise terminal close to Metro line 2 and 6, so very convenient. Don't buy tickets from touts.

Lifely buffet, all in Chiners. Even the safety instruction. Food quality ok. Beer possible to buy at the bar at a reasonable price. Nice variation in food, but be quick Chinese are fast.... Scenery beautiful worth the trip.
