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.

After a whole day shopping at those wholesalers market in Guangzhou city, Pearl River cruise is an ideal activity to embark to. You can have buffet dinner on the cruise or just enjoy the scenery. The cruise will take about 1 hour to 1hr 45min, depends on which cruise boat you take. I prefer to board the cruise boat at... More

This a must attraction to experience while in Guangzhou. As you approach the water's edge you are taken aback by the colorful array of Boats, glistening in the dark. The river cruise is very enjoyable. The food is excellent. The City back drop is outstanding.

Nothing very exciting except seeing Guangzhou city lights. Probably because we chose a pretty ordinary ride, without dinner.

We opted for the cruise that departed at 7pm hoping to catch the sunset view. But it was quite disappointing. My recommendation is to go for 8pm departure at least all the buildings along the water front would be fully lighted. The cruise would be the best option to see the Canton Tower.

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

The Pearl River Night Cruise was one of my favorite things to do. My husband and I did a sunset cruise which lasted about 60 minutes and there are dozens of options ... check with your hotel concierge for the best option and if you can reserve the outdoor deck on the top, pay a little extra to do that...

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.
