Tallest building in Guangzhou, if you will be lucky and have a decent weather without pollution you might actually enjoy it. It offers nice change from the otherwise gray city. I recommend to enjoy it just from the Pearl river cruise.

As it title states Canton Tower is very tall and is alongside the River in Guangzhou, at nighttime after dark, it lights up continuously in different changing colours.

The scenery from the top of tower can see the most modern district in Guangzhou. You have to pay to go up the top of the tower. The is a gift shop at the tower and the price is reasonable.

It is a great place to see the city from very top. For lovers of extreme emotions, you can also have a tour on a glass bubble car on the very top of the tower at 600+ meters
