New center of Canton. Got up to the tower there for bird eye view of the city. As a native Cantonese who left some 20 years ago, I could appreciate much better how much have beet changed in the last 30 years.

While there is plenty to see and do in the bustling metropolis that is Guangzhou, there is one thing that you must do while you're there.....you must go to the top of the fabulous Canton Tower! I think it still has the claim to fame of being the single highest straight lift ride in one movement, anywhere in the world.... More

It's a must if on a short visit in Guangzhou. You can see the whole city from the top. It's rather costly and they have trouble with visa credit cards (the ATM's are just round the corner), but the view is definitely worth it.

Visit the top of the tower is pretty pricy, but totally worth. Was in the night time. View of the city it great. Price to get on the 108 floor is 150¥, but with student card is half price.

IT is a marvel of light at night! Don't miss a boat ride at night to see the tower. Like China doing Vegas. Worth the experience and a trip like no other boat ride.
