Visited the Canton Tower in Early July 2014. The views were amazing, although some parts were hard to see through due to the structure. It was a little over priced too.

First, I should give the credit to people who built the tower. It's beautiful from all the angles. However, I believe that the price you pay for the observation deck is too much and the experience - even though it is one of the highest towers in the world - is not worth it.

Too many people. View is very very limited by the structures of the tower. The observatory deck is also overpriced. Not worth the money and I will definitely not come back again.

This is like the Symbol of Guangzhou. An amazingly engineered building. But the entry fee is very high even the lowest one 150 RMB. There is also a wax museum them.

Definitely worth paying the extra to go right to the top but wouldn't recommend the tower drop as was very short ride. The bubble was not working due to winds.

Even if you have seen it every way you pass it, it still good to see escpecially at night. Try strolling along the Pearl river banks or ride the Pearl River cruise, GZ city looks more amazing!

Visited the canton tower today. Cost ¥150 to go up to the observation deck at 433.5meters. It was amazing!! Highly recommended for people that can handle heights.

Great views, nice LED lighting at night. Excellent restaurant at the basement. Didn't avail of the expensive ride that will take you on the side of the tower. You're better off just enjoying the view of the river from the base of the tower. Tons of open spaces. Very easy access from the subway station.

Great to experience one of the highest towers in the world. Amazing when seeing outside (the river, all the city) through observation elevator to the almost-top of the tower. Great views towards whole city from the tower. And people should take a photo (there is service there) at the high floor of Canton tower <3
