Amazing Canton Tower!

I was amazed! The structure, the lights- one must really see the Canton Tower when in Guangzhou. Even from afar, it was really a stand-out!

I am still in awe. Stunning views of Guangzhou from the Canton tower. The premium ticket gives one access to several activities including transparent passenger cars on a rotating wheel at the roof top. A must see and do. A restaurant is available at the tower, missed the opportunity because it was fully booked.

Stunning structure which dominated he skyline in Guangzhou. It is comparatively expensive to visit. However a Tower Glamour Pass at 488 Chinese Yuan provides you with entry to the Observation Deck and Technology Marvel Tour Hall, 450 Lookout at 112th floor, Bubble Tram around the the ream, sky drop and 488 Meter Lookout. It is the third tallest building in... More
