Good itinery is: coming with the commuter-ferry from either (close to) ´Shamian Island´ or ´Beijing Road´ (where it gets to the river) when it gets dark, so You have a nice view. And afterwards crossing the river by AMB-Metro to the new town with Opera and Library and another nice view of Canton Tower

Went there with 2 of my children - unfortunately it was a foggy/smoggy day, but only option we had. You will get a good impression on the size of this city and a great view of all nearby skyscrapers. Somehow overprices for those 30 min. at most you will spend up there.

Extremely easy to get to...Metro Line 3, Canton Tower stop. A beautifully, unique designed tower. There is a big wall in the lobby with prices, pictures and description of attraction packages. We paid $228Yuan for 107th & 111th floor outdoor observation decks...children $134Yuan. Expensive but well worth the views. 107th flr: enclosed inside observation with a glass skywalk.

The view from the tower was amazing and it was really pretty when lit up at night. Wish I had paid to go on the bubble ride which circumnavigates the tower outside near the top.

I went in the evening. I believe it is more of a view at night. It's expensive (220 yuans all the way to the top). If you want to ride the "bubble", another 98 yuans. Whenever possible, use the subway. The scam of taxi drivers (they try to say that your 100 bill has some type of problem and try... More

I come here twice a year and always schedule a visit to the tower. I've dined at two of the restaurants (105F and 106F) and they are both good although a little pricey.
