There is no way to love this landmark. A pure sample of power and that the economy of the city is blooming. I cant stop taking pictures, specially at night,

This is worth your time, 60 minutes is enough! The elevator ride was the height (no pun intended) of the experience. Canton Tower offers great views!

Nice to watch at night as the whole tower colourfully lit up which can be seen from a distance. Accessible via metro line 3.

Best view of Guangzhou. Getting there is also easy- metro station is very near to the building. Plan for one hour tour and try to reach there little before evening so that you have both the sunlight view and night view. Go for the skyfall if you like adventurous rides.

make sure you go on a clear day or you wont be able to see very far due to the smog. I liked the Canton Tower as there are restaurants, enclosed cars that you can sit in and they go around the outside of the tower, there is a drop down ride that I was too scared to go on... More

If you want to see the wonderful night view of canton tower, the river and the bridge as well, you can go to four seasons hotel at IFC building. For a luxury bar take the elevator to floor 99. For a coffee break take the elevator to floor 77.

It was a golden opportunity to drink some Longjing tea after being enjoyed breathtaking views on the very top of the world! Don't miss it, the tea lounge at the bottom of the tower is fantastic!

This is the best view of Guangzhou from anywhere in the city day or night if weather conditions are right. You will be able to pick out landmarks in relationship to the other parts of the city. I recommend it for every visitor to the city.
