Our tour guide recommended we take a cab ride to go see Guangzho Tower at night, and we are so glad we did. It is so beautiful, sitting so tall and stately near the river, lit up constantly in a moving rainbow of colors. You don't need to pay the freight to go inside and go to the top --... More

This was included in our private tour package and seriously, if you've been to one "highest building" in Beijing or Shanghai or Seattle or New York City, you've been to all of them.

Make sure you get on a ferry to see the canton tower at sunset, it is gorgeous. Make sure you get in a ferry that gives English translation.

An amazing structure indeed, being the 5th tallest freestanding structure in the world and the second tallest structure in china makes it a fantastic attraction to visit. Make sure to be there at night, you will be amazed by the great colors and lighting of the tower and the surrounding buildings of the financial district.
