I´ve never climbed up the tower, but i had a chance to go up to its first floor, where there is a great view of the Pearl River and the skyline of GZ. It is definitely the symbol of GZ!

A massive tower. Be prepared to pay $'s to get to the top. You can have a bubble car ride around the edge at the top or a big drop ride. Packages available for you needs. Views magnificent. A must to see and do which in Guangzhou.
