This beautiful complex of pavilions, traditional gates, great bell, gizibos and the amazing Yellow Crane Pagoda, date back 1,800 years! The electric busses and pagoda elevator made this visit delightful!

I climbed it when I was on a business trip to Wuhan. Although my local colleague did not suggest me to climb, I still go. I think it is really worth visiting as a landmark of Wuhan. At least, overviewing Yangtze River and Wuhan Yangtze...More

You should go to the yellow crane tower if you are in Wuhan, but it is not that spectacular. A yellow crane tower has existed on the same site for millenia but the current one dates only back to 1985 when a fire destroyed the...More
