This is a great spot to visit; definitely the no.1 thing to do in Wuhan. It's a little distant from the metro stops, but it can still be walked easily from Pangxielja on Line 2. Once in the compound, there's a lot to see other than the tower itself and it will take you a couple of hours to wander... More

This Yellow Crane Tower is not the original and historical one but a replica of another tower which was at a different location. Inside this tower, there are different exhibits on different floors. I like the models showing how the Yellow Crane Tower was rebuilt in different dynasties. There are poems written by different poets in the Chinese history when... More

The icon of Wuhan with a rich history and beautiful peoms that I am happy to bring my friends to as they visited Wuhan. My suggestion is to start the tour from the parking lot back of the hill, passing through the gardens and pavilions and then come up to see this grand tower up in the front. Climbing to... More

Very interesting tower with great views. The only problem we faced was that the city is just shrouded with thick smog so the visibility is limited.

Talk about serendipity! To prep my five year old child for our China trip we watched Kung Fu Panda and Kung Fu Panda 2. Then when we were looking at photos of Wuhan online before the trip, he pointed at Yellow Crane Tower and said, "Look daddy, it's the peacock's tower!" Apparently the illustrators of Kung Fu Panda 2 took... More

Nice to be able to climb the tower and see the different exhibitions on different floors. English or any other translation not available. Good view of the Yangtze bridges and the rest of snake hill. The walk along snake hill is also very relaxing.
