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

Had a guide to take us around this amazing place. Full of history and well set out for western travellers. Spent a full afternoon here.

This is a central place to visit in Wuhan. Lot of history behind that, nice park area for walking, great city view.

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.

Visited the tower for the first time many years ago, 2001 in fact. It still holds its place as a spectacularly located tourist attraction situated on the edge of the Yangtze River beside the original bridge - an engineering accomplishment in itself! Climb the tower for a spectacular view of both the bridge and the river.

For history, culture and view. Don't skip the stone exhibition hall on your way to the tower. Even on a rainy Saturday the place was packed. Go early, if you can, or on a weekday.

Reasonable to find, we got off at Shouyi Road subway station on line 4, and basically walked north up Shouyi Road until you get to a busy road and the park is across the road. The price is a bit steep at 80 RMB but its quite impressive inside. You get the opportunity to take some amazing shots of the... More

A great place to visit once you are in Wuhan. It offers a great and peaceful walk and beautiful view from the top.

Another tourist trap? By all means, but I found it interesting. The panoramic view of Wuhan is the reward for climbing the stairs (elevator for over 70 and disabled only). Expensive for China at 80 RMB + 10 RMB if you want to use the shuttle. Reserve a few hours to visit the entire park.

Spend at least 2-3 hours to get the most of this place. Try hitting the large bell for a fee, get some coins to throw in, walk up slowly and around all floors to see the views and I bought a yellow crane bronze statue for RMB$390 - very pretty. i like it. This time there is a tram that... More
