This is one of the most striking places in Wuhan worth every minute you stay there. I spent two hours and they were not enough to enjoy the Tower itself with splendid views - try to go there when the sun set is approaching - the huge bell which one can make 'ring', the pavilions and beautiful sculptures connected with...

It is worth visited this place if you are in the city. It is located close to freeway. No e city view from the top of the floor, but it isn't a modern city so it isn't pleasant view.

Everyone knows of the Yellow Crane Tower. It is one of the major landmarks in Wuhan and it is pretty rubbish. The current Yellow Crane Tower was built in 1981, one kilometre away from the original site. If you are looking for something historical, look elsewhere. Another case of the Chinese rebuilding their history. Good points: The views are amazing.... More

As part of our tour with Viking, the yellow crane tower was part of the attraction. This was zoo nice to see and understand the history.

even though it's a rebuilt of the actual tower, still gives a lot of insight into history of the place!

Yellow Crane Tower is one of the most popular sightseeing places in Wuhan. The entrance is 80¥ or more, I don't think it's worth that much. You'll see much more at East Lake.

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
