The most obvious differences between this one and the Singapore flyer and London eye are the very dirty cabins and that it overlooks the relatively dull and often smoggy Nanchang rather than a world-famous city. That said, I wanted to see it enough that I made a detour to Nanchang just to take my kids on it, and am glad... More

The start of Nanchang is one of the largest wheel of fortunes in the world and it is beautiful to see it and to ride in. I visited it during the day and then during the night illuminated and it was even better! It is a most to pass by if you visit Nanchang!

I was really looking forward to riding the world's third tallest Ferris wheel. As a mechanical engineer I find such gigantic machines fascinating. We chose to ride the wheel at night so that we could enjoy the light show. We wish we hadn't ridden the wheel at all! Our car creaked and groaned and shuttered the entire way around. Not... More

We used to live very closeby. At night it's spectacular, many colour lights, shapes and plays. It's also quite big facing the river.

I have been on the star of Nanchang several times and each time is still a thrill. Best time to do it is in the evening when the city lights from across the river and also in HongGuDan are on, its a great way to see the different types of architecture availabe in Nanchang, as Nanchang is still a developing...

forget Singapore flyer or London eye, that's the thrill, I still cannot believe that this one is on of the largest wheels in the world, build with technology that reminds me on my childhood. Yes that the real deal no fancy high tech, computer control or security check. That wheel is turning. Don't go there at noon in Summer if... More

A great way to see the ever-growing, ever-changing skyline of Honggutan and across the Gan River to Nanchang. Choose a clear day, or night and take in the views!

The ride lasted a good 30 minutes. Guess the best time to visit is in the evening. Was everything we expected.

We walked down to the Star Ferris Wheel from the fountains, took us about 45 mins. The wheel is BIG... We paid 50 rmb each and got a carriage to our selfs. Well worth the money. Went at night so got a beautiful lit up view of the city. Didn't notice it being tatty as other people have said due... More

On our last day in Jiangxi, we visited the Star of Nanchang [南昌之星], the world's second tallest ferris wheel after the Singapore Flyer. It was completed in 2006 and held the record for the world's tallest ferris wheel for two years. We each paid RMB50 for the experience. The guide asked us on the way to the hotel what we... More
