We spent an evening on board a lovely boat cruising up and down the Pearl River taking in the pretty city lights. Refreshments and fruit were also served to us whilst on the water. A nice way to view the city by night.

Guangzhou is always cloudy with polluted air. You don't see its landscape beautifully in day time. But night time is way better with lights and less pollution. So, the night cruise is such a relaxing time away from traffic on the road. The only way to get a slow-life moment in Guangzhou. You will see a lot of landmarks lit... More

The night cruise along the Pearl River is a must when visiting Guangzhou. You really get a feeling of this wonderful Southern Chinese city. The cruise was around 80rmb for the upper level, which is recommended to truly get a feel for the city. I highly recommend this attraction.

We had an 80 minute sunset cruise, with seats on the roof or 3rd floor, for 88rmb per person. This was supposed to include a glass of juice or tea, but after ordering them, we never did get them. The views were fantastic though, and that's what we went for! The place to buy your tickets is at the Dashatou... More

We took one of the many night cruise offerings, I can't even tell you which company it was. We didn't get the food...we actually had Papa John's delivered to the pier (which was awesome!). The boat was just like many other dinner cruise boats and was nothing special, but the cruise offered an absolutely beautiful view of the city. The... More

Third experience never ceases to amaze me. The lighting on the buildings is breathtaking. You can't be in Shanghai without doing this. Such a contrast from what you see from the bund during the day. Public transport to the cruise location is pretty straight forward. No need to do it thru a tour just take the subway.

“Pearl River Night Cruise”Where there is a river, there will be a river cruise offered. The best time to go for a cruise is when the city is all lit up. Within a year we were very fortunate we went to three different river cruises; Shanghai Huangpu River night cruise, Hong Kong harbour watching the laser show and the night... More

We stopped off at Tuanyida Square looking for Tianzi Wharf. Ended up walking to Terminal at Donghu because we got lost. Probably easier just to get on as off at Donghu metro! Well worth the 1hr 15 minute cruise with dinner for 128RMB each with an average buffet meal with soft drinks included. We were on second level and after... More
