Going around abt 1 hour to see all the night beauty in Guangzhou. They have buffet dinner and some attraction on board on the way back, like acrobatic dance, traditional chinese dance, etc.

There are many ports where you can board for the Cruise, the one i bought supposed to board from Haixinsha port but due to some maintainence the staff called and changed my booking to board from Tianzi port. It was a 60mins cruise passing through the attractions. Coffee, nuts and fruits were served (top floor - open air deck). Seats... More

The view was anything you could see from the sides of the river and the atmosphere was also not special in any way. Don't recommend for that price.

As shared by other reviewers before, that the most expensive ticket does not mean that you'll be sitting at the best position, I made sure I understood all the options available when purchasing the ticket. Since capturing the colourful night views was the most important to me, I chose the package without dinner but with seat at the open air... More

Was included in Package else would have given it a miss. The Pearl river cruise was told as a must-do. But its more of the night lights near the central business district, so it can be given a skip and instead a walk along the river boulevard near the Guangzhou museum should suffice. The fruits and the coffee served could... More

It was a nice night time cruise on the top deck of the cruise boat for a couple of hours. The lights of city are brilliant along the river as each bridge is brightly lit in an usual manner as are many of the buildings along the river. The most spectacular view is of the Canton Tower which just dominates... More

The Pearl River night cruise is a great way to see the lights of the city. Cruising the river was really enjoyable however I would recommend skipping the buffet.

Taking a dinner cruise on the pearl River is a great way to spend an evening. All the boats are well lit up in brightly coloured lights. Dinner is served usually as a buffet as you slowly cruise down the Pearl River with both banks and many buildings and bridges all well lit up. In fact many have lights that... More
