A cruise is a quick way in enjoying the sights of Guangzhou with limited time on hand. It took 90 minutes altogether. The night cruise was picturesque with lots of sparkling lights - the majestic Canton Tower, Jiefang Bridge, Liede Bridge, to name a few structures.

It tends to get foggy here, so go after rain, to see far far away! I also suggest to go earlier than sunset because the queues get crazy, plus, try to avoid a weekend, as everyone around mainland will flock to this tower during the weekend, to go up, take pictures at the bottom, and it is just a big...

Fabulous structure and everything well organised. Unfortunately the only day we could go its was raining and overcast so view was not so good and the bubble car ride was closed due to the weather. However if you are in Guangzhou its a must do.

Don't miss it during night time! Cool interior in the observation deck as they turned off all the main lights and use multi-coloured LEDs instead. Also, this is my first tower to offer multiple facilities like the bubble tramp, sky drop, sky walk and also 4D cinemas.

It was the highest tower I've ever been to. A bit scared to look out when the lift going up. You can see an unobstructed view of Guangzhou City. It has the beautiful scenery of both the Guangzhou New City and the Pearl River. At the base of the tower display Guangzhou general information, including history, culture, economy and tourist...

It was just after the Mid Autumn festival that I visited the Canton tower and adding to the colour of the Tower itself were the other towers across the river and, if you bothered to look, the full moon sailing across the sky. If you are flying into Guangzhou after sunset ,don't forget to peep out and look for the... More

I went up the tower because it is my only opportunity to go up one of the world's tall towers. I did not feel the height until I came down in the elevator with the views out. Then I got a thrill. If I had had my photo taken on the observation floor or gone up the stairs to who... More

The tower is a real looker from a distance, and is magnificent up close. The line to get in is massive. The entrance ticket is also quite expensive so my friends and I decided against going up. Its a good photo taking opportunity, and maybe even meet a few cute girls who are exploring the city.

Canton tower is world's 2nd tallest tower. It is very nice view from the top . When we went sky drive is close but I think it's amazing. Tickets also not too much high.
