Great View

Best view in Guangzhou for sure. But this place is so crowded and the price is a little bit expensive for a Chinese tourism attraction.

Not as spectacular as the price you pay for the view there are other observation towers with much better views elsewhere. The lines though were not that long but the observation deck was very loud, no place to quietly enjoy the view. I had more fun on the bubble tram and the best view which we bought as a combo...

At first I was kind of reluctant to visit the tower, eventhoug it was already part of the tour activities. As I was thinking it would be another tower that we have to visit. But apparently I was wrong. They have a small cubicle like a cable car unit that goes around the tower top. So you can see the... More

It's obviousley the best view in Guangzhou! The tower is popular but we were there on a sunday afternoon and it was not that crowded. The lines were not long. Everything was clean, fresh and calm. Amazing to see this view from this height! Didn't eat there or anything else but look at the view. Top notch!!

We did not have a chance to go to the top with the elevator, which is by the way quite expensive. But the view by night at the bottom is just AWESOME and is definitely worth it Great colors and great pictures We loved it :)

Pearl River Cruise gives spectacular view at night. Irrespective of the boat you take, you would be mesmerised by the highly lit river side buildings and changing colours of the Canton Tower.

Apparently it's one of the most expensive towers in the world to enter. I'd agree. The most basic ticket offering indoor views starts from 128RMB. It only goes up from there. However, there's also a horizontal Ferris wheel and one of those sky drop machines (like in the theme parks) where you ads exposed to the weather and drop down... More

Canton tower is the third tallest building in the world and the tallest in China. It is a great of engineering and a landmark architectural marvel. It's imposing presence in the skyline of Guangzhou marks the modernity and upward gaze of the people in this area of the world. Lovely to look at especially with its multicolor lighting at night.

great view but been very hard to reach the top with 5 different lifts. Found only there is a VIP service where you pay more but reach the top apparently without hassle.
