Guangzhou Pearl River Night Cruise Ticket (Redemption Required)

9 reviews
Prebook this evening boat cruise ahead of time, and get a a front-row peek at Guangzhou’s glittering skyline by night. With convenient ticket redemption right at the dock of Dashatou Wharf, it’s easy to have a stress-free night out. Glide along the Pearl River, and admire the city’s top landmarks along the way, from the Canton Theater to the low-lying Ersha Island. Cruises depart every twenty minutes.

Walking around Shamian Island is a must visit. . A beautifully landscaped area dotted with cafes, restaurants and lovely sculptures to pique your interest in a bygone era. The buskers entertaining down by the riverside for a pleasant Saturday. Watching the world go by as you drink coffee and simply relax.

Magical! The architecture is beautiful and the trees are beautiful. Sit next to the Pear river and listen to live music whilst sipping a cold beer.

Went to Shamian Island as part of Cycle Canton’s itinerary and absolutely loved it! I thoroughly enjoyed, although saddened at parts, finding out about the history of China, Great Britain, and France during the 19th and early 20th century. It’s a beautiful place to find families enjoying time together and couples getting their wedding photos together! Our group also enjoyed having coffee at one of the Starbucks that I’ve been to with unique character.

Shaman Island has an interesting history and is like a small slice of Europe in China. The Island is nice to walk around and has many decent cafes and places to take pictures.
