Was a lovely cruise just the rain dampened spirits. but the views of the towers after sunset was magnificent. To me this is a must after sunset not during daylight. Quite a few operators and they around the rmb60-rmb80 per person

The cruise goes to the Canton tower and back. The skyline is beautiful by night. Fruits and coffee are served on the cruise. When we came back to our table, someone had eaten our fruits lol. Bring your passport to purchase tickets.
