Beautiful tower, impressive construction
Jun 2018 • Couples
The the tower is new, but represents the the traditional wooden drum towers in an excellent way as it is the biggest in the area and the craftmanship is amazing. Tip: visit the square in front of the tower at night and enjoy the local people walking, children playing and woman and some men dancing. No mass tourism 100% Chinese culture.

Interesting architecture, nice village, worth a short visit..

We took the fast train from Guilin to Sanjiang to see the Drum Tower. The train ride was pleasant and comfortable and the tower was picturesque and interesting to see, and so were the small surrounding villages. Actually there are several similar towers but, once you saw the tallest and the biggest, seeing the others a kind of looses importance, the more that the mid-day heat is really strong... All together, it makes for in interesting and recommended half a day trip from Guilin.

Very Nice Modern Drum Tower
Apr 2016 • Family
Built in the traditional Dong style this Drum tower was built in 2010. It is amazing to see such a large structure still built without and Iron nails. Worth a quick visit if you are in Sanjiang but not worth a special trip.

Amazing architecture
Nov 2015
A detour after a local at Yangshuo showed me the photo of this tower and the bridge. There were quite a few this kind of drum tower on my way from Longji to Sanjiang but this drum tower is the biggest I saw so far. It looks quite differently at night when lights are on.

Could Be So Much More

The Drum Tower is indeed a pretty cool structure and fun to walk up, but they could do so much more with the space re: sharing the local history and culture. A missed opportunity. Still worth the effort.

Dong drum tower in Sanjiang
Sep 2015
The walk to the tower is very enjoyable, pay attention to the rock formation in front of the tower. The unique construction of this tower and form makes a worth while visit. There is a picture display inside of drum towers in the area...from them you can develop a sense of importance the towers played in the Dong villages.

Majestic Dong Architecture
Feb 2014 • Couples
The Drum Tower is a majestic-looking structure perched on top of a hill and is pretty much visible from most locations around town. I would have given it 4 stars but there is a fee just to view the inside of the tower, which is tiny! We peeped in from the entrance and were not wowed by the inside (the exterior is much grander-looking). Still, it's worth climbing up the steep stairs just to view the tower if you're in the area.
