Canton Tower, Guangzhou
(4.3/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
Observe a multi-purpose astronomical, observation, and TV structure at Canton Tower. The illuminated hyperboloid building stands 595.7 m (1.954 ft) tall, which briefly brought it the title of the world's tallest tower. Inside you can visit all sorts of business, entertainment, and recreational facilities divided into five zones, including restaurants, outdoor gardens, 4-D cinemas, conference rooms, and exhibition spaces. The tower contains infrastructural connections situated underground, such as the metro and bus stations. You can also visit the rooftop observatory via high-speed elevators, but it requires purchasing a daily ticket.

  • Tower locals believe one of the main attractions of the city. In the evening, it sparkles and shines all the colors of the Rainbow. You can see her from afar.

  • The visit to the Canton Tower on a surprisingly clear evening in early March was an unforgettable experience. The sheer design and height of the tower amazes everyone. The glass panel walk is a thrilling experience you wouldn't wanna miss. So is the big drop on the top. The capsule tram ride around the tower at the top is exhilarating! Don't miss it for anything, pray for a clear evening, the view from the top is unbeatable, half a kilometre into the sky!
  • This is one of the best experience I ever had,when you go to the top of the tower at night,you can have a awesome scenary ,also you can buy stuff like suveniors & e.t.c
  • Canton Tower is the landmark of Guabgzhou (Canton) city that located along side with the Peral Ricer which is the most beautiful and gorgeous artificial building in the 21st century. Only spend 300RMB (Around £32) then can give an unique sky high metropolitan experience and take you to over 500m height. You can see the whole city landscape which is amazing whatever in daytime or night, and don't miss out the highest 360 degree bubble train and high drop in the world. After sightseeing, you can enjoy a delicated buffet restruant or a Cantonese restruant with city landscape. You absolutely will find that it is an amazing experience and money-worth tour in Canton tower.
  • Phenomenal views of the city. I would definitely recommend it as a must-do while in Guangzhou. The lines weren't too long and the staff was courteous.
  • The landmark of Guangzhou offering breathtaking views of CBD and Huangpu river. After dusk the whole tower is lit up in vivid colours.
