Landmark Tourist Spot
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. A visit to Canton Tower represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Guangzhou family vacation planner to plot your vacation.

Where to stay in Guangzhou

Guangzhou's commercial industries make it well-equipped to host visitors, though do book well ahead of time if traveling during the peak fall and spring trade fair rushes. The city's gleaming skyscrapers contain a number of the best four- and five-star hotels in Guangzhou, while others lie tucked away in historical European-style buildings. For budget-friendlier options, a number of youth hostels welcome a steady stream of international visitors, though most are located outside of the city center.
