  • I was a couple of days in the center of Guangzhou and the tower is amazing, has access to several of the levels of the tower and there is a restaurant (expensive BTW) to visit, the tower is super modern and really impressive, in the surroundings you can find visits in Ferry River "Pearl" where you can stroll with about 250 Pesos depends on the ferry It is close to a pedestrian zone where the regional Museum of Guangzhou that is well worth visiting, highly recommended.

  • We made a point of visiting the Canton Tower with the aim of experiencing the views and skyline at night. We were not disappointed. The exhilaration of the sky-drop is a must do and worth the money sp...  more »
  • Excellent experience. The views were Brest taking. Bit scary going up in the lift with glass doors if you're scared of heights, but wouldn't have missed it!

  • 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.
