Nanchang Star Amusement Park (Northwest Gate), Nanchang

3.4
Take a ride on Nanchang Star Amusement Park (Northwest Gate), observing panoramic views of the city from a height of 160 m (525 ft). Opened in 2006, it was the tallest of its kind in the world, until it was superseded two years later. Taking half an hour to complete a single revolution, you're afforded time to relax and watch your view evolve. Though the gondolas are supposedly air-conditioned, it's worth visiting after the heat of the day has subsided a little. Consider a nighttime excursion, when the wheel lights up like a kaleidoscope. Nanchang Star Amusement Park (Northwest Gate) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Nanchang Edition.

  • Passing by saw, it's good, and want to experience, but the fear of heights. Located in the River, is said to be Asia's second Ferris wheel, a circle in the air can last for as long as half an hour, that's good.

Where to stay in Nanchang

Expect well-maintained business hotels in Nanchang, but if you're looking for affordable accommodations, don't set your expectations too high. While this destination has hundreds of hotels and hostels to choose from, the inexpensive options tend to lack modern comforts. If possible, spend a little bit more on a mid-range hotel to secure adequate amenities. If you have the money to spend on a more upscale international hotel, plenty of these options lie distributed throughout the city.
