One of the most renowned structures of its kind in the nation, Yellow Crane Tower and its ornate construction stand as a beloved city icon. Though this iteration of the tower dates back to 1981, the tower itself has existed in several forms since the third century CE. Admire the multi-tiered design of the tower, which features red-orange tiled rooftops and distinctive upward-curving awnings. Make your way up to the top of the tower to access its viewpoint, from where you can enjoy sweeping panoramas out over the surrounding city and river. Yellow Crane Tower is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Wuhan Edition.

  • The tower looks real good. We took the battery car from the entrance. It was way too crowded due to China national holiday, so we skipped climbing the tower. Overall, I think it's worth the visit. 
  • It was a very good visit for me! The entry is not very expensive and with the 50% student card. There is a huge park with statues and small pretty places for photos in addition to the tower which is very pretty.

  • Yellow Crane Tower is a beautiful place to meet in the city of Wuhan. It is a place where walking enough to explore all the paths which have this site. Climb the tower is a beautiful experience that the story about the tower and the city is known. From the top floor of the tower you can see the entire city from any room sides. On the site there are places to buy souvenirs. To get you can take a taxi which is not very expensive. There are buses that pass near the place that are cheap. A preferred place to meet.

  • Fine for tourist. However very crowded during peak season. The building is not historical anyway. But does have a vintage point over the Yangtze river
  • the best place to enjoy the view of the lake and hills on a good day
  • OK but I haven't wasted and won't too much time and money for it.
  • the ugly and large building is made of reinforced concrete.
  • Poor to visit even it's a main attraction in Xian
