  • To tell the truth, from 2004 years to Wuhan Reading, has always known that Wuhan has a yellow crane tower, very famous (๑. ๑) and then there is no. In the yellow Crane Tower bus station can see the yellow Crane Tower, then still need to go in. Some of the attractions are like this, the farther the station feel the momentum of the extraordinary, because most of the ancient buildings are often repaired, close to look will find the ancient buildings on the market popular building materials, and then the impression will be greatly reduced. →_→ until 2016 bored spend 100 yuan to do Zhang Wuhan travel year card, free to play Wuhan's 21 scenic spots, Yellow Crane tower nature in which, this is the first time to Wuhan in ten years into the Yellow Crane Tower Park.

However, the fog haze is very serious, boarded the yellow 鶴 floor only the vast expanse of fog, is the regret of this trip!!

  • Top tourist attraction in Wuhan. Maybe THE top. There's a lot of historical and poetic significance associated with the building, which is cool. You also get some sweet views of the Yangtze River and the city from the upper levels.
  • Very interesting site to visit. Better than our expectation. The photo services are totally rob for money. Other than that, all good.
  • This place is one of the sight see historical places in Wuhan. It has very big garden. It was built by classic architecture of Chinese, wonderful place. Its scene is so beautiful when the weather is good :). This place is good choice for relaxing in city center. Ticket price is 40 CNY for one person.
  • A landmark of Wuhan. Nice view from the top of the tower and nice surrounding parks.
  • I was led here in mid March 2017 as the place was made famous by an introductory line of a famous poem I was and am not particularly fond of traditional tower architecture particular when it was under renovation. Anyhow, it was nice that I was once here and I do not think I would come here again!
