  • Yellow Crane Tower is definitely the index of Wuhan Scenic spots, and Qingchuan, guqin Taiwan and called "The three major attractions in Wuhan." Now the yellow Crane tower, although it is 1981 new repair, but at least some of the clear yellow Crane Tower of the kind of appearance, as the south of the three famous buildings, countless poems mentioned here, so regardless of landscape or historical and cultural factors are worth a go. Tickets: 80 Yuan. The mountain can choose to take the bus, the fare 10 yuan (round-trip). Time words 2 hours is similar, because there is no high-rise building near the yellow Crane Tower, Mount Yellow Crane Tower can clearly see the Yangtze River Bridge and the Yangtze River Changjiang. Yellow Crane tower Back also has pavilion, century Zhongshun and Yue Fei Pavilion. From pavilion shoot Yellow Crane Tower also don't have a taste.

  • I was really excited to see the tower but was a little bit disappointed. But first things first: The tower is located in a not so nice area, but when you arrive at the park where the tower is located ...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • Amazing place to visit, can easily spend 3-4 hours here. I forgot how much the ticket were but it was totally worth the Price
  • A must-go place of Wuhan. The ticket is a little bit expensive. Parks nearby is free. Students with ID card can get a discount. The view of Tower is great, especially after you climb to the top of the tower, where you can have a whole view of the downtown city and the Yangtze river..
  • Even though this tower was rebuild in 1980s, the history of it can trace back to thousand years before. Try to go there in a sunny day, you can have a great view of Yangtze river and city. Night time is good too but due to the park close time, you cant see it....... There is a stature of Yue Fei at east end of the park, really good place to go. Also, there is a cave for the deity Lü Dongbin underneath of the tower foundation. Well, it is in the hill that underneath of the tower. He was the person that fly away with yellow crane in the folklore.

Where to stay in Wuhan

In clusters along the river sit perhaps the most popular accommodations in Wuhan. The newer, chain hotels sit together in shiny commercial districts overlooking the water, while simple guesthouses sit in the older districts, on the more atmospheric streets of the city. Away from the river, on either bank, metro stations and parks become the centers of interest for most hoteliers and guesthouses owners, with a good mix of upmarket and budget options to be found. Some of the most luxurious options in the city lie to the east of the center, including resorts and upmarket branded hotels overlooking the lake.
