Yellow Crane Tower, Wuhan

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Monument
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.

  • It is one of the tourist points of Wuhan to visit in good weather to enjoy his point of view. Don't hesitate to walk in the adjacent Park.

  • 這是一趟完美的旅程,看見詩人眼中所見的美景。建議各位連假期間要盡早出門,要不然可能會遇到排隊人潮,要登樓眺望長江需花很多時間等待。  more »
  • Originally built in the Three Kingdom Period., demolished and rebuilt 12 times. Building is now a reconstruction.  more »

  • Nice place to have an overview of the Yangtze river and the city. Better to go there when the weather is clear.
  • 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
  • Expensive to visit, and the place is not really historical. But it is one of the few touristic places in Wuhan.
  • Poor reconstruction, lost the feel of an ancient tower. A total waste.
  • Big garden with a lot of traditional buildings and much history.
