Yellow Crane Tower, Wuhan

3.4
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.

  • Wuhan's high to the top of the Board a beautiful Tower. You can get in return for 80 yuan. I think it's a little expensive, but the way it's not a very already enter wuhan tourist.

  • Chinese culture has a long history. Worth it. For the glorious history of the motherland, there is a chance to walk more, look more. After all, this is a cultural heritage, but also worthy of our discovery and heritage of wealth.

  • Reconstructed last in the mid 1980s. Nice views from the top. Go for a walk up into the park, and get away from the bustle of the main attraction. You can listen for the river and hear the cars stream on the bridge.
  • Nice place to have an overview of the Yangtze river and the city. Better to go there when the weather is clear.
  • Poor reconstruction, lost the feel of an ancient tower. A total waste.
  • 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
  • Worth a climb to the top.

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.
