Yellow Crane Tower, Wuhan
(3.3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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 was very Chinese in that there was a thick crowd everywhere, but it is still possible to see it all and get close enough access to take pictures. 
  • Access to the upper part can be done by Elevator, although he was banned on the day I visited. The view is amazing and this is surely the most beautiful attraction of Wuhan.

  • If visiting Wuhan this place is definitely not to be missed since it is the number 1 tourist attraction. Definitely a good experience to visit this place. The top view from the tower gives a nice view...  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.
