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.

  • Yellow crane tower so think of Wuhan went. Rather than a historical building shouldn't so quaint, so new, but agaremasu on the stairs up to the top so I think. Summer is hot stove in China say that just because Wuhan's summer is not recommended.

  • 從地鐵站過去約15分鐘,風景還行,可以看到長江大橋,不過由於是1987年重建的,比較沒有古蹟的味道。一票到底,只有敲大鐘要再收錢。 
  • One of the main attractions of Wuhan. The whole complex, upsetting is that it's all new, that in the spirit of the Chinese demolished without thinking and build an exact copy of the

  • 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.
