380cny for the full tour and 79 for just 1 level. It was OK, but pretty much the same view I get from the plane.

I've only paid to go to the lower observation deck level and even that costed $20. The coolest part of all was probably taking the high-speed elevator.

During the vacation of National Holiday, I went to Guangzhou for a holiday with my friends. In the first evening, we were going to visit one of the most famous buildings in Guangzhou, which is also the symbol tourist attraction for travelers to visit---Canton Tower. As far as I know, it is the third tallest building in China, and the... More

Couldn't imagine how beautiful Guangzhou is until we looked at it from the top of Canton tower in the evening. The 'bubble' tram is a great feature which allows you to have a 360 degree view of the city. Breathtaking. The admission ticket is pricey, and we had spent a fortune for a family of 4. The restaurants are also... More

I had lunch with a friend and it was so nice, the location in 107 floor, the food and the atmosphere.

I am not a fan of heights but i must admit i really enjoyed going to the top of this tower, you're in awe of how high it really is, we took the bubble ride around the top which was just awesome, going at night or sunset is the best (we went at night) but you get an awesome view... More

I encourage you to pay the extra fee to get to the very top of the structure and ride the glass bubble tram that encircled the tower's top It takes you on a very slow revolution around the tower with a 360 degree view of Guangzhou. Something about the design made the precarious looking ride feel secure to me. Even... More

Paris has Eiffel Tower and Guangzhou has Canton Tower. It is definitely elegant and poise and looks the part from the outset. What's outstanding about the Tower is that you get to enjoy the horizontal Ferris wheel on the top so that you get an appreciation of the scenic view of Guangzhou from all sides. There are also thrill rides,... More
