Last relic of old Guiyang.

It is the general location, on the bridge and the surrounding area, which make this attraction interesting. There is not much left of old Guiyang. There are some interesting... read more

The views of this area along the river are unmatched in Guiyang. Beautiful at sunset and at night with decorative lighting. You then can stroll along the river canopied by beautiful trees including hanging willows.

There is nothing to do here except look around and take pictures. Daytime is nice to get a clear look at the buildings and nighttime is good for the lights. The time of day doesn't matter too much. There is nothing to do here but walk around, take pictures, and maybe drink tea. There was some historical significance to this... More

We climbed the two-story building - that wasn't very special and the view from there is very limmitted. The older buildings next to it are nice - but not very special.

Not that impressive Nothing special But still good to see ancient building among skyscrapers though It took less than 15min from the hotel Kempinski. If you stay there and wanna take a walk, just try it

It is the general location, on the bridge and the surrounding area, which make this attraction interesting. There is not much left of old Guiyang. There are some interesting displays inside. The adjacent temple was closed for repairs.

The tower is worth climbing up to see the ornate interior of the old class room and the views up and down the river. Sometimse lit up at night, looks like it is floating with the bridge on the river. Gift shop inside and a tea terrace in the middle of the river.

Worth a visit as part of a wider tour around Guiyang as the tower itself is completed in under ten minutes. Pretty location in the middle of the river that winds through the city center. Don't forget to visit the CuiWei pavilion a stone's throw from the Tower. Beautiful cherry blossom trees and an artist's studio at the rear of... More

Enjoy a leisurely walk along the promenand leading you to the center of the city with a wide open public square. Enjoy an afternoon tea or visit some of the shops and buy yourself... More
