“Not spectacular, but deserves a higher ranking”
Review of Yuejiang Tower

Yuejiang Tower
Ranked #22 of 407 things to do in Nanjing
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 August 2013

It's a nice little wooded hill, it's a rather beautiful building, the views from the top are worth the climb, and you can go up on a real open-air escalator, the same as in a shopping mall, but this one is among the trees. I had never seen such a sight. We took it going up because we were afraid we wouldn't make it to the top before closing time. But otherwise, I would recommend the climb on foot.

The tower has been heavily renovated, but it is beautiful and provides a fantastic view of the Yangtze River. It was very much worth the experience to go there. Inside is information on Zheng He (the Chinese Columbus). His shipyard and a replica of his treasure ship are nearby and also worth a visit.

We were tossing up going to Sun Yat-sen's tomb but got recommended this place instead. Took a taxi from central Nanjing (Ibis) which cost about 22Yuan. 40 Yuan per person entry fee, got us onto the ancient wall, wandering around, entry into the various towers and the park. very nice, although the steps up to the tower would be a challenge for older folk, lots of benches to rest though, but don't take a stroller or expect wheel chair acess:-)

Great views of the Yangtze River and container ships trotting up and down, plus the city spread out in all its glory.Site looks out over many areas where thousands of people were massacred during the Japanese invaison (see Nanjing Massacre museum).
Definately worth a visit with emperors throne and paneling quite nice inside the tower.
Lots of nice photo ops.
