Owner description: The Canton Tower stands at the intersection of Guangzhou’s new urban central and the Pearl River scenery zone. Right across the river, is the Asian Games Park and Zhu Jiang New Town, together with the Guangzhou Opera House, Library, No.2 Children’s Palace and Guangdong Provincial Museum it forms the new metropolitan sky line. The Canton Tower is the tallest TV tower in the world with a total height of 600m. The Tower was built using the latest engineering technologies, but inherits 2000 years of Canton Culture. It displays Guangzhou’s vision and determination to the world. The Tower offers an observation deck with a spectacular view, several top-notch restaurants and catering services, 5-star exhibition, convention and entertainment facilities. All these enable you not just to enjoy the magnificent scenery of Guangzhou, but also to experience the excitement of adventure at great heights.

Reviewed 28 May 2014

Did it twice: 2010 & 2012. Amenities are expensive. Be aware of the security checks and make sure empty your own water bottle(s) - airport like. Overlook is great!

Done the shooting from the river side instead of going up to the top level to have the panoramic view of the whole city. its better to overlook from the river side nearby. One of the outstanding and sparkling landmark you could see anyway in the center
