“OK but not worth a special stop”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Quite a nice view from the top but nothing special. Nice vases and ink paintings on the top floor. Wouldn't make a special detour but it is pretty central so can be done easily.

“Great for nighttime discovery”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Climb the tower at night and enjoy the city lights and views. Great photo opportunity and very close to the night markets and food stalls (and western food for those who have to).

“Ancient China”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Along with the city wall, this warrants a visit particularly at night when the lighting effects are dramatic and colourful.

“Interesting experience”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Was worth it even though due to the rain and thunder and lightning in the area the windows were closed and we couldn't get a view from atop the tower. The drum show was good. It's quite a climb up the stairs to the drums for those that may have trouble with stairs. Overall it was interesting but not a must see.
