“Combine with river walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Walking along the river gives you a nice view onto the tower. In the lower level you can see a model of the temple and the area around the temple from times gone by.
If you pay a fee you can walk up the tower, which we decided to skip.
Right next to the tower you will find Cuiwei Garden (see separate review).

“Good for an after-dinner walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

Go there in the evening after your dinner; and nice to have a cup of Chinese tea there. Guiyang's summer evenings are breezy and cooler than the afternoon. Good to take a walk along the river.

“Normal attraction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2013

If you are not an architect and without an expert guide, you won't appreciate it very much. The surrounding area is worth some time to walk around, though.

“Worth a look”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2012 via mobile

A visit to the Jiaxiu tower is worth a look if you are in Guiyang. There is a promenade along the river side which you can easily walk along to get there. Unfortunately the Nanming River is not in good shape. If possible it's good to visit the tower on dusk and the contrast into night with the city lights is quite nice.

“Great scenery of Guiyang”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2012

In this place, we can enjoy the great scenery of Guiyang especially at the night time on the bridge near the tower.
