I visited on a slightly smoggy day (by Guangzhou standards) which was probably a mistake, but even if the weather had been nice the entry fee of just short of £20 (equivalent) is on the expensive side. Even then, I didn't even splash for the most expensive ticket which was almost twice the price. Even though I went just after... More

When visiting the tower you'd better go for all inclusive, otherwise will be able to climb only up till 108 floor. I've tried the bubble ride on top, pretty cool, a bit scary to be honest)) but the view is much better than from the main floors with dirty windows. Anyway, I had a feeling that it was all much...

I was with some of my friends and the visit was perfect for the tower and area around ir. You should go to river side to enjoy the view also. We go for the tower top and take that dje train on the top.

The place is incredible, but I got rather sick of the pricing tiers. I bought a ticket thinking I would be able to see all the different levels of the tower, but I was mistaken. When I asked if I could pay the difference between my original ticket and the cost to go up to the higher level they refused... More

Beautiful place to visit. Though China is on rise in prices but still it is better priced than other towers in Asia. Weather seems nice. But still must mention China is a menace in case of language problem. Chinese do not understand English well. So can't be guided properly. For Muslims it's hard to get halal food. Apart from such...
