Definitely a highlight of Guangzhou. I’d say the perfect time is around the late afternoon so you get to see the views whilst it’s light but whilst you’re up the tower you have the sunset and you get to see the lights of the main buildings turning on. You get to take three very contrasting types of pictures: daytime, sunset,... More

We went there at around 9pm, it's a wonderful place to be in, lively and full of small food stalls to satisfy your needs. Right beside the tower there were riverside walkways, with a beautiful view of the ferrys and buildings on the river. It's worth taking a trip on the open deck ferries available on the towers ticketing and... More

I did not go in the tower but it was a very pretty sight. I would recommend you see it in the night. Also the tallest tower in guangzhou is fairly close to it.

It's one of the most iconic attraction in Guangzhou. Beautiful and amazing light show is there in evening time at regular interval and a must see. You will have a very good view from nearest mall.

A must in GZ. I would place this as #1 destination in GZ. We visited the tower around 5:30 and spent about two hours there including the bubble tram ride at the top. The ticket was less than ~$45 (US) per person which included the tram ride. I thoroughly enjoyed the 360 view of the beautiful GZ city and its... More

Visited Canton Tower at night. Luckily it was a clear day and it was beautiful. They had special laser lights every hour with music. It was spectacular. View it from the square.

We toured canton tower with our 4 kids. Lines were short during week. The bubble care on top of tower was amazing. Lots of shops and eateries on ground floor. A must see if you're in Guangzhou!
