We did not go inside the tower but we did spend an evening across the river from it walking in the plaza and enjoying the colors. My boys looked forward to seeing the tower ever day and were very excited every time they saw it.

We had business lunch in the restaurant on top floor of the tower and for such a touristic place food was surprisingly good. Views are amazing from the tower and i would definitely recommend to take the tram on the roof of the hotel, very impressive at night!

Nice view on a clear day. Right on the river and a quick walk from the metrro station. A little but expensive but a fun time.

The tower itself is a nice structure and gives a nice view of the city from up above. The chinese restaurant however that is there, don't have any waiters that speaks any english. After struggling to order anything their service was very slow and their food was not impressive but rather over priced. Won't be going back.

Well worth the trip to the top, however squeamish you are about heights. You are so high up, so far above the high-rise buildings below, it is as if you are flying!

The Canton Tower was lit up in many wonderful colours. It can be seen for miles around.It is one of the most outstanding icon in GuangZhou. It is a must see landmark when you are in Guangzhou, esoeciallly at night when it is lit up with many colours.

Another day another tower. This tower is most definately best viewed on dusk or at night time. It's vivid colour display will round out any day trip of Guangzhou. A superb sight and worth the detour to see.
