I did not have the opportunity to go up the tower on my visit to Guangzhou, but I did walk along the river nearby. I think the tower is especially beautiful at night, and you should definitely go and see it if you are in the Guangzhou area.

Guangzhou thriving business district deserves a visit from the top of the city. The 488mt drop off is without any doubt one of the most amazing experiences you can have in this type of towers. I've visited the Seoul tower, the Victoria Peak at Hong Kong, the China World in Beijing, not one offers an experience like this one. It's... More

The first time I was here was during the 2010 Asian Games. Unfortunately, I didn't have a ticket for the Games, but I had a good view of everything from across the river. All I really wanted to see was the fireworks display at the close, and they didn't disappoint at all. Probably the most fantastic fireworks display I've ever... More

During the Canton fair I went to 2.Huacheng Avenue No. 203, GTL spring Plaza No. 85-87 and I took few pictures of the Canton Tower. If you have spare time I would advise to go inside. I did not go inside.

Excellent except for the ☔. Pretty chilly up on the 110th floor. Was going to try the restaurants but seem pricey and bad reviews. Service was great.

I was in Guangzhou for Canton Fair Exhibition. During that tour I visited Canton Tower and it was excellent. A total of 111 floors and a roof top to have a magnificent view of the city. The tower is filled with various activities like cinema, cafe's, business meeting halls, etc. A must see affair.
