Good place with a nice view of GZ city. The entry to the tower is a bit complicated but the staff is quite helpful. Over all - worth a quick 1 hour visit

What an experience! This is a once in a lifetime experience. We went to the revolving restaurant for dinner and the spread was incredible. The experience of waking on a glass floor at that height is mind blowing.

Took a ferry at night and it was really beautiful. Cool breeze, and beautiful lights. Canton tower looks really magnificent upfront. Ticket price ranging from 50-200 RMB. Must see place in Guangzhou.

Easy access via metro line. Beautiful at night! Once you are there, go to the riverside for a walk. Pretty skyline.

Popular attraction, when arriving get a ID from the machine at the ticket office before lining up to purchase ticket, suggest also pay for the outdoor glass bubble that rides outside and around the top of the tower.
