A 433 meter tower that offers an awesome view of Guangzhou and is a must see for anyone visiting the city. The light show offered by the tower is a great show as well.

An amazing view. To visit for sun set or at night to enjoy the city skyline. Yet a bit expensive, it is the best point of view on Zhujiang new Town at night.

Nice view from the bubble car and from the top, especially at night. Enjoyed the short visit but very crowed, long queue to get out.
