Owner description: Also known as the Guangdong and Canton river, the Pearl River is the third largest river in China. It is called Pearl River, because it has a stone island resembling a huge pearl. A cruise along the Pearl River in Guangzhou City has become a must for tourists.

Since we stayed near Beijing Lu (the walking mall), Tianji Wharf was the nearest and within walking distance.
We paid 250 yuan for buffet dinner and cruise on one of their newest and biggest ship (forgot the name). The whole thing last about 1.5 hours, the food was reasonable and the ship was very nice compared to the one I was on 9 years ago.
What I want to point out is that foreigners need their passport to buy the tickets or they can't get the tickets.
The cruise was definitely one of the highlights of Guangzhou and shouldn't be missed.

A must do at night in Guangzhou to see the lights. Go for a top deck seat for best views. A beautiful city at night.

Was not sure what to expect on Pearl River Cruise which included a Chinese Opera. Arriving for departure across river from Canton Tower we were greeted with a beautiful park to walk through to boardwalk dock. Boat was lit up very brightly with lights of city all around and large light display on bridge. City lights are much more then anything seen in US (yes even Vegas), so prepare for a plethora of hues and neon. As for the Opera on board can’t begin to truly explain the experience. Lights, song, flying stages/seating and a love story unfold all around. Would recommend going to experience a fun night like a Tommy rock opera with a twist. Fun was had by all plus a chance to go upstairs on boat to city CBD lit up as well as passing Party boats. Go indulge Your senses.

I stayed a few minutes away from the Pearl river and I have to say it was one of the best 'rivers to hang out by.
I was there in december and after dark all the tall buildings were lit up like huge tv screens. The light formed images and they were synced to music that played through speakers that were hidden in the trees along the riverbank.
All the ferries were adorned with strip lighting. all in all fantastic way to spend a couple of hours in the evening

Did not try to find out if boat or dinner tours but that is a big river used for transportation. Guangzhou is a very large city size wise.
Actually easy to get around bring your iPad to translate, I am serious especially if you take taxi.
