tranquil and historic spot in a bustling city

Popular location. Tranquil gardens and historic icons. Good for a visit and to catch a break from the City.

Was there on 7 Aug 2016, one of the hottest days in Wuhan this year, I really enjoyed scaling the 5 floors tower! Stayed there for about 90 min, from 18-19.30 and personally witnessed when the lights lit up the tower at 19:00)) This grandiose view reminds me of XI An's Big Goose Pagoda, very beautiful in the distance)

It was a pleasant place to visit and interesting to see the tower and works within that are mostly recreations since the original tower was destroyed. I would plan to spend a couple hours seeing the tower and you will need to walk up (and down) 5 stories of steps to see all of it, so it may not be... More

Nice and peaceful location for a half day sight seeing trip. The YCT sits within a large garden complex. You should plan 2-4 hours for your visit and you will do a lot of walking. The tower itself is nice, but bear in mind it is only about 40 years old, having being rebuilt 12 times over many hundreds of... More

China has too many landmarks with rich history stories to tell. Yellow Crane Tower is just one of them. I find ticket is expensive & nothing much to see. It is famous simply because of the famous poet Li Bai was once here before. This place could probably take up 2hours of your time.

The reconstructed temples and pagodas were beautifully ornate and offered great views of the Qangjiang River from the upper stories. The many ceramic murals on the inside walls of the towers were stunning and worth a visit on their own

Beautiful when lit up at night. We enjoyed the tour of the grounds and the tower itself. We were finishing up after hours, so it was a little tricky to figure out how to get out as it got darker. There are a lot of stairs, so be aware. There are elevators in the tower itself. Wear appropriate walking shoes.... More

A lot of history at this high-traffic area. A lot of visitors come through and for good reason. But, there are plenty of places to find a quiet spot.

One of the popular tourist spots in Wuhan. Nice city view when you get to the top floor (level 5) of the tower. A lot of walking and climbing. We spend two hours there during the day and I think that is good enough. The tower lite up at night so plan for your trip to take both day time... More
