We went here on the Chinese Labour Day weekend. It was busy but manageable. The area has some nice gardens as well. The highlight is the tower and they have tower shaped fudgesicle ice cream which was a nice treat.

Cost to enter is 70 RMB and one to two hours is plenty of time here.

This landmark, although not the original, has been built in the traditional pagoda style architecture. It is surrounded by a large park, which in itself is very pleasant, especially in the summer when it is hot. There are ponds and even cooling mist sprays in the shady areas. Once inside the tower, you walk up a flight of stairs to each level, and each level has beautiful decorative walls and ceilings. There are places you can buy souvenirs, I think it is on the third level. Once you reach the top, it is an open style balcony which gives panoramic views of the city of Wuhan. I was there in early September 2019. I found it very enjoyable. Many Chinese people, couples and families visit. A great introduction to Chinese culture.

It’s a romantic place for the literati in old times of China, this is the reconstructed one but still elegant and beautiful. You could have very good view of the city and know some anecdotes of the ancient Chinese cultured people.

It is one of the highlights of Wuhan, but don't go on a holiday as it is very busy. I went on a May long weekend and waited over an hour and a half to get in. But, once inside you can experience a elaborate Chinese pagoda and get a nice view of the city.

I am a native of Wuhan and often take foreign guests to visit the attractions in Wuhan. My experience is: As a landmark building in Wuhan, the Yellow Crane Tower is a part of our childhood memory. The view from the Yellow Crane Tower is excellent, you can see the beauty of Hanyang district, the modern of Hankou district and the cultural deposits of Wuchang district. You can experience the ancient people's feelings of climbing high and looking far. In the Yellow Crane Tower Park, the winding path leads to a secluded quiet place , there are many“bonus”waiting for your excavation.

Must see if you are in Wuhan. Nice escape from the Hussle & Bussle right outside the walls. The view of the city is great if you climb the tower or not (would suggest you take the climb). Only need to visit once and you can see everything in a few hours.

This is a replica built in 1981, of a tower designed Qing Dynasty architecture, which was previously located here. The original tower, or parts thereof that date back to 223 AD. The first structure was built during the period of the Three Kingdoms (220 to 280 AD).

If you're in Wuhan for one day, for sure you need to visit this site. The reason is obvious, no matter you will enjoy it or not, this site is considered as a symbol of city. Its located not far from subway station, in a walking distance. Its a pity that staff don’t inform you about some discounts (when youre a student it really matters), however the price is not so high (70 RMB).
By going to Tower itself you can have an inspiring view to a city, yet its not the highest point of Wuhan. Moreover, by purchasing ticket you have access to other places such as garden and waterfall or even ring a bell (but for some crazy amount of money). Overall, it takes hours to attend site and enjoy time, while youre in the city.

Beautiful park and well maintained grounds. It is not too busy knowing fantastic photo opportunities and for a leak surely stroll around the plethora of paths. The tower is huge! And there is a large bell that you can ring too.
