You really only have to visit one place in Wuhan if you want to get your fix of traditional ancient Chinese architecture and peaceful landscape. It's all right here in the middle of a city of 14 million people. This 1,800 year old tower is...More

It's truly the best of the city the climb to the top is well worth it during the day then come back again at night. Being able to see it all lit up is a sight to behold

It wasn’t raining when we went, but later it was raining cats and dogs! We did not bring our umbrella nor rain jacks. The place is definitely worth visiting! You need to learn some Chinese poetry and history to appreciate it!

We were in China in winter - pretty bloody cold! But the Yellow Crane Tower was amazing even though it was raining. I would highly recommend it anyway. You can get some beautiful atmospheric shots inside and from the Tower, and there is amazing detail...More
