I was told that to go go the top of Canton Tower you have to pay. So I decided to enjoy it from the other side of the Pearl River. By day it just looks like an hour glass. By night it comes alive, glowing...More

The footsteps/ground-area of the 595.7-metre Canton Tower (Chinese name: 广州塔), is home to at least part of most major celebrations in the city. It is a common gathering place for celebrations. I’ve enjoyed going up in the transparent-walled elevator to the 108th floor. On most...More

You didn’t visit Guangzhou if you didn’t at least walk around Canton Tower. There is an admission cost, and packages with prices that rise with each height level. There’s much to do within the tower itself: a bubble ride at the top, TV & radio...More

In the tower on the first floor you can buy a ticket. But see that this day was clear weather. If there is a bad time, you will spend this money in vain. If you want to look at Guangzhou from a height for free, go to the... More

Hi 77sharifah- this tower was open around 2010. I did not specifically noticed the wheelchair aspect, but there are many hostesses around, and I think it's best for you to enquire directly with them.
