A River Cruise at Night in Guangzhou

This post is part of my China trip in Guangzhou. I did the river cruise on the first day in Guangzhou, China ๐Ÿ™‚

The river cruise in Pearl river especially at night is one of the famous attractions in Guangzhou, China. Some people might say that if you don’t do a river cruise in Pearl river, means that you’ve never been to Guangzhou … Lol ๐Ÿ˜€

There are quite a few starting point for this river cruise at Pearl river. I got some information about the schedule of the river night cruise from this website:

China trip - Guangzhou - Pearl River Night Cruise - Route

So referring to the schedule above and based from my ticket fare (CNY38), I started from Xidi wharf.

China trip - Guangzhou - Pearl River Night Cruise - Canton Tower

Canton Tower

The city has set everything beautiful for this river night cruise. Theyโ€™ve set the light on the buildings, and on the bridges.

I managed to get some pictures of the bridges and some well-known buildings along the Pearl river using my pocket camera, so … well the picture is not that sharp ๐Ÿ˜›

One thing that people wants to see during this river night cruise is Canton Tower! Canton Tower is the tallest freestanding structure in China, and the fourth tallest freestanding structure in the world.

So here are some pictures from the river night cruise … (the featured image is Jiefang Bridge)

Actually there is room inside the boat, where they’ve already set plenty of seats and table, but hey … I didn’t want to miss anything. The attractions are outside ๐Ÿ™‚ (although on the way to the stopping point, we finally got inside the boat and sit haha).

So if you go to Guangzhou, try to do the river night cruise ๐Ÿ˜‰
