About Canton Tower

Majestic and extraordinairy. That’s the 604-meter iconic wonder called Canton Tower for you. Located in the heart of Guangzhou, along the Pearl River in southern China. As you soak in the awesome experience of standing atop the elliptical and spiral structure and marvel at the picturesque view of the whole city, what really enamors you is the graceful shape of the spectacular female TV tower with a slim and curvy waist. The dawn of sunset makes the structure even more glamorous and mesmerising as it dons a new colour every day and gets illuminated from the bottom upwards.
