Canton Tower

Built in 2005 and put into service in 2010, the Canton Tower is a television tower with 600m.

From the top, visitors have a birds-eye view of the whole city. Inside the Tower are interesting entertainment items, romantic restaurants with delicious food, and several fantastic lookout platforms for shooting photos, some of them holding many top world records.

On the 106th floor, there is the highest revolving restaurant in the world at 423m, which can simultaneously accommodate 130-150 people at the table. At the height of 488 m, there is the world’s highest open-air photography terrace, and one can have a panoramic view of Canton City.

On the roof of the Tower is the tallest Ferris wheel in the world. The Ferris wheel consists of 16 cabins where one can taste the adventure of riding in the sky and admire the cityscapes of the city.

From 168m to 334.4 m is the “Spiderman” footbridge, the longest suspended footbridge in the world. Walking on the footbridge is a great adventure. You start on the 33rd floor to finish on the 62nd floor with a total length of 1000m. It takes about 1 hour of walking.
