As the sun sets and the day transitions to night, the city of Guangzhou, China, comes alive with a kaleidoscope of lights that dance across the skyline. There’s no better way to experience this luminous spectacle than by taking a Pearl River Cruise. Drifting along the river, you’ll be captivated by the dazzling display of lights and the city’s enchanting beauty.

The Iconic Canton Tower

The Pearl River Cruise offers a spectacular view of the iconic Canton Tower, one of the tallest structures in the world — located just an 18-minute drive from Ascott IFC Guangzhou, home to well-appointed apartments in Zhujiang New Town. As you glide past, the tower’s shimmering LED light display creates an unforgettable visual masterpiece, casting an otherworldly glow on the water below.

Sparkling Skyscrapers

Guangzhou’s modern skyline is a sight to behold, and it truly comes to life after dark. The cruise provides a front-row seat to the glistening skyscrapers that line the riverbanks, with each building competing to outshine the other in a symphony of radiant colours.

Historical Charm of Haizhu Square

As your cruise gently glides through the city, you’ll pass by Haizhu Square, a historic district that elegantly blends the old and the new. Admire the beautifully lit bridges and colonial-era buildings, which offer a glimpse into the city’s rich history.

Themed Cruises

Many Pearl River Cruise operators offer themed experiences, such as traditional music performances, elegant dining, or even karaoke nights. These add an extra layer of entertainment and culture to your nighttime voyage.

Firework Extravaganzas

Depending on the time of year, your cruise may coincide with one of Guangzhou’s stunning firework displays. Witnessing a colourful burst of fireworks against the backdrop of the illuminated cityscape is an awe-inspiring experience.
