Pearl River Night Cruise

The night scene on two sides of the Pearl River is so enchanting that you must have a look. The best way is by boat. Tourists can take a night cruise on the Pearl River from one of the five wharfs, including Tianzi Wharf, Dashatou Wharf, Zhongda Wharf, Fangcun Wharf and Xidi Wharf. Along the Cruise, you will pass by many shining buildings decorated by light, such as Canton Tower, Xinghai Concert Hall, Haiyin Bridge, various western style buildings in Shamian Island…

Visit Bars & Pubs in Guangzhou

Three famous bar streets: Binjiang Road, Huanshi Road and Bai'e Tan, are the best known Guangzhou nightlife areas. Binjiang Road Bar Street is by the bank of Pearl River, and has lovely scenery.

There is no dock nearby. You should go to Tianzi Wharf and join in the Pearl River Night Cruise.
Take a taxi directly. The cab fare is CNY 50 to 60. :)
