Night Cruise Introduction

Pearl River night cruise
Pearl River night cruise
 

Compared with daytime cruises on the Pearl River, night cruises are more attractive. The sparkling lights on both banks of the river and the moon reflecting on its waters create a magical atmosphere. It starts from the White Goose Pool and end at either the Guangzhou Bridge in the east or the Baihedong (White Crane Cave) in the south.

During the two hour cruise every visitor will be entranced by the beauty of the river and sights such as the White Goose Pool, Zhuhai Square, Aiqun Mansion, the Guangzhou Hotel and the European architecture of Shamian Island buildings. The ship also passes under ten famous bridges including Renmin Bridge, Haizhu Bridge, Guangzhou Bridge, and Jiefang Bridge.

As I know, there is only one cruise will start at 23:00 and it's hard to say if you can catch it. So try to get the wharf earlier to book the tickets. Also, the departure time will be affected by the weather.

You can book the ship tickets on the official website of Pearl River Night Cruise; its booking hot line is 020-88810347 or 13902300109. You'd better find a Chinese to help you, because there is no English official website. Nice trip!
