Yellow Crane Tower

September 22nd, 2013 by snow

Yellow Crane TowerIn recent years, Yellow Crane Tower has risen up as one of the highlights of Yangtze River cruise. For most of the tourists, it has become a must-see during Yangtze River cruise. Now let’s pay a visit to it.

First of all let me give you a brief introduction of the Yellow Crane Tower before you go on Yangtze River cruise. The Yellow Crane Tower was originally built on military purpose. In the Three Kingdoms Period, the tower was built as a watchtower in one corner of the Xiakou city. Because of the unifying of the whole country, the tower lost its military value and gradually turned into a sightseeing spot for the tourists and visitors. During your Yangtze River cruise, see if you can trace the historical marks of it. With the development of the city, this tower had become a popular tourist attraction. Back in the Tang Dynasty, a large number of literati had paid visits to it, leaving a large number of famous poems which make the Yellow Crane Tower well-known to more and more people. On your Yangtze River cruise, you may find a lot of inscriptions left by those people. From the year 223 when the Yellow Crane Tower was first built to 1985 when it was last reconstructed, the tower had passed 1762 years during which, according to accessible documents, it was demolished for 12 times and rebuilt for 12 times and renovated for scores of times. During your Yangtze River cruise on this tower, you may not see the marks left by time but this tower has witnessed a lot.
The Yellow Crane Tower is well-known as the top of the three famous towers in South China and one of the highlights along Yangtze River cruise line. As one of the symbols of the Wuhan city, the Yellow Crane Tower is standing on the top of the Snake Hill. During your Yangtze River cruise, you may easily see that the Yellow Crane Tower is closely associated with its surroundings, in other words, the beauty of the tower is inseparable from its natural environment. Combining the classic poetry and modern beauty, the Yellow Crane Tower reflects the Chinese traditional customs of climbing mountains and getting close to the nature. On your Yangtze River cruise, by ascending to the Yellow Crane Tower, you can enjoy the fantastic scenery of Wuhan city and the mighty Yangtze River, feeling the relaxing and purifying of the body and the mind.
