We went with a group of 6 people to dine at the Pearl Tower Dinner Buffet. All-in-all the food was nothing special, but there was a wide selection and it hit the spot. The views of the city were SPECTACULAR. We took the time to visit all of the balls in the tower and it was well worth the wait... More

We started at the top in the small ball for the fabulous 360 deg views of the city. Then to the middle ball for the glass floor. We finished off the visit with the Shanghai History Museum at the bottom.

There are several Spheres for viewing, each fascinating. The glass floor is especially fun and crowded with one one making the fuss and fake fear that is made at the Willis Tower in Chicago. On holidays the tower can get crowded.

This was my second time to the Pearl Tower so I decided to try the package that included the buffet dinner at the revolving restaurant. Very disappointed in the food choices, sanitation and the service. Choices were mostly Asian with a few others. I was concerned that most meats were at room temperature and salad foods appeared less than cold... More

Took Metro Line 2 and followed exit 1 to get a close-up view of Oriental Pearl Tower. If you visit at night, you will have the bonus of seeing the tower light-up in purple. Just walk around the elevated roundabout to get a 360 degree view of the area near to the Oriental Pearl Tower. Worth spending your time visiting... More

Enjoyed our time here as is amazing place. The view is good as didn't realised how many sky scrapers are in Shanghai. I found standing on the glass floor looking down bit scary but fun at the same time

Cost is 220 to get to the very top and well worth it. We went at 5 PM and hardly anyone there. Well organized and the glass floor that circles the entire tower was amazing. Looking down, not for the faint of heart.

Despite the existance of other tall buildings in Shanghai, this tower in my perspective is still the icon of Shangia due to its unique design and located within the center of CBD. This building is a must to see, I would even recommend to take pictures in the evening as the lighting is perfect!
