Brought the family to the Oriental Pearl to experience Shanghai from a perfect viewing point. Ease of access was good and not too crowded. We went around 10am so the queues were OK. Well worth a visit.

Summer visit was not quite best planning as the weather was very overcast and there was a definite threat of rain. We bought lunch with our tickets. The trip up was easy and we did not wait long to get to the main observation deck....More

Well worth a visit up , the glass walking floor is good fund and you get great views. The museum on ground floor is excellent and free to visit if you buy the tickets to go up the tower.

I was able to catch the Oriental Pearl Tower on a clear day (thanks to some rain). I had limited time and did not anticipate the Saturday lines. The tower allows you to stop either at the very top or middle, but the top was...More

I visited this place at night and was able to only view the tower from outside. It looked very beautiful with all the lighting etc. The surrounding area is also amazing with luxury malls(IFC Mall) along with food plazas, garden areas and Disney clock tower.

So there are many high-rise towers around the world. But I particularly enjoyed the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai. I liked the fact that they have tried to put together a variety of interesting attractions. The Shanghai History Museum, the VR Roller Coaster,the Transparent Observatory...More

This was a great place to start and understand the layout of Shanghai. But we had a clear day with minimal haze. The glass bottom floors were an added fun bonus.

We were informed the lines were long but they weren't that bad. We waited maybe 15 minutes in a line before we were whisked into an elevator and taken to the observation floor. From the first floor, you take consecutive elevators until you reach the...More

We arrive in Shanghai on 28th July - we are travelling with Viking Cruises. We arrive early in the morning and have the day spare. We are thinking of visiting the Pearl Tower. Do we need to book in advance? We are already visiting the museum with Viking so can we buy tickets for the tower only? If it is possible, when is the best time to visit. Thank you for your help.

No need to book. Best time depends on weather, whether there is visibility or not and if you like day or night. Night is magic in Shanghai but you don't need to be high to enjoy the night skyline.
Do I need to make advanced booking online or do I just buy the entrance ticket when I reach the tower? (estimated visit date is on 19th February 2017). Is the skywalk on the glass deck is included in the entrance fee ? Thanks before.
