From across the Bund it is a great photo but with the subway stop right next door to it, the tower is well worth a nightime visit. There is a very impressive elevated pedestrian walkway above a major city roundabout right next door to the tower and the photos of the tower from this huge walkway are impressive. Worth seeing...

This building is like nothing else in Shanghai, it's unique shape makes it stand out from al the buildings around it. However, it's real beauty is at night when the lights come on, just spectacular

It used to be a good place to go to see the skyview of shanghai; however, since the Shanghai Tower is open to the public now, I consider that makes the visit to the Pearl Tower a little less attractive. It is still pretty tall at 381 meters, however, the Shanghai tower is more than 600 meters tall. The space... More

The best place to check out Shanghai views is at the top of this tower. On one of the levels, there is a viewing area where the floor is of glass, just like the CN Tower in Canada. Go early, as it gets ridiculously packed within an hour after opening.

I recommend purchasing the revolving restaurant option at 388 RMB. It's a very average buffet dinner but it allows you to skip the massive queues and go straight through. Often the queues could be up to 3-hours! Ticket A for 220 RMB is also a better option as it's a shorter queue, ticket B by itself is the longest queue... More

It is a very tall structure in the center of the town. It is a very nice place to visit, it is relaxing, you can walk around and the grounds are really nice. We had delicious ice cream around there. There is a Disney store which is an attraction in itself

Defenitely worth the lines, the wait for the elevator and the crowded observation decks!! to be able to see straight down is a treat. picking a nice sunny day, plan ahead and get there early to get a great view of the city. the exhibits are amazing also, especially the Shanghai of tomorrow...

Oriental Pearl Tower (Dongfang Mingzhu) in Shanghai is a TV Tower. We We waited approximately one hour (?) until we reached the elevator. We took the elevator up to the "lower level", at 263 m (Sightseeing Floor). The weather was realy nice, so we had lovely view. On the way down from the "lower level" we saw a nice video... More
