This is an iconic building in Shanghai so I thought I had to make a visit to the top. However it proved an epic error, while initially the queue doesn't look too bad, you slowly start to realise there are multiple queues, with associated bottlenecks. Ultimately it took me over 3 hours to get to the top and back down... More

The Oriental Pearl Tower is instantly recognisable from the Shanghai district skyline, and the observation level provides fantastic views of the surrounding financial district area and Haungpu River (provided it is not a foggy or smoggy day). Part of the observation level has a glass floor which allows you to look directly down at the ground underneath, and makes for... More

It's an extremely touristy thing to do but if you are in Shangai a trip to the top of the Pearl Tower is a must. The views from the top are amazing and for the not so faint hearted there is a glass bottomed viewing platform. Similar to Burj Khalifa in Dubai, there are professional photo opportunities at the top... More

If you can bear with the crowd & long queue, please ensure you enjoy yourself when you are there because you have already spend hours for the queue. There are only 2 main lifts to go up to the tower, and the queue will be very long especially during China school holidays. (no matter you are going in the early... More

If you are uncomfortable with heights its difficult. Its usually full, no chance to get out, glass floor on the upper deck. Vuew is usually foggy/smoggy, but still worth to go up. Like any tourist attraction: try to get tickets beforehamd, go early.

I very much enjoyed the visit the Pearl tower and was very surprised with the view and the elevator is very fast, and you are able to buy some soveniers.

Great views from the top. A very busy tourist attraction so expect some queues but it's worth it. A few different floors to explore. The revolving restaurant is pretty cool but probably only worth one trip. It's a buffet style meal and the food is ok. Apparently there is a roller coaster inside one of the pearls which we didn't...
