Speed to the top of the world’s third tallest TV and radio tower for a spectacular view, or just gaze at this beautiful structure from afar, especially striking when lit up at night.

Cool Building!

Love this building, very unique and has a lovely light show at night. Definitely worth the trip to take a few photos.

I only went 1/2 way because of smog. Could have paid more to go the top but would have seen nothing.

This is the jewel of the Pudong Bund. The restaurant is a revolving platform with a buffet of east and west dishes. The next floor down is a glass bottom platform with dizzying views. For an extra charge you can go to the top "pearl" for the best and highest views. The lower "pearl" is a standard open air viewing... More

If you've seen the CN Tower, Eiffel Tower or any other tower really, then you can decide whether it's worth going to another one. Granted, this comes with its own set of unique views and experiences. For instance, they are uber aware the lineups are absolutely insane, so they have a mini photo exhibit in the interior detailing the history... More

Got here during autumn in the middle of november 2015. It's Misty all day in Shanghai..and lack of visibility, but still amazing to be there. Walking in the glass skywalk, sightseeing. But maybe it'll be better view when it's spring or summer there. Wish i Can be there again :)

We went to the tower on a Saturday afternoon and had to shuffle along a queue for over 45 minutes before we reached the lifts. There is also airport style security and bag scanning. Once up the top it was still busy but there was no problem finding a spot on the glass floor to see down to the ground.... More

The last time I was here they were still working not the completion of this tower. This was a great morning activity even though it was overcast and the fog/smog was rolling in. We did not have to wait long as we were there early. We were whisked up the elevator and had about an hour to check out the... More

It is rather costly for the ticket. CNY220 will bring you to the highest point but I paid CNY160 up to the upper sphere, lower sphere and Shanghai Municipal History Museum. I went in the evening, knowing that the night scene is always better than the day with all the streets lighted up. The view was spectacular, most exciting thing... More

Need a smog free, blue sky day to get good views, total 360 view, from the observation deck. Glass floor is good fun. No need to go higher than the level with the glass floor. Top price ticket allows you to next level but no better view from there.

The elevator will take you up on the 263 meters high to the sightseeing floor of the tower! There is actually another floor above this one where the glass terrace is! This is where you could experienced by choice naturally the feeling to be in the air over Shanghai... Not every one would take the chance to step on the... More
