It was a very quick ride to the 60th floor and then a walk down to the 59th floor for the walk around the clear glass/plastic floor. Did not realise how many people were apprehensive about walk on the surface. Great fun, running and jumping with the Chinese thinking you are mad.

Way up high a "glass" floor, spectacular views. Not much more to say. It is fun to watch the people some are hesitant to step out onto this floor you feel as if you are walking high in the air unprotected.very unique. The buffet restaurant is a nice place for lunch. Not the best choice. However the views from there... More

I went up to the elevator and walked on the glass floor which is a great experience for me. It was a rainy night with fog which made walking on a glass floor less fearful. I could see some light from the building below which is pretty still. I believe it would be a beautiful place when there is less... More

Being one of the highest tower itself makes it an interesting destination for travelers. While the two levels of spheres give a view of city skyline there is one place thrill seekers don't want to miss: A storey that has a glass flooring so, you can stand several hundred feet above the ground and see the roads beneath your feet....

The tower is really nice and beautiful to start with. The entrance fees is RMB220 for the full pacakage. You can view the city of Shanghai at different level of the tower. You can really see the 'concrete jungle and the density of the skyscrapers in Shanghai. It doesn't look like a city at the higher floor...almost like in a... More

What a great experience. Started with the museum visit on the ground floor to understand the old part of Shanghai and the history of this amazing city. The ride up the elevator was measured in metres rather than floors (very cool) and the walk on the glass floor around the viewing floor was amazing. We finished with what would have... More

We were here twice during this trip and my niece was so happy and excited. We took many pictures, walked around, sopped at the Brand Name Mall and ate Dim Sum there.

If you are in Shanghai, then Pearl Tower really deserves your visit. Excellent structure of glass and magnificent view of shanghai from the tower but only visit on a sunny day,,, visiting on a rainy or hazy day not recommended due to poor visibility...

I did not really enjoy going up to the mid level of the tower. However, the wax museum at the ground level of the tower featuring the old shanghai was very interesting and informative. Ticket price is too high !
