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.

Very nice but ?

From the outside it look interesting, but once inside there is very little to amaze you. Very dirty windows limit the view from the top. At least l can say l have been there

Long time the highest symbol of the new Pudong area. but nowadays it looks as a small building. Still a good attraction to climb up.

Once we got through the school holiday queues (over an hour and a half) and overcame the noise of the enthusiastic visitors, we had a great time.

At 267 meters one gets a breathtakingly panoramic view. The total height of the tower is 468 Mtrs. The sky walk sends chills through the spine as you look down through the glass floor to the land beneath feeling the power and vulnerability at the same time. Last Sunday there would have been 30,000 people visiting the site and had... More

Awesome. Restaurant drinks $$$$, all you can eat was good. Lines can be very long - plan ahead. Walk on the glass floor! Multiple floors to explore. Gift shop is a riot!

This is my second visit to Shanghai and first to the Pearl. Glad I did it, but the wait was long and very warm this time of year! I'm not a fan of heights, but this did not bother me. Views are great, probably even better at night.

The Pearl Tower is a must of Shanghai city, but I hav to say that is too expensive. If you want to raise the top it costs for 220 yuan (no student discount). On the top the view is very good, but for 110 yuan you can raise the World Financial Centre which is even higher. But the esteem of... More
