Transparent walkway for the win

A bit pricey and you may encounter some long lines but the transparent walkway experience is pretty spectacular. The line for the restaurant at the top was quite long when I was... read more

Went up in the pearl tower, just being near this building at day and night is incredible, so beautiful. Observation deck is really cool and gives a great view plus interesting historical facts of the city and buildings. There is also an awesome glass floor level, where most of the deck is glass! At the main level there is a... More

This is a hard attraction to rate. It is very much worth going all the way to the top and get some great photos of the city. Problem is, if you catch it during the weekend or holiday, there will be so many Chinese visitors you'll never get to the top.

The architecture on show is magnificent. A real sight to see. Bring a good camera if you have it and hope that the day is not too misty. It's also very close to both high street and luxury shopping malls so bring your wallet if that's your thing

If you are Shanghai and have very restricted time even so you had better to find some time and visit to this area. This tower and everything around is very nice designed and looks modern. This is very good place to visit both in day and night time. Lot of lights and lot of modern towers make this place just... More

I along with my wife & son visited the wonderful tower in December 2015 that time weather was also cold. From top floor down of the city can seen as some parts of the floor are made of thick glass. Wonderful view.

Getting your ticket is fine. However, once you get in the entrance, the queue to just the single lift up the shaft is very long. It took us an hour to finally get up to the top pearl. Do not try to get to the topmost pearl if you do not have the time. The top pearl is supposed to... More

It cost about £22 pp to go up and you get a fast lift up to 263m. The views are great although the Shanghai skyline seems to be continually hidden by smog. The highlight was the glass floor where you could see straight down. Wow that was scary, good fun
