We went at evening after the lights of the city were on. Absolutely stunning! Although it took more than an hour to get finally at the top, a bit disorganised in my opinion. Only couple of lifts for thousands of people. There was a clear floor glass and it was pretty amazing to walk on, giving you a weird feeling.... More

I absolutely loved the scenery from this tower. A little word of advice though, its best to go up here during daylight as pictures taken in the glass floor section will turn out stunning! I went there around dusk time and only managed to get a few nice photos before nightfall because they will light up this annoying purple light... More

Since my review of the Shanghai Highlights tour was miss-rated as terrible, let me correct: it was fabulous in every way! And the Oriental Pearl tower was a highlight because it gives a wonderful bird's eye view of the city. Also, the museum in the tower gives an excellent history of Shanghai.

The Oriental Pearl Tower is actually a TV tower. It is well lit up in the evenings and makes for a great place to click photographs. Take a selfie with the tower in the background. There are plenty of selfie stick vendors around, ensure that you pick one up from them, they really come in handy. Bargain and you'll get... More

Everyone comments on the architecture in SHanghai, but I did not expect to be impressed as much as I was from this viewpoint. It was amazing to see how far the expanse of the city. The buildings were all visible from the tower. It was really amazing to see the layout of the city from above. The clear floor was... More

You get wonderful views of the city and descriptions of key buildings. Nice shopping area in building. This place also houses the Shanghai Museum, a must see.

Although did not get a chance to visit the tower but its imposing position could be seen from a distance. At night it looked brilliant with lights shining.

We visited the Oriental Pearl Tower; it was extremely crowded, with a queue of at least 90 minutes at the bottom of the tower and a further 30 minutes to get from the lower level to the 'Space Capsule' at the very top of the tower and another long queue to get back down again. We did visit on a... More
