Clear enough this is the most impressive modern building in Shanghai and strongly believe it is worthwhile a 2 hours que before enjoying a breathtaking view of the area. I would suggest to go in the late morning rather than during the afternoon to avoid long time que

If you are in China you are going to have to get use to the queues, luckily we visited at about 5pm and probably only waited an hour or so to get to the top. I certainly didn't enjoy the queue jumpers and the spitting, however the view even though it was overcast was great. Standing on the perspex floor... More

Pearl Tower is interesting and easy to get too on the Big Bus. Great views but go early before the afternoon crowds. The view is amazing but not if you don't like heights.

The Pearl TV is a must for anyone travelling to Shanghai. The views are amazing and the pictures you can take will give you lifelong memories. The pearl TV tower is also the perfect backdrop for photos as it lights up at night.

While I would like to say a great experience, our day on the tower was tempered by reduced visibility by the smog, so plan to go early and hope for no smog. The ticket is combined with a journey thru the Shanghai museum in the tower base, some early photos showing the city thru time and indicating early European influence.... More

The view from all level is great.walking on the glasses floor is fantastic and might be scary for some who are afraid from high leaves,but everyone should try it,so did I and did'nt regret it.you have to wait in lounge queue and will go up with elevator.Compare to Burj al khalifa in Dubai or Petronius in KL(malysia)the ticket isn't expensive.

While this is like any structure in any other city, the location adds to the experience. The metro station is close and as there are walkways in all directions over the crossings, the view is very good and makes for good photographs or selfies.

Pearl Tower is very popular among all the visitors. You can see the Shanghai city from the top of this tower. At the top floor of this tower is built by glass which is very popular as sky walk. If you stand on the glass floor you can see everything below which is very scary and exciting too. It is... More
