“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely amazing! The observation deck had such a beautiful view. Best part of deck was the glass floor, so you could see straight down below you. Very neat and unique to the area.

“So iconic, you have to see it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

My 5 kids and I took a cab to see the Oriental Pearl Tower and we really didn't know what to expect. But the traffic circle with its elevated pedestrian walk is amazing and allow you to get a great view of the tower from all angles! We had so much fun walking around, visiting Super Brands Mall and eating at Din Tai Fung (in Super Brands) that we went back a second day to see the Tower at Night. I recommend going at both day and night because the lighting at night is very cool! Definitely worth it!

“Best value Tower in Shanghai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

The Pearl Tower is the best value Tower in Shanghai at the moment. 360 degree views of the city, view up and down the river, No glass photography on one of the levels (you need to stretch), Glass floor experience on the middle level. Don't forget to visit the Museum in the basement before you leave. Best time of the day - get up before sunset and hang around for the lights to come on

“Go on a clear day and you get what you pay for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Adults and kids alike were enthralled at the views afforded by this sightseeing spot. Admission is fairly steep, but it includes everything once you're in there - 3 observatory levels (that you are taken to out of order, by the way -- 2nd level first), roller coaster, all the outdoor area surrounding the Tower. The upper level was a little disappointing - the windows are very tiny and it seems like the "gas seal" has been lost between layers of windows because they are not clear to look out from.
