Dongfang Mingzhu is indeed one of the best attractions for you to enjoy seeing almost the whole of Shanghai. You must go up to the scenery view level if you visit this attraction. Even if you stand nearby the tower, you still have the feeling of how giant and attractive the tower is. So if you visit Shanghai for leisure... More

Truely its the Mark of Shanghai City.... Worth visiting but be prepared for long queues for tickets and never ending even longer queues for finally getting into elevator which will take you into the skies...... You will find artificial clouds/smoke everywhere at the top being emanated from the entry point of the tower.... Like every other Shanghai attraction Night Lightening... More

quite a long queue for the lifts but very well organised and it doesn't take long, once up you have a fantastic view over shanghai, you can also go down a floor and walk on the glass floor around the tower if you are daring enough which i was not

The lineup to get into the tower took us almost 3 hours - and that was during the week not even the weekend. By the time we got to the top we couldn't see anything because it was so smoggy. The entire process in the tower from start to finish was about 5 hours. I recommend going just to say... More

Nice place to visit.. Fantastic view at night - with fog starting to cover the tall Oriental Pearl.. Nice and huge mall nearby.. Spend time at the Oriental Pearl, shop and have dinner at Mall.

We visited the Pearl Tower as part of our tour. I suggest going on the weekdays and not weekends as the line was long for a Saturday. We enjoyed the glass bottom floor the most. The kids enjoyed pretending to fly over the city. Didn't do the arcade or restaurant as it was very busy inside. Mostly touristy stuff and... More

It is great to See from the inside and outside. Beware of ticket queue and try to book upfront. Be aware that the weather is often hazy and rainy, so the view is often limited. View is best in month after july.

A must visit place if you are ever in shanghai. The sights are just amazing & especially huangpu river all around. It is not all. The observatory with the glass floor is really cool. The "space capsule" is a waste of time and money.
