Worth visiting this iconic location

Despite steep entry fees (180-220 RMB) its worth visiting this iconic tower; especially the glass floor; its really a great thrilling experience walking through the glass floor.

This is a good attraction. Before buying one can check tour bus stands for discounted price. For me going to mid floor was enough, top floor didn't impress us.

We took the tourist tunnel rail under the Huangpu River to the Pudong area and walked to the Pearl Tower, and chose the intermediate optio on the elevator.

This tower is neither the tallest building in shanghai nor the most interesting, but it does give an excellent view of the river. It is especially nice during night. The real problem is the queue.

I went up alone in the evening, because I love towers. What can I say haha! It offers great views, especially at night. It is a little expensive ... the Space Pod had dirty windows so the photos aren't great from up there. But the main viewing area was great. Very busy!

Great to see this iconic tower that is Shanghai. We didn't go up the tower as there are so many other options, but it was great to see as we wandered the city

visiting in November there weren't any crowds, in fact we walked straight in without having to queue a speedy lift to the viewing platform had us awe inspired by the 360 city scape with the camera snapping continuously walking out onto the glass bottom platform is a must
