“Enjoyable on a clear day”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

I've been here several times and it is a good way to see the skyline, though it is no longer the tallest point in Shanghai. They sell different types of tickets for the tower...for the full experience, get the ticket that includes the glass floor level for unique views of the city. The professional photos they take are great souvenirs! The all inclusive ticket also includes a pass to the Shanghai history museum which was very interesting.

“Great view of Shanghai”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

I think it's worth going up to Oriental Pearl Tower to see Shanghai. I recommend you go here at night (after dark) to enjoy beautiful city lights of shanghai. It's not expensive compare to other cities in US or Asia so I highly recommend you go here and spend some time to enjoy the view.

“Make sure to visit the second level down”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Make sure to visit the second level down and go out on the glass floor. It's an stange feeling but really neat experience. Also don't miss the museum on the bottom floor. It's easy to miss if you don't know about it. It's well worth walking through.

“Fun to do once - But pricey”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We visited this the first week we moved to Shanghai! The tickets are a bit pricey. Make sure you visit on a clear day. If you do not like a long crowded elevator ride - this may not be a good fit for you. Also the observation decks are very crowded and lots of pushing. The view is magnificent!

“Really busy”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

if you don't like heights, don't go. Really compact> great view and helpful people. When you pay for the ride, you are not paying for everything. Other areas require more fares.
