Overpriced (for China), but if you have the time it's a good way to see the city.

Avoid the gift shops, they are ridiculously inflated over street prices.

It was super crowded (even though it was a very cloudy day); I think it took us 2 hours to get up and 1,5 to get down again. For 80RMB you get to go to the first and second "pearl". The second is pretty cool, nice panorama view on Shanghai. There's is also a glass observatory platform which is pretty fun to walk on. Try to look down and run 10-15meters :)

When you convert the cost of admission to this tower, you are left gaping but then China is very expensive for international tourists. Anyways, the experience to walk on the glass and get the 360 degree view and some amazing photos if the weather is on your side is worth it.

We're ever you are in Shanghai you can see this iconic building. Situated on the Bund side of Shanghai catch the local ferry for 2 Rmb each way across the Huangpu River. A must visit if you can avoid weekends a good idea as it appears much busier on these days and too watch the team cleaning the supports hanging is amazing. Please see photos.
