There are many distinctive edifies in Pudong but this has to be one of the most distinguished. Wonderful to view at any time, it is particularly spectacular at night when illuminated with ever changing striations of colourful lighting. As with other developments in China the design has echoes of traditional symbolism. The two largest spheres suggest dragons playing with pearls... More

Cool opportunity to climb a historic tower. Felt beyond commercial, lots of upsells once you had already paid for the admission. Expensive admission to go to the top of the tower (the Space Capsule), and that was extremely lame. Just another level that was sparesely decorated to make you feel like you're in a "space capsule". Not worth the cost.... More

Visited there with some business relation, very modern, huge building, went up with a very quick lift, had a very big lunch with all kinds of food in International style with very special deserts as cakes and ice cream. Very nice area to be. Near the tower there many other high buildings with very special architecture. Lunch was very high... More

Restaurant is also good value with its price with enough choices. But I was not happy from this fact in the rush hour they allocate strangers in the same... More

Whether you like the looks of Oriental Pearl Tower or not... the views from the platforms are very nice. Especially at night the Bund on one side and the modern skyscrapers of Pudong on the other offer a very nice experience. Especially the glass floor viewing platform allows some spectacular pictures...

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.

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.

We didn't go inside the building but we took lots of photos at different times of the day. Very pretty when lit up at night.

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 took us to the main observation floor and the glass floored are one level down. You can stand on the glass and look down 1000 feet? ! Excellent little coffee shop... More

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 spent almost an hour getting into the lift before getting onto the observation floor, which has a view of shanghai. From there, you can... More
