  • he best way to see the magnificent Shanghai City is from above 1,536 feet or 468 meters, is from Oriental Pearl Tower. The design of this building is unique and outstanding, making it looks very attractive from anywhere. It was the tallest building in China, take over by Shanghai World Financial center in 2007. Located in Pudong New Area by the side of Huangpu River, it is the perfect location to view Shangai city from all different angles and perspectives. Oriental Pearl Tower has more than ten observatory levels; the highest one is at 351 meters; there is a revolving restaurant occupying at 267 meters. Other facilities and attractions are Museum, shops, a hotel, and futuristic of science attraction. Don't forget to test your bravery level by standing on the glass floor at observatory platform.
  • Had an absolutely amazing time here, if you find yourself in Shanghai you must visit the TV tower and the surrounding area. The views are magical and the moment you see the skyline it'll feel like it's a greenscreen, it looks so crazy in real life that the photos do not do it justice. The costs to go in are reasonable, if you're unsure I would strongly push you to spending some money to go up the tower and spending time looking around!
