    Incredible
    Incredible infrastructure. Beautiful lightning I was very impressed how high it is. I wasn't a cloudy day I couldn't see the top at the beginning but then did they clear up and wow. Shanghai must be so proud of that infrastructure. I was disappointed though there is no clear instructions in English how to get inside. I was lost and I didn't have the chance to go inside

    Loved this tower with great views. Well organised
    Really enjoyed going up early around 9am and enjoying the views on the 2 levels. Great light show highlighting the future of Shanghai. We did this tower as well and Shanghai Tower. Enjoyed them both and glad I did them both. 100% recommend

    Oriental Pearl Tower, Shanghai
    I developed courage here! I got to walk in the glass floors and look down! Very nice place to visit. Paid admission also but worth it. Also, always buy premium to avoid the long queue

    Get a unique perspective of the city
    This is undeniably one of the most charming spots to visit in Shanghai. While it may not boast the title of the tallest building in the city, it certainly holds its own appeal. The architecture is stunning, and the panoramic views are truly breathtaking. The highlight for many visitors is the glass-bottom viewing point, offering a unique perspective of the cityscape below. Like many other attractions, Wi-Fi is available here, although we encountered difficulty with the OTP due to the language barrier.

The pearl tower is and always will be, my favourite cute building in Shanghai. Avoid to visit him on Chinese holidays. But if you don’t mind long waiting lines, go for it

Sometimes the Oriental Pearl Tower means Shanghai. I saw it the first time on a book cover when I studied in middle school.
You can climb up to the top and watch Shanghai at night.

This is a pretty cool attraction. It lights up at night and it's pretty cool. I went at dusk so I was able to get a good daytime view followed by a night time view as well. I was too scared to go on the transparency deck with the glass. I just don't know how people do it! Hahaha! Definitely recommend going in for an hour or so! You need to show your passport to get inside and be prepared for lot of QR code scanning!

Well..first of all there is a saying that the local never go to the Oriental Pearl Tower because this is just for tourists.But the good thing about this tower is that u can see have an bird view of the whole Shanghai (both Pudong and Puxi) in the top floor.Glass floor is applied in the top floor.
However there is not any other thing that is worth spending time on.
What i recommand is going to the Jingmao Building to have a meal in the top floor.
Same view,less money with a fairly good meal
But if u like the glass floor just try the Oriental Pearl Tower.

I took my daughter to the Pearl Tower tonight, but was turned away because my new passport didn't have a entry stamp... My daughter was very disappointed tonight.
