Oriental Pearl Tower (Dongfang Mingzhu) is amazing tower . The views you get from the top are magnificent and there is a glass floor where you stand and see the city beneath your legs. During evening the tower is colorful and amazing.

A visit to Shanghai is incomplete without going to the top of the Oriental Pearl Tower. It provides a 360 degree panaromic view of the city of shanghai

We enjoyed visiting this building, especially the shanghai history museum inside. The level with the glass floor is very cool and the views are incredible. But like most tourist destinations in China, it’s incredibly crowded.

Beautiful view and it has the glass bottom so that you can see below you. The wait was 2 hours we got there about 6 or 6:30 so be prepared but worth it!

Nice to have said I have been up but that's it. We went during the night but could hardly see through the scratched/smudged up glass windows and floor. Very crowded and not very clean at all. Would suggest visit either of the other towers. The...More

Good to look around Shanghai city, not the tallest, but definitely fun. Have your picture taken sitting on the clear floor showing the view below.

No need to book. Best time depends on weather, whether there is visibility or not and if you like day or night. Night is magic in Shanghai but you don't need to be high to enjoy the night skyline.

Sunday is like any other day in China. If you go between 10:00 and 16:00 you are likely to be okay, just about anywhere! TripAdvisor does have in English the information you need. I do not remember the cost, but I did go... More
