I recently spent a few days in Shanghai, and I had always heard there were some observation towers I should check out. I thought one would be fine, and since the architecture of the Pearl Tower is so cool, that's where we went. It was...More

Take a look at the city (recommended between 16:30 and 18:30) - next to the ocean aquarium you will find one of the most important attractions in Shanghai, the Oriental Pearl Tower. It is the second tallest TV and radio tower in China, 468 meters...More

Scintillating light show of big city life. There is always a lot of people clamouring for pictures. I found Taco Bell bear the metro...there is also that, who doesn’t love Tacos?

We happened to be in Shanghai, and due to less time, we saw it from the Bund. Amazing and beautiful. Lightning patterns in the night make it even more charming.

The signature building in Shanghai is the Pearl. There is a 360° revolving restaurant in one of the pearls. This is a great place to take in the city and watch the sunset. Reservations are mandatory. There are three different buffet areas with many dishes...More

Awesome tower, modern symbol of Shanghai, we first viewed from the Bund in daylight (a little hazy but not too much) and then again at night, brightly illuminated. Either way it is fixed on my brain. Climb it next day - I've no head for...More

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.
