Pretty good day and night :) the sky walk/clear floor is great. There is even a space themed floor which is different.

This is the most visited place in Shanghai according to me. But visited only when the sky is clear for crystal clear view of the city.

reasonably priced attraction, with some great views of Shanghai on a clear day, but even in the clouds can be fun, with several internal attractions that great for the younger folk. the glass floored viewing platform at 250m is quite stomach churning for some visitors!

If you are in Shanhai for the first time, this is a must-do. The tower is not as high as say Burj Khalifa or anything but gives a great 360 view of the city and it is a beautiful experience. A lot of people -...More

Restaurant was terrible, the staff were rude and lines were too long. We paid a lot for dinner and we were treated like refugees. We waited for so long food that we ended up at McDonalds. Waste of money

My girlfriend and I spent a wonderful evening in the Oriental Pearl Tower. 10 over 10 view of Shanghai, good buffet dinner. Nice walk on the glass at 250 meters over the sea level. Just for brave people.

Second floor is with the transparent floors, worth the money I guess. Do not fall into the trap "pay more - better" in this situation it's definitely not the case! Windows on the third floor are super small and the worst waiting line of my...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.

You do not need to buy online. CAn do it when you get there. Easy. No need to buy the upper part of the tower. Yes the glass walk is included as part of the ticket. Enjoy

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
