From here you can get some amazing views of the bund area. I went here on a day alone but still enjoyed it. There were lots of people about so was quite busy but any queue went down quite quickly.

We had mixed experiences here. We did the 'crazy photo' activity as we waited but they lost our photo so a big lost sale for them. The food in the revolving restaurant was nice but not exciting. The view was great. The crowds were crushing in spaces. Still a must do I think.

If you want a panoramic view of Shanghai, this is not the best place, but do get close to it, is a must see landmark in Shanghai. Look for the tallest building (you'll see it), and get to the Hyatt hotel inside, get to the bar and have a drink, it will be an expensive one, but you'll have the... More

2 hrs of fun sightseeing and enjoyment. Highly recommended in Shanghai. Very close to the Shanghai international convention centre. Enjoyed with friends. Great looking Shanghai from the top.

Visited on a Friday and the crowd wasn't that much. You can really go to all the floors at your luxury. I don't know the picture though if you went on a Saturday or Sunday. The view deck is the typical 360 view of the entire city through large glass panels. There are small food stalls and souvenir shops scattered... More

It has great views. If you pay the higher price 220 Yuan each you get to go to the top and you also have the much shorter line. This is important as the other line (180 Yuan) was more than an hour wait. By far the best feature of this trip is on the middle level where they have a... More

There is a wax musuem on the 1st floor of the TV tower which tells the story of Shanghai old time. It is wort the time to take the tour if you are interested in Chinese history.

The Oriental Pearl TV and Radio Tower was completed in 1994 and, at 1535ft was the tallest structure in China until 2007. It offers an unsurpassed view of the area on a clear day and a night visit is highly recommended as the light show from the current taller 3 nearby buildings is spectacular. The tower offers great views of... More

This place has great views over the city and a fun glass floor to walk on. However, when we went we had to queue for about 3 hours in total, in maybe 8 different lines. Every level had a queue to get up to the next one and then -- even more frustratingly -- a queue to get down again.... More
