Oriental Pearl Tower
Adjust font size:

The Oriental Pearl Tower (468m) is the highest TV and radio tower in Asia and the third tallest in the world. It was built in 1994 and soon became Shanghai's landmark.


The design for the Pearl tower includes 11 spheres (or 'pearls') and three gigantic columns linking the green grass below to the blue sky above.


Six high-speed elevators take passengers up to the bubbles of the tower, for a great view over the city. The second bubble (267 m) has a nice rotating restaurant with Chinese or Western buffet. The highest observatory platform, called the space module, is even at 342m.
