Oriental Pearl Tower

oriental pearl towerShanghai Oriental Pearl TV Tower is 468 meters high and it is the first highest in Asia and the third highest in the world. The tower consists of 15 spheres of different size at different sizes at different levels creating an artistic conception of “large and small pearls dropping onto a jade plate”. It has become a symbolic architecture and a favorable spot for tourists in Shanghai.

Visitors can travel up and down the tower in double-decker elevators that can hold up to fifty people at the rate of seven meters per second. Once you reach your destination, you will be amazed at the variety of activities available as the various spheres and columns actually house places of interest, commerce, and recreation.

The inner tower is a recreational palace, while the Shanghai Municipal History Museum is located in the tower's pedestal. The large lower sphere has a futuristic space city and a fabulous sightseeing hall. From here, on a clear day a visitor can see all the way to the Yangtze River.

The base of the tower is home to a science fantasy city. The five smaller spheres are a hotel that contains twenty-five elegant rooms and lounges. The pearl at the very top of the tower contains shops, restaurants, (including a rotating restaurant) and a sightseeing floor.
