Oriental Pearl TV Tower Jun 07, 2008
I bought a train package(i.e USD16,RMB135),which includes the round trip train tkt crossing the Huangpu river,RMB100 worth entrance fee tkt to the tower.however,I found that there are actually few types of tkts to the tower offered at the tower entrance.1/the cheapest tkt is RMB100.(that's what i got)You may go up to the 1st sightseeing level of the tower and free entry to the museum at the bottom of the tower.2/tkt costs ard RMB150.other than the 1st sightseeing level n the museum,you could go up to the 2nd ball of the tower,which is the top level.Acconding to the description of the leaflets,it's a spaceship like model.I ain't too sure what kind of satisfaction you may get from it.3/tkt costs ard RMB260 per person for having either lunch or dinner up to their 360 revolving restaurant.it cost there.(I did't try it.food usually not good in any tourist landmarks,in my opinion)

Landmark of Shanghai Aug 12, 2008
The Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower is 468m high. It's the tallest TV tower in Asia as well as the most famous. It's one of the landmarks of the new Shanghai. From the tower you can see the entire Bund on the other side of the river. That was the centre of Shanghai during the western dominance (1842-1941).

The design of the Oriental Pearl Tower is unique in the world. The tower has been inextricably bound up with Shanghai. So you haven't been in Shanghai, if you don't visit the Oriental Pearl Tower!

The Shanghai History Museum is located at the bottom of the Oriental Pearl Tower. That is also one of the Things To Do. Admission is included in the admission fee.

The Oriental Pearl Tower Mar 12, 2007
I really loved standing at The Bund of Shanghai and looking at the spectacular buildings towards the tip of Lujiazui in the Pudong district on the opposite side of Huangpu River. To one of the most remarkable building was The Oriental Pearl Tower, it looks like it is taken out of concept; as from a science fiction movie.

The TV tower was designed by Jiang Huan Cheng of the Shanghai Modern Architectural Design Co. Ltd and the construction began in 1991 and the tower was completed in 1995. The Oriental Pearl Tower belongs to the World Federation of Great Towers.

With a height of 468 m, it is one of the tallest completed towers in Asia. It was also the tallest structure in China from 1994-2007, when it was surpassed by the Shanghai World Financial Center.

When I visited it I had the good fortune of good weather and very few people
