Pudong has many skyscrapers with observation decks to choose from. Here are the options for the most famous ones.

Oriental Pearl Tower

The best thing about this TV tower is not its height but its form, which is very odd and attractive, so our thought is that it is best to see it than to see from it. Still, a lot of people still want to climb to the second sphere. It also houses the Municipal History Museum.

Admission Fee: CNY $160.-

Jin Mao Tower

Third tallest building in Mainland China. Observation deck is located on 88th floor.

Our Recommendation

We climbed to the top of the Shanghai Tower and we strongly recommend it. How many times in your life will you be able to say you climbed to the second tallest building in the World?

The views are amazing from up there, as you can see the whole city plus all the other towers close by.

There is a perfect view of the Oriental Pearl and the Huangpu River.

We went there during the day because we wanted to spend the evening in The Bund, but the night view from up there must be spectacular as well.

Getting There

Metro Line 2 –Lujiazui Station. All the towers are close by.
