东方明珠，从小听到大，终于有机会来了这个号称上海乃至全中国的地标。交通方便，地铁直达，人还不是很多。有小姐姐指示乘坐电梯，非常高大上啊。对于上海的景色一览无遗，整个浦东，陆家嘴。玻璃球我不敢去，有些恐高。下次一定带家人来 more »Oriental Pearl, from childhood to hear big, finally had the opportunity to come to this landmark known as Shanghai and even the whole of China. Convenient transportation, direct subway, people are not a lot. There is a little sister instructed to take the elevator, very tall on AH. For the scenery of Shanghai panoramic, the whole of Pudong, Lujiazui. Glass ball I dare not go, some fear high. Be sure to bring your family next time.
It is one of the most iconic sites of Shanghai and so easily recognizable as one of the staples of China, I went in the summer and the view was amazing, nothing like anything you’ve ever seen. The chance to go on one of these skyscrapers and see the view of one of the most industrialized cites in the world from above is an unmissable experience. There was also a temporary exhibition of fish was an unexpected favorite part of trip which was a very moving metaphor for genetic modification and human influence on nature.
A must go tourist place for experiencing a walk on glass at 350 meters height. It's a nice experience. The whole area is wonderful The surrounding buildings, the circled walkway to cross the road, escalators in open . The view from top is nice. Being at this place is a nice experience.
