The Pearl Tower Shanghai’s Icon Upclose (Getting High in Shanghai Series 6)

The Pearl Tower 
Shanghai’s Icon Upclose
(Getting High in Shanghai Series 6

When alighted from the Lujizui Metro,
the Oriental Pearl Tower was the very
first structure that caught our eyes-


…and we paused to take photos with  
the iconic tower in the background.


The Oriental Pearl Radio & Television Tower  located at 
the fas  growing new center of  Pudong It was built 1991 and 
completed in 1994, and was the tallest structure in China until it
was surpassed by the Shanghai World Financial Center in 2007.


The tower is supported by three enormous columns,


… had a total of 11 spheres with two largest 
spheres aligned along the length of the tower,


According to most accounts, the tower has fifteen observatory levels.
with the highest post at 1148 feet and known as the Space Module.


There is a revolving restaurant, exhibition facilities, a shopping center
and even a hotel called the Space Hotel between the two large spheres.


The Oriental Pearl Radio & Television Tower is probably
the most recognizable structure that symbolizes Shanghai.
