Setting off from Shanghai port, you’ll be picked up by your private guide and driver and then transferred to the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. Standing at 468m in height, Oriental Pearl is the tallest TV tower in Asia and the third tallest one in the world. From its observatory, view the whole Shanghai, and see the image of ‘twin dragons playing with pearls’, formed by the Yangpu Bridge in the northeast and the Nanpu Bridge in the southwest.
