Oriental Pearl TV Tower Shanghai

东方明珠塔

The Oriental Pearl TV Tower in the Pudong financial district of Shanghai is one of this port city's most famous architectural icons.

Though now dwarfed by such monsters as the Shanghai Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Center, the Oriental Pearl TV Tower was the tallest building in China from 1994-2007.

The Oriental Pearl TV Tower is also host to a number of restaurants, including a revolving restaurant at 267m, exhibition space and shops. The structure is illuminated at night by LED.
