  View of the tower from the Bund
by aramat

The excellent exhibition in the basement of the Oriental Pearl Tower tells the story of Shanghai, with lifesize replicas of buildings, street scenes and wax figures. I think it's worth to pay for the autoguide, but there is quite a lot of written information available as well (in Chinese and English). I only planned to stay for about an hour, but it took me more than three hours to see everything, and I would have stayed longer happily, if I had more time to see the city.

Address: Oriental Pearl Tower
Directions: Pudong
