The Oriental Pearl Tower

The Oriental Pearl Tower is currently the third tallest building in Shanghai at 468 metres (after the Shanghai Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Centre). To help Melbourne people put this in perspective, the Eureka Tower is 297 metres.

This fascinating building has become a Shanghai icon since its completion in 1994. The middle pearl, at 263metres, contains the main sightseeing decks. One of these is encircled by a mentally-challenging transparent glass floor.
