After pickup from your central Shanghai hotel, travel by private, air-conditioned vehicle to the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, one of Pudong’s and Shanghai’s best-known landmarks.
Situated in the second big ‘ball’ of the tower, the Oriental Pearl Revolving Restaurant sits 862 feet (263 meters) above ground, making it Asia’s highest. The circular restaurant seats 350 and is framed by floor-to-ceiling windows commanding 360-degree city views.
On arrival, enter the soaring ticket hall, and ride the state-of-the-art elevator to the restaurant. The 40-second journey is an experience in itself, whisking you upward at 23 feet (7 meters) per second.
Leave the elevator and enjoy the first views from the restaurant as you’re shown to your table by the courteous staff. Then, savor a delicious buffet dinner. Select from a vast array of Chinese and Western dishes, enjoying them with drinks (own expense) purchased from the bar.
As you eat and relax, marvel at the bird’s-eye views, taking in the illuminated skyscrapers, floodlit monuments, and glittering waters of the River Huangpu. The restaurant turns full-circle every two hours, giving you panoramas over most of the city.
After your meal, your experience concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.
