I actually visited the Oriental Pearl tower a couple of weeks ago, but decided to share it this week in the midst of heavy rains.
I was pretty lucky to have a clear day when I went to the top of the pearl tower; the view was lovely. The sun setting over the city was relaxing and totally worth seeing.
Make sure you choos a relatively clear day to visit the pearl tower to enjoy the spectacular views. I’d also highly recommend coinciding your visit to watch the sunset and see the lights turn on!
