Oriental Pearl Tower

At a height of 468 meters (1,535 feet), the Oriental Pearl TV Tower is the world's sixth tallest and possibly one of its most unique. Set on the banks of the Huangpu River, this stunning landmark is an intriguing silhouette of magnanimous spheres balanced on slender columns that soar high above the city streets. Each of the three largest spheres feature an observation deck that grants panoramic views of Shanghai from varying heights, while the glass-bottomed walkway promises to thrill. The Oriental Pearl TV Tower also houses shops, entertainment venues and a hotel as well as the Revolving Restaurant and the Municipal History Museum. Often likened to pearls on a string, this iconic landmark adorns Shanghai's glittering city skyline like a radiant jewel of spectacular proportions.

Plaza 66

Crane your neck to marvel at the second tallest building in Shanghai, the tallest in Jing An District and a major tourist hotspot. 945 feet tall, the magnificent structure also hosts a massive shopping center, housing some of the biggest brand names in clothing, fashion, electronics, furnishing, gifts and every imaginable household appliance. With prices as high as the structure that houses them, it's no wonder that most tourists stick to window shopping in here!

Confucian Temple of Shanghai

Wen Miao Temple was constructed before the establishment of Shanghai in 1267. It once served as the most esteemed center for those interested in learning the texts of the Great Teacher, Confucius. However, through the centuries it has faced many tribulations. Recently renovated, this sacred space is steeped in history and retains many of the characteristics of the Yuan Dynasty during which it was built. The old book market is one of the site's most frequented attractions and stocks plenty of periodicals and vintage magazines. The temple grounds host the highly-acclaimed Shanghai Confucius Temple Fair annually at the end of the year. This is a serene location for some soul searching or simply to get away from the frenzy of the old town.

The Bund

A concrete riverfront walkway that is built around a bend on the Huangpu River, the iconic Bund is dotted with a collection of Shanghai's most monumental landmarks. A labyrinth of nearly 52 buildings of varying shapes, sizes and architectural styles – from Romanesque Revival and Baroque, to Neoclassical and Art Deco – guards the riverfront area from the rest of the city, almost like an open-air repository of structures woven together by the forces of history, culture and commerce. Influenced by the brief colonial era that settled over Shanghai before it became a trading port in 1846, behind the buildings' facade existed a slew of trading houses, banks and even consulates. Some of the most prominent buildings that line the picturesque riverfront include the HSBC Building, which once housed the Shanghai headquarters of the eponymous bank, the Russo-Chinese Bank Building, the Asia Building, the Bank of China building, and the Gutzlaff Signal Tower. While some buildings serve an official purpose even today, some others form cultural and retail hubs in this commercial city.

Shanghai Tower

Standing tall at a height of 632 meters (2073 feet), the impressive Shanghai Tower is one of the finest architectural landmarks of Shanghai's Pu Dong District. This towering structure was built to the designs of noted American design firm, Gensler, while a conglomerate of several Chinese companies co-owns it. With 128 floors that occupy a massive area of 380,000 square meters (4,090,000 square feet), it stands in the same league as the Jin Mao Tower and Shanghai World Financial Center. Its unique cylindrical design allows the building to operate in an energy-efficient manner that promotes sustainability. A number of leisure, retail and office establishments occupy the premises of Shanghai Tower. The tower was awarded the Tien-yow Jeme Civil Engineering Prize in the year 2018.
