Oriental Pearl TV Tower

Introduction
The Oriental Pearl TV Tower is a TV tower in Shanghai, China. The Oriental Pearl Tower is located at the tip of Lujiazui in the Pudong district, by the side of Huangpu River, opposite The Bund of Shanghai.

It was designed by Jiang Huan Cheng of the Shanghai Modern Architectural Design Co. Ltd. Construction began in 1991 and the tower was completed in 1995. At 468 m (1,535 feet) high, it was the tallest structure in China from 1994–2007, when it was surpassed by the Shanghai World Financial Center. The Oriental Pearl Tower belongs to the World Federation of Great Towers.

Unique desiging of TV tower in Shanghai
This 468 meters (1,536 feet) high tower is the world's third tallest TV and radio tower surpassed in height only by towers in Toronto, Canada and Moscow, Russia. However, even more alluring than its height is the tower's unique architectural design that makes the Oriental Pearl TV Tower one of the most attractive places anywhere.

The design of the building said to be based on a verse of the Tang Dynasty poem Pipa Song by Bai Juyi about the wonderful sprinkling sound of a pipa instrument, like pearls, big and small falling on a jade plate (大珠小珠落玉盘). However, the designer Jiang Huancheng says that he did not have the poem in mind when designing the tower. It was the chief of the jury board who said it reminded him of that poem.

Inner beauty of the Oriental Pearl TV Tower

Inner beauty to visit
The Oriental Pearl Tower consists of three big columns, which are 9 meters in diameter, the space module, the upper sphere, the lower sphere, five small spheres, tower base and the square.

In the tower, there is a double-decker elevator, which can hold fifty people at a time, and a two-speed elevator that can run at a speed of 7 meters per second. The tower is equipped with three-dimensional lighting installation, which makes the whole tower very colorful and beautiful.

The sightseeing floor in the brilliant upper sphere is 263 meters high and 45 meters in diameter; it is the best place to get a bird's eye-view of Shanghai. When it is sunny, it makes one relaxed and happy to see the distant views of the Sheshan, the Chongming Island and the Yangtze River. In the upper sphere, there are also the Revolving Restaurant, the Disco Hall, the Piano Bar and twenty KTV rooms.

The Space module, with a height of 350 meters, towers into the sky. Inside of this is set the Sightseeing Floor, Conference Hall and Coffee Bar. They are elegant and luxurious, enjoying exceptional advantages.

In the five spheres is the space hotel with twenty comfortable suites, 140 to 230 meters above the ground. It does give people a feeling of being on a spaceship. Up here, guests can sit in sofas and enjoy a bird's-eye-view of the city aloft from the bustling life in the streets. Each ball has a suite and three standard rooms on two levels connected by a winding stairway.

The suite has a private lounge overlooking the Huangpu River and a booming Pudong. Three other rooms share two lounges facing the main section of the Bund and the city's old districts. If you decide to stay, make sure to rent a telescope at the reception desk so you can zoom in on the city's interesting spots.

The space city is in the lower spheroid of the Oriental Pearl Tower and the science fantasy city is in the base of the tower.
