Shanghai skyline at night

Shanghai skyline at night

This view was the reason I wanted to visit Shanghai. The tall building lit up with purple lights is the Oriental Pearl Tower. The two largest spheres are around 50 metres in diameter. Opened in 1994 this tower is a symbol of Chinese architecture. The larger but further away building on the right. Lit up in yellow is the Shanghai Tower. This 632 metre tall tower is the second largest building in the world.
