  Oriental Pearl Tower at night

 

China

In the evening, when the city of Shanghai lights up, the 468 meter tall Oriental Pearl Tower takes centre stage in the Pudong Skyline. Perhaps not as impressive in the daytime (fig.), at night this landmark is brightly lit in different LED sequences, putting on a show pf lights which is an attraction in its own right.

 

Though it is situated among several other landmark buildings on the eastern bank of the Huangpu River, this TV Tower with its kaleidoscopic effects remains the eye-catcher of Pudong.
