The revolving restaurant in the Oriental Pearl Tower is Asia's highest one at around 267 meters. It takes around one hour to turn around and the view there is very wide. You can appreciate the beautiful scenery of the Bund 360 degrees while enjoying the buffet dinner.
The Riverside Avenue, located at the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone, is one of the best places to appreciate Shanghai at night. The Riverside Avenue is opposite the Bund across the Huangpu River, but less crowded. Besides, there are also many restaurants and cafes for you to take a break.
In Shanghai, there are also some down to earth night markets, which add a touch of fireworks to this "magic city". The night markets in Zhaozhou Road and Dingxi Road are both beloved by the locals and you could taste authentic Shanghai foods like Pan fried pork bun, wonton and fried pork chop there.
Xintiandi is a trendy area of Shanghai that has sprung up from the old Shikumen houses. There are many bars which have a historical outside but a modern and fashion interior. It's very bustling at night and is good place for young people to relax and meet friends.
