The Oriental Pearl Tower (468 meters/ 1,536 feet high) is one of the most important landmark buildings in Pudong, so you will enjoy 30 minutes' free time in the square around the tower to appreciate its imposing features. We do not go inside for a visit due to its crazy queuing up, which sometimes requires waiting for 1 hour or even longer, crowded and noisy! Then, you will be driven through the skyscrapers in Pudong and enjoy stopovers in Shanghai Jinmao Tower (420.5 meters/ 1,379 feet high), Shanghai World Financial Center (492 meters/ 1,614 feet high), and the highest Shanghai Tower (632 meters/ 2,073 feet high) for photo opportunities.

The narrow canals with boats make you feel like being in Chinese Venice, creating a peaceful scene. A leisurely stroll in the narrow alleys enables you to see the old residential houses and to observe the locals' livings. Taking a small wooden boat along the canal to sightsee the lesser-known gems is one of the best things to do in your 2 days Shanghai Suzhou tour.
