A nice sunny day in Shanghai, view from the Bund on the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, as a ship slowly moves by…
The large tower is the famous Oriental Pearl Tower and is a TV and radio tower in Shanghai, China. Its location at the tip of Lujiazui in the Pudong district by the side of Huangpu River, opposite The Bund, makes it a distinct landmark in the area. The TV tower itself measures 468 meters high and is China’s second tallest TV and radio tower.
The Bund or Waitan is a waterfront area in central Shanghai.
