The Pearl of the Orient
The Oriental Pearl Tower next to the Huangpu river in Pudong, Shanghai. River boats covered with brightly colored lights go up and down the river and night making for great viewing with a nice hot cup of coffee. This was taken from the lobby of the Shanghai Grand Hyatt in the Jin Mao Tower. Until 2007 it was the tallest building in China and the fifth tallest in the world. The Shanghai Grand Hyatt occupies floors 53 (lobby) to 87 (penthouse). Hats off to Jian for IDing the tower and Dave Ross for IDing where this photo was taken from!
