The best time to see Lùjiāzuǐ’s modern architecture is during late afternoon or at twilight/early evening, especially during summer (the wide Pǔdōng roads make the sun merciless). Sky-high views from observation decks, bars and restaurants allow you to contrast day, dusk and evening views. Walk around the elevated walkway by the Oriental Pearl TV Tower for show-stopping evening visuals.
