This is an amazing place to visit, well worth the cost, my family and I made it up twice with no queues to endure! One time was memorably on Chinese New Years Eve 2011 when we were able to watch fireworks go off across the city. Surprisingly there were only a handful of other tourists with us and typically we...

I was told that I could go to SWFC for high tea with a view so I decided to give it a go. Upon arriving, I had trouble finding the right entrace to get to the top. I ended up at the restaurant area, not realizing that there was a seperate entrance to go all the way up. I also... More

I love visiting tall buildings, so this one was definitely on my list and I was not disappointed. It started out by standing in line to get tickets (I couldn’t find a way to book online). I took the tickets for all three floors (RMB 180) and it was definitely worth it. The 100th floor houses the sky bridge, and... More

Best to wait for a clear day to visit, but if no choice, I'd recommend skipping the high cost of the ticket to the top (with a glass-sky walk) and head to the 100 Century Avenue bar for a cocktail and a stunning view of the city. By not buying a ticket, you can have two classic cocktails in a... More

Everything great. Uncomparable experience at the height of Shanghai sky. The visit is very well organized and you have enough time to take picture, read the descriptions and live the height. Try also the toilets, they will positively surprise you.

The shanghai world financial centre (bottle opener) is a stunning and impressive structure both in its design and height. I made the mistake of visiting on a day with lots of cloud and bad smog so could only make out the odd detail in between the cloud surrounding the tower.

View from this tower is amazing, but only if the sky is clear and there is no fog. Is best to go arround 6 PM when you can see the city by day, dusk and night. If it is cloudy and foggy, I do not recommend that you go on the top because there is a possibility that you will... More

Shanghai was very interesting the guide knew so much spoke very good English if I went to China again I would use them again and I would like to recommend SNA tours to everyone. The price... More
