The highest building so far you can climb on and get to. We arrived at the national holiday and didn't wait long time. We paid the full amount.

The price of my entry to the observation deck was included in my Big Bus Tour ticket for the day. Had it not been I would not have paid the 180¥ to go to the top. It was a relatively clear day when I went up so I could actually see across the city.

WFC has a nice, but very upscale mall and subway entrance at its base, but otherwise it is just another steel-reinforced skyscraper with long elevator rides. Its best feature is the view from 100 Century Avenue restaurant on its highest floors (in the Park Hyatt hotel), but unfortunately the buildlng does not wash its windows often enough to make this...

Have been to SWFC 3 or 4 times for dinner - aside from being pricey, the views are hard to beat - particularly on a (rare) clear evening to watch the sunset & all the river traffic

The view from the 100th floor is amazing. And the trip well arranged, so no hoorible ques, just short wait between stops and a short history movie before you enter. 94th floor is ok, but hey, why skip the 100th when you've got so far? There's a toursit shop and a bar at 94th floor where we watched the sunset... More

The SWFC is worth a trip, but it's a good idea to check the weather before paying RMB 180 to visit the top level - only Smog-free days will allow you to see the horizon. Having said that, the building is worth a visit: The view is stunning, the building is a technical masterpiece and and even on weekends I... More

It is very well organized, limited number of visitors at one time really makes a difference. The brief video show before the ascent is good.
