This building is very amazing to view from the inside and the outside. The views from the top floor make Shanghai seem like another world. I recommend that you view it at night.

The height of this building and the view from top of 100 floors is truly unique. Though you have to be really fortunate to have a clear sunny sky for real good photos, but view outside with naked eyes is very good.

If you're afraid of heights then this might be a bit challenging for you. The 100th floor is very very high up but it feels safe so you just have to take it slow and get used to the idea! Great view, it's amazing to see all the building that you thought were too high right from the top. The... More

There is a great view of the city from the 100 floor. Next year there will be an even taller building in Shanghai.

One of the most interesting tours I have done in my 40+ years of travel. Dvir is an outstanding guide and the sites visited were both interesting and poignant

100 floors up - amazing views and totally worth the money once inside. Totally freaked out and would do it again next time.

Went here at the evening. Very nice view of Shanghai though it was pretty crowded. We find it hard to see the view with all those people blocking our view.

The ride to the top floor was wonderfully quick and scary. The view from the top though was quite underwhelming, especially given the smog in the air and the thick glass that actually causes a reflection in your images unless you have a special lens. Plus it was terribly crowded, even though it was not the peak tourist season.

Visit the bar on floor 91 for great views across the city and the Bund. Beware the bar prices though!

Absolute must see when in Shanghai! We went to the 97th floor where there's a coffee shop & viewing atrium. There's a small display before getting to the lifts that shows Shanghai as a scaled down City. The lift was an unbelievable experience, climbing the floors at a crazy speed, be prepared for your ears to pop! The view is... More
