This really is a nice place to visit if you enjoy tall lookouts. Viewing area is at 474 meters above the street level which gives you a nice view over the city in pretty much all directions. Taking elevator is kinda fun - you'll see when you get inside. Word of advice - you can take it only on the... More

If you like tall buildings and as I do seek them out when you are overseas then this one will not disappoint, the building has a great modern style and is great to look at up close. The lift to the observatory is an experience in itself, but no "spoilers" you will have to ride it for yourself. The view... More

Our time through the Shanghai, the bottle opener, shanghai was excellent with our 7 year old son. Avril from China odyssey was our guide and was excellent. The best activity was visiting a locals home and cooking a meal.

Yu can't be afraid of heights or fast elevators to go here. Great views of the whole region from up that high. Amazing place. I would go again. Price was ok.

Oh yes... these buildings are sky high. Impressive structures that reach into the sky. Best done on a clear day. Do allow for some voltaren to take care of your sore neck after a days walking around in this forest of tall buildings!

We went in an evening around 9 PM. Not many people and no line up for lifts. From the 100th floor great view of the city building & lights. Worth the trip.

It is quite expensive, so be careful, when you go up there and they warn you it might be really cloudy and misty. We did it anyway as we just had few days in Shanghai. Inside you have an exhibition about the city developement and the Bund - really interesting.

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...
