I'm not that great with heights, but this is a spectacular view of Shanghai. Head through the hotel and up to the 92nd Floor where you can sit by the bar and look directly onto the river / Bund area. I would recommend going at night, as the lights really add a bit of life to the skyline - just... More

The view from the 100th floor of SWFC is spectacular and is a MUST if the weather is clear. As many other reviewers have noted, do not bother if it's cloudy or smoggy. On a clear day, the view is awesome and one not to be missed if you're in Shanghai. Although pricey, it's worth it to check out when... More

Loved the fact you could see the whole city. All the different lighting was effective. Easy to get to in a taxi.

It's a tall building with good location. And there are a lot of windows so you can see out. That's about it for 180 RMB / each. The city model is pretty cool, the gift shop not so much. A good one timer. When the new building opens next door, I would check that out instead.

Its 180 RMB to get the whole experience. First you are taken through a little history of the building and Shanghai and you come to this room with a model of the whole city. What was amazing about that was the lighting was adjusted according to the time of day, so you can stand and watch for about 3 minutes... More

Very cool elevator- extremely fast, but not scary. It claims to be the highest observation deck on the world. It is a pretty cool view.

You need to make sure you go on a clear day to ensure you don't get to the top and only see clouds of smog. But on one of the few clear blue sky days that Shanghai gets, it is worth the wait. I've been up on a not-so-clear day as well, and it's still pretty impressive. You usually can... More

I love this place. There is a lot of places to crash and have a lunch, basically on the ground floors. As for the Observation desk, yes, this is very cool, but, if you want to save money find the way to get to the hotel lobby in floor 87. it's a bit lower, but free ). Never go up... More
