From this "bottle opener"-shaped building one actually looks down on the pearl tower. The view is amazing and I recommed arriving a good hour before sunset. While the elevator up is very quick there is a little bit of process getting tickets, checking tickets and going through a mandatory introductory film for 5-10 minutes. The view of the river and...

I have been visiting this building several times with friends and business colleagues visiting Shanghai. On a clear day you can see very far ... 360 degrees. Make sure you go up there about one hour before it get's dark. Hence, you will enjoy the view during day time and at night. The HYATT Hotel is in the building (if... More

Go to the Hotel Hyatt, enjoy a good Coffee middays or a nice red vine in the evening. You will have one of the nicest views over Shanghai in an awesome environment!

Went up today for the experience, 180RMB which isn't cheap, but a very high view of 180degrees of nearby Shanghai, including the Bund, but still very hazy. I did think the observation deck would have windows at either end of the building to allow virtually an all-around view but you could only look out either side. Could barely see the... More

We had dinner in the Hyatt restaurant with the only downside being that while sitting at the table we were a bit too far from the windows, but rest assured the view is nothing short of spectacular!

This is a very, very expensive tower to go to the top of. And they don't do it right. I have some experience paying lots of money to go to the top of towers. Recently I visited the Taipei 101. There's an awesome mall with food and shopping at the bottom. It's connected to a metro station. There is a... More

Is worth the price you need to pay for it. You will be not disappointed. Best to go at the evening, you can enjoy... More

Can't miss this place when you are in Shanghai, and if your budget allows, book a stay at the wonderful Park Hyatt which is located in the building itself. If you are lucky enough to come on a clear day, you should be lucky to have great views of the bund, etc. Otherwise, you might be looking at a whole... More

On a good day you get the best view of Shanghai including the Bond, the city centre and the TV tower. It is not cheap, but it is worth it and something you ought to do if you are in Shanghai for the first time.
