100th floor view

The view was amazing, looking down on all the other buildings (apart from one almost complete which is even higher).

The SWFC tower is high, no doubt. But frankly we found it a bit overrated and expensive. At CNY 170 per person it does not give the same feeling of awe that Macau tower or the Sydney tower gives from the top. If you haven't been on top of SWFC, you haven't missed anything great.

Something you definitely should do when you are visiting Shanghai. And I advise you to do it a night when the lighted skyline of Shanghai is at his best. The elevator will take you to the top of the building in less then a minute with approx. 8 m/s. (This is already an attraction itself... :) ) When I entered... More

A visit to Shanghai without being on top of the Financial Center is not complete. The view of river side with the scintillating TV tower and the city is simply magnificent.

We went up the tower on a clear night and the view over the skyline was really spectacular. It gives you a sense of just how immense Shanghai is, sprawling off in every direction for as far as the eye can see... even from 100 floors up. We preferred the experience at WFC compared to the Oriental Pearl Tower which... More

My initial intention to get a view of Shanghai had been to take advantage of one of the hotels situated in the tower buildings in Pudong (i.e. 'free'). However, the concierge at our hotel said that the view from SWFC was worth it, so off we went. At 200RMB, it is horrendously expensive - but we paid our money and... More

Easy access, in city centre. Pricey ticket but worth it. View from the 100th floor observatory is superb. Glass floors in sections make it even better. The birdseye view of the city and the river amidst the lights of the skyscrapers is a wonderful experience.

This is a beautiful modern building next to many other architecturally significant and imposing buildings. The view from the observatory is breath taking. It is located along the top tier strut, above the large hole in the top. The floors are partially glass so the sensation of height is intensified. Worth the cost which is around $US20 from memory.

Having a pot of tea while sitting in the lobby of the Park Hyatt is one of the most relaxing, inspiring and joyful things to do in Shanghai. The view is amazing and the contrast between the hustle and bustle outside, vs the supremely comfortable, ever so chic and elegant and professional service at the Park Hyatt is something that...

As expected a state of the art building with modern shops and appearance. It sits amongst other skyscrapers. Access to the viewing platform of the tower is a not to miss experience.
