Expensive $40NZ compared to an excellent meal $30NZ but well worth it, can't wait until the tower next door is open! Send a postcard from the top for about $1NZ.

We had wine and danced on the 91st floor. The view from up there is amazing. The night we were there it was ladies night. Seemed like it was "just ladies" but it was still good music and a fun night. The decor is interesting. The restroom was crazy! The seat popped up when I opened the stall door and... More

Having been to many observation decks, this is certainly the highest, and assuredly one of the best. Although I went mid morning on a Tuesday, there were still many people. But it was only a short time from joining the ticket queue that I found myself 100 floors up looking out over this spectacular city. The glass floors are an... More

If you want to get an impression of how immensely big Shanghai is, start here! The price is quite high, with 150 RMB for the upper level. But if you go up before sunset, and then wait at the Bar in the 93rd level for the lights of the city to go on, it is a pretty impressive view!

visibility was not great but it is still nice to go up to 100th floor. I can imagine that on busy days you might have to wait a while to get to the top.

Well worth the money and the queue. Great view, although felt a bit strange standing on the glass floor watching the tiny world below go by. We went on a sunny afteroon and stayed for a snack and drinks while the sun went down. Amazing day or night.

We visited this sky-scraper for half a day and it was an unexpected treat. The 58 second climb in the lift/elevator, ton the 97th(?) floor, having passed through the informative display on the construction, was a thrill. Then another lift, up to the 101st floor, where there is a 'sky-walk' across a glass floor, looking down on the tiny cars... More

Great view if you catch a smog free day. If you want to save a few $$ go just to the 94th floor. View is almost the same as you get at the top.

This is a must do in Shanghai. The height allows you to look down on the other towers, except the new one alongside. There is a glass floor and huge windows to allow for easy viewing. Try to go when the pollution is low! This is not crowded and this therefore adds to the enjoyment of the experience.

I can only recommend it! If you're lucky enough and there's a good visibility (check it in advance!), then the view from the top is simply stunning! Ticket to the 100th floor (474m) costs 150RMB (aprox. 17EUR), but it's absolutely worth it! There's also souvenir shop with possibility to buy & send a post cards . . . and apparently... More
