As we are all waiting for the Shanghai tower (highest building in Shanghai since exterior constructions finished in early 2015) to open its gates to the people and tourists of Shanghai, the World Financial Center remains the highest place to get a good view of Shanghai. But, if you consider going there (also valid for other skyscrapers in China), please... More

Whilst the IFC viewing gallery is great something better is the sky bar on the 87th floor of the Park Hyatt Hotel. Superb views across the city and 4 drinks at this bar is cheaper than a trip to the IFC viewing gallery. Worth a go....

The amazing tower on the Pudong side is definitely something you should visit during the stay in Shanghai. The view from the top is absolutely breathtaking and a once-in-a-lifetime experience. During the day you have a beautiful view of the city but during the night you see the city in its lights which makes it all the more beautiful.

The World financial centre is amazing, I went there in december, we visited the top of the skyscraper. It was around 8-9 o'clock so we thought that it'd be closed but it was opened. The ticket's price was 110 yuan (no student discount). When you enter the building a guide will show you a small plastic model of the whole... More

As a family of four travelling for six months, we found the prices to the observatory very expensive, but we were rewarded with the most incredible views over Shanghai. We went around dusk so we're able to see the city with and without night lights. Highly recommend as a treat if you've never been up to a high vantage point... More

This was your typical trip up an elevator to see the view of the city, whic was pretty spectacular. It was expensive for a view of the city. $60USD for two. The wait was long, but it was well organized.

Currently highest viewing platform in Shanghai until next door Shanghai Tower opens. Excellent views to Pudong side from three different levels, however compared to also next door Jin Mao no 360 degrees view and for example very limited view to the new Shanghai Tower. Fairly expensive experience but still recommend getting the 180 RMB ticket for all three levels.

Staying in Lujiazui

Neighborhood Profile
Lujiazui
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
