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

I've been there in a cloudy day but it was possible to see the panorama quite well. If you can choose and you are in Shanghai for more than a week-end better go on it with clear sky. From the top it's possible to see all the bund panorama and the visit is quite interesting for all the information and... More

I was not so impressed by the observatory, besides the fact that this is the tallest in Shanghai and it is supposed to have a glass floor. First of all, they offer to take you to the 94th floor or 100th floor. I thought that those 6 floors were not worth the extra 30 yuan, but when we got to... More

The glass walls of the skyscrapers are simply beautiful and welcoming reflecting light and the surrounding environment with grace.

This was not part of the itinerary for our tour but our tour guide suggested we go and are we glad we did - what an experience! The approach to the elevators and the ride on the elevators has a futuristic feel. You travel through windowless hallways, dark and blank walls to enter the elevator. An automated voice and strobe...

There's a helpful sign near the ticket window regarding visibility from the top that I'd recommend you trust. We visited on a day that had a "sad face," and literally couldn't see out the windows. That said, the center was very informative with videos and a great diorama of Shanghai. I would love to visit again on a "happy face"... More

Skywalk and elevator was great. Very space age in the elevator. Good info at ground level before the elevator and reasonably priced.

I followed the advice in my Lonely Planet guidebook and dismissed the expensive viewing platform and found the entrance to the Hyatt Park Hotel. This is quite difficult to find, and rather intimidating. Be strong and persevere! The lift whisks you up to the bar on the 91st floor. This is now the 'highest bar in the world' (for now!)... More

Yeah, that's about it. I've been up most of the tallest buildings in the world, but SWFC has them all beat for the actual view. The observation deck is the highest of any, and the view from up there commands all of the magnificent new Pudong construction as well as the Huangpu Creek and the classic Bund on the opposite...
