Avoid the tour - get in free

Go to the bar on floor 91 - avoid the entrance fees and get the same amazing view for just the price of a beer!

I was in Shanghai for a business trip and we stayed at the Grant Hyatt hotel in the Jin Mao Tower (I stayed on 66th floor). Right across the street was the Observatory at the Shanghai World Financial Center. We timed it perfectly (around 2pm) as there was pretty much no one in line (I heard it can take 30+... More

Amazing building and not for the faint of heart or those with high anxiety. The wait to get in when I went there was about 15 minutes.

Rude the lift to the top and the views are fantastic. The lift is so fast you are there before you know it. Look down and see the river being used to traffic goods all over China.

If you wanna get high then the Shanghai world financial centre is the place to go. Me and my friends were gonna clean our rooms but then we got high. Be sure to get a ticket to the top floor as this is one of the few man made structures that is #BigEnoughToSeeSpaceFrom
