Couple weekend

Spectacular and in the evening the views are spectacular even if it is not very clear. A must see in Shanghai. A bit of a challenge when afraid of heights.

I am typically not much for going up in buildings to look at other buildings, but this was actually worth the effort and money. It is surrounded by a bit of a show, but most of it added to the experience and it felt a bit like an amusement park ride. Free Wi-Fi at the 100th floor allowed me to... More

I know there are plenty of high ratings for this attraction but it's so great, I wanted to add my own. it's a little expensive but worth it. definitely opt for the ticket to the very top. the glass floored observation deck is so cool. we were lucky that the smog, err pollution, wan't too bad so we could see...

We went to the top of this on a pretty misty afternoon, but the view was still spectacular as dusk approached and the city lights cam on. Highly recommended.

Ladies Night is on Wednesday Evenings on the 92nd floor of the tower. Free wine between 20:30-22:30 for ladies, and men can get in for a small charge. The DJ played a good mix of pop, while there was also an in-house band to spice things up. There was a mix of age groups represented, from young students such as... More

Tours go to the 94th, 97th and 100 floor for different prices. We did 94th (get senior rate if applicable) and the view was OK based on the ton of smog in the air that day. Not sure paying more would get you any better view!!

There is no doubt the view is spectacular. However, for 30 USD per person, you are much better off at Jinmao Tower Bar Level 87 (13 floors below the financial center) where you can enjoy some drinks for the same cost and get similar views. Been to both Bar Level 87 and Shanghai Financial Center 3 times and this is... More

Sadly the day we visited it was extremely smoggy so we saw no view at all from the viewing platform. Try to choose a sunny , clear day if possible.

The tallest building in Shanghai. Tremendous view from the top. We paid 180 yuan and 100 for the kid. Seniors have a special price. 101 floor. After security check, found a long line to the elevator. 1 minute to reach to floor 97 and another line to the floor 100. Beautiful view with glass under your legs with a height... More
