My partner and I visited here in November 2014, we got off the metro at Century Avenue and walked along Century Avenue. Its around 2k to walk this journey but it is so worth it, you get a fantastic view of the area and buildings surrounding the central Pudong area, with the three biggies (Shanghai Tower, SWFC and the Jin...

Good choice for those who want to observe Shanghai from above. Go to the 100th floor, very interesting. Just is not higher than that seen in the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, but well worth the trouble worth it for anyone going to Shanghai.

You must stop and just see this area if only to snap some pictures. The metro takes you right to the center of this area where there are plenty of big name shops, coffee shops, and lights! Can't wait to visit again in the evening!

The entrance fee is a bit expenisve but still worth while. They have a small scale display of the city at the ground level. When you get to the top floors, besides the breath taking view they also display some interesting facts about the building construction.

I am an Architect and I always pay a visit to those new buildings around the world. If you ask me whether you should come to see the 2nd tallest building in Shanghai? The answer is yes and you will realize the new China is catching up so fast. However, the management of this building is not up to quality... More

I was there in a rainy season thus I enjoyed even more hiding in a glass building. Staff was nice and the entrance was 180 RMB so not so cheap

From the top of the building, an impressive view over the boosting city: a characteristic experience in modern China.

If you want a 360 aerial view on a sunny day this is the only place to go in Shanghai. If it is foggy or cloudy and you can't see the top from the ground, don't bother going up because the view is blocked. Once at the top you can walk around the top floor to take photos and selfies.... More
