The view from the 100th floor is absolutely amazing. We went to the TV tower at evening and decided to go to SWFC during the day and had no queue waiting for us, what was great. The first part of the tour is brilliant, comparing the progress of Tokyo, Shanghai and NY during the years with its population. A huge... More

Four of us went up the tower on a nice morning and the view over the skyline was really exceptional. It gives you a sense of just how big Shanghai is from a 100 floors high

We went to the 100th floor and had a great view of the city and other and surrounding areas. It was about 4pm and a sunny day so we had a lot of glare from the windows on one side of the building and couldn't take very good photos. While I was thinking this wasn't too great, the next day... More

As others have pointed out, the view from the top is truly amazing. It's hard to really understand just how high you are up! The ride up in the elevator from below ground to the 94th floor is especially fun - an attendant gives you a brief explanation before hopping on the elevator about the fast speed of the elevator...

There's already a taller building under construction in Shanghai, but at the time of visiting it was the tallest in the city. The view was incredible. It offered a full view of The Bund and all the other local landmarks.

Great view of the whole of Shanghai from the top of the tower. Very similar experience to the Shard in London. Top floor has glass see-through floor panels - not great for vertigo sufferers! Photo opportunity at the top - reasonably good value

The Financial center which is across the Bund is a place to see. Impressive skyline including worlds largest skyscrapers.

The view was amazing, looking down on all the other buildings (apart from one almost complete which is even higher).

The SWFC tower is high, no doubt. But frankly we found it a bit overrated and expensive. At CNY 170 per person it does not give the same feeling of awe that Macau tower or the Sydney tower gives from the top. If you haven't been on top of SWFC, you haven't missed anything great.

Something you definitely should do when you are visiting Shanghai. And I advise you to do it a night when the lighted skyline of Shanghai is at his best. The elevator will take you to the top of the building in less then a minute with approx. 8 m/s. (This is already an attraction itself... :) ) When I entered... More
