Fantastic view from the 100th floor and a great experience all around. Take in the view from the 97th floor after visiting the 100th - you won't believe how much smaller it feels! Entrance isn't cheap but the views (provided it is a clear day) are well worth it. If you can, buy your tickets before you get to the... More

If you are in the area you can walk by - it looks really nice. If you are from a bigger city you will not be really amazed - but it is a nice place.

The World Financial Centre has lot inside but the main highlight is the viewing Observatory at the 100th floor which gives outstanding views of the city including Pearl Tower and the River Promenade. Its a must do location if you are going to Shanghai. The building looks like a long bottle opener from outside and is currently the tallest operational... More

The view is amazing! I could stay there and stare at the city forever. If you want to go up only one of the towers in Shanghai, it should be WFC because it gives you a glance at JinMao and Pearl Tower.

Well, the bottle opener is great, but should you have to decide which tower to visit, go to the Pear Tower! Yes, SWFC is higher. Yes, you will look down to the Pear Tower and think, "my god, it is so tiny". BUT!! From the Pear Tower you can see all the other big towers like Jin Mao, Bottle opener... More

Staying in Lujiazui

Neighborhood Profile
Lujiazui
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
