It's a pretty average observation deck, and was very crowded when we went. I mainly went to get some decent night photos of the city but couldn't as the windows were quite dirty. Also there was a really brightly lit building on the East(?) side which spoiled any photos. The view itself was quite good though. The glass floor thing... More

I feel that this area is the most Beautiful part of Shanghai and even the most Beautiful Townpart in the World. You have to see it both day and ablsolutely in the evening.

Bought the visit up to the 100 floor. The views are just awesome. It is a very nice visit if you want to get an idea of how Shanghai skyline is. The price has been 180¥ per person, which might be a bit overpiced if you think later than you only spend there 1h.

on our last day we dashed on the subway and got to the tower at 11:00 am on. Saturday. No line. After a quick video, we went directly to the top. We had a bright day but it was hazy. But the view was amazing! The glass floor was cool, but made a few us a bit anxious. Kind of... More

the top of the building is good. however the lightening is not good for photography in the night maybe because some building are flashing light back on this building. there will be pressure difference when the lift goes up so be ready for that. nice experience.

try to book your visit in a sunny day, if that is possible. Pictures are great from this location! It is a little bit expensive 180RMB but it works every penny

Nice tower with good views on a clear day. The whole experience was good including the elevators. A bit pricey but worth it

This is my favourite tower in Shanghai. Though some would fondly liken this structure to a bottle opener, this is a very high tech building. At the 100th floor is the world's tallest observatory.
