If you do have a spare hour this is worth a visit, look over Shanghai and grab a beer or cocktail, views are great in this impressive and prominent feature in the shanghai skyline.

This is a very modern building amongst the skyscrapers of Shanghai. You travel up in a super fast lift to the 88th floor. The views are amazing. Thru the centre of the building is the lobby for a hotel, so you look over into the centre down 32 floors, quite scarry. Worth a visit.

The Jin Mao Tower is an iconic building. Very impressive architecture, we didn't have the chance to to up, but instead we went to the opposite building, Oriental Pearl Tower (Dongfang Mingzhu), and it was great fun.

Jin Mao tower is one of the most fantastic sky scrapers in the world, it is one of three tallest sky scrapers in Shanghai. When you stand on 88th floor, it is amazing experience to understand how big is the Jin Mao tower, but also see that it is now even the tallest building in Shanghai. Definitively worth seeing.

Besides the panoramic view from the top, then the transparent floor one flight down, my favorite place to visit the the Museum of the City of Shanghai on the ground floor - Shanghai from the 16th century until today - this part of the visit should always be included.

If you are on a budget and do not wish to pay to enjoy a view similar to what you will see from the top of the Oriental Pearl Tower, this is the place to go! You can either have a tea-break at their cafe and stay as long as you want or pop by their hotel lobby for a... More

Great views overlooking Shanghai. Very few people when we went up so no crowds to contend with. Entrance fee included in hop on hop off tour price. Well worth going up to get bird's eye view of city. Can buy souvenirs at top. Top 30 floors are part of Hyatt hotel and from observation deck you can look down the... More

We docked with our cruise ship for a day in Shanghai and headed for the Jin Mao Tower. We stepped into the lift and suddenly we were on the 88th floor! This is the highest building we have ever been in and think it is now the 2nd highest in the world! Looking down into the atrium of the Hyatt... More

A long time home in the early 2000s when I regularly worked in Shanghai is still going strong and this was evident during a recent visit there. The rooms were still comfortable and the service excellent. With the growth of other hotels and buildings around Jin Mao Tower it is still the landmark building in the CBD. Very accessible to...
