I guess most people will go to the SWFC as it's taller, and then the Shanghai Tower when it's open - but architecturally this was my preference. Ironically, given the weather was poor, the views were probably better from the Jin Mao on that day anyway, as it's (slightly) shorter. I also appreciated the fact that when I went the... More

Wonderful building, great reception, wonderful (at a very fair price) dinner buffet. Spectacular view from reception floor as well as from Cloud 9. Recommended.

The entrance cost to this tower was included as part of our two day bus pass with the Big Bus Tour company. Their ticket had to be exchanged for a building ticket as we went in but there was no queuing involved. The lift took us to the 88th floor for some magnificent views. If like me you have vertigo...

When this was the tallest we used to go and sit and drink g and t's in the Hyatt rather than pay to go the extra 5m to the observatory. Now we do the same at the Hyatt of the SWFC saving the considerable cost whilst relaxing in a cool bar!

Great views all around from this tower and atleast during the visit in July 2014 no queues and not so "crowded". Allthough you cannot get so high as the next door Shanghai IFC (only 88th floor) there is the benefit that you can see the IFC building up close too in addition to the new Shanghai Tower which is still...

The tower is a great way to view the city at night. I generally hate heights but the elevator ride was the best I have ever experienced and it didnt seem so bad walking around the viewing area on the top. Lots of good information about the other skyscrapers going up in the area and stats on those from around... More

You should visit the Jin Mao Tower at the Grand Hyatt Shanghai. The Front desk is at 54th floor which can be reached in a few seconds. Once you get there, take the elevator to the Cloud 9 Bar on the 87th floor. It's the highest Bar in the whole Shanghai. Tip: go to the bar at night, the skyline... More

Tip: instead of paying the fee to reach the top, you can go to a lower floor at the hotel or restaurant , have a drink there with a similar excellent view of the Bund.

This tour is all about the view. 88 floors straight up with no stops. Smoothest elevator ride I've ever been on. 360 degree views with information about the building itself and information about other skyscrapers around the world. Gift shop up there as well.
