It was a smoggy day so we didn't get the experience we'd hoped for! Not wasted though as it was free in our hop on hop off bus tour!

Jin Mao Tower is business building with Hayat hotel but it is open for turist and you can take elevator (extremly fast) to the top of building where is great view of Shanghai. Another great view sopt is TV tower. I was on booth buildings and for my taste TV tower have better view.

Going up an ridiculously fast elevator to 340 meters or 88 floors is fun in itself. Would've been better if it was a glass elevator. Great view at the top with the usual souvenir shops. A 360 degree view of the city gives you a great feel of the layout of the city but the amazing thing is that this... More

Great view and extremely clean place. If you have to choose between the TV Tower and Jin Mao Tower, the TV Tower is much better. Still you can go to the Jin Mao Tower to say you went... But seriously it's a very nice place with amazing view!

Although there are nowadays already higher buildings just next door, the JinMao tower still has a great view over Shanghai. Advantage is that it has less visitors than the newer or more prominent buildings. Either you can queue and pay for the official viewing platform, you can sip a drink in the evening at the bar of Grand Hyatt on... More

The view from Jin Mao tower is probably one of the best of Shanghai, absolutely worth a trip. If you combine with the BIg Bus ticket it is also very reasonably priced.

Great place to visit, the Jin Mao Tower its one of the biggest tower in Asia and a massive building holding part of the financial district and the Hyatt hotel. You can either pay a ticket to the Observation Deck in the 88th floor (around 120CY) or go to the bar of the Hyatt in the 87th (Cloud 9) but... More

One of the best views of Shanghai is available from the 87th floor of the JinMao tower, at the Cloud 9 bar, which you can access via the lobby of the Grand Hyatt Hotel. You can also take a look at the new Shanghai Tower, not yet completed at this point. Great place to have a end of the day... More

A view not to be missed and well worth the fee for the Observation deck if you are not staying at the Grand Hyatt.

Staying in Lujiazui

Neighborhood Profile
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.
