Make sure you time your day of good weather. You are probably wasting your money if there's smog or rain. But if it's a good day then it's great views all around. Even of the building next door which is being constructed and will be taller than this building. Make sure you go to the centre of the tower and... More

After visiting places like Victoria Peak and the Sky100 Observation deck in Hong Kong, Jin Mao Tower was disappointing. Interesting view "down" to the lobby of the Hyatt but it appeared they were more interested in hawking wares than in a true visual experience. Unless you get the admission as part of another tour ticket, I wouldn't waste the money... More

If you want to get great panoramic views of shanghai and if you don't want to pay lot of money, this is the place to go. This is the building which looks a bit like the NYC chrysler building.

We did this as part of an evening excursion which included skipping the queue (which to be fair were not too long for a weekend evening). We arrived in time to see daylight fading and all the surrounding lights coming on - views of the Oriental Pearl tower and the Bund were great, As a bonus the Jin Mao tower... More

We took the elevator to the 88th floor which takes 45 seconds from the bottom to the top. Unfortunately the day we visited it was a cloudy day and we had no view of the Shanghai. At the top is the highest post office in China which had great post cards and stamps and other mementos. One of the shops... More

Fantastic. The tower is special, the views are great, the food is fantastic and the atmosphere is superb. Only in Shanghai can one be sitting enjoying a cold drink overlooking the whole city. A very special place to go and make sure you take the time to visit.

I was staying at the Hyatt Hotel contained in the Jin Mao building. My room was on the 70th floor. However, I thought I had better have a look from the top. You can not go to the top from the hotel, you have to go to the ground floor, go next door, pay your money and then catch the... More

We went up the Jin Mao tower in the evening, timing our visit to see the sun go down and to get a great view of Shanghai at night. The journey to the top of the tower is a very quick escalator ride - its very smooth and you don't really feel like you are moving very quickly. Be prepared... More

Having recently been up the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, I almost didn't bother with the Jin Mao. However I am so glad I did go up. Totally different atmosphere - more relaxed by far., spend as long as you like with no-one hurrying you along. The elevator (lift) journey was quite an experience, and the view from the top is...
