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...

Whilst up there have a quick look down to the lobby through the... More

Jin Mao Tower is the heart of Shanghai. It is is a great place to have either a drink or relax. When you go up to floor 88, you will come to a floor. Which, when you look up you will be amazed with the view. This is a great tower to visit and is nice and clean

We visited the Jin Mao Tower on a Saturday in September, and there was no line at all. In fact, we had to wait a few minutes for there to be enough people to send up in the elevator. Now the 3rd highest building in Shanghai, the Jin Mao Tower is sandwiched between the Shanghai World Financial Center (also called... More

The fast elevator to the 88th floor takes less than a minute and is a completely smooth ride. The views out over the city are just amazing - some of the best pictures I took of Shanghai are from the tower. Must make sure you take a peek at the indoor windows that look down on the hotel's atrium, it's... More

If you have a choice between oriental tower and this, I would go for Oriental.the lift in Jinmao is impressive . One reaches the 88th floor in roughly 50 soundless seconds
