Make sure to visit the Cloud 9 on the 87th floor! Great bar for drinks and appetizers. A little pricey, but the view alone is worth it! Make reservations for dusk, just before sunset! Invite the buskers over to your table; they will earn their tips and are quite entertaining! There is an observation deck on the 88th floor, and... More

If you are in to high places, this place is for you. For me, it was a bit too pricey for the experience and too many people; but if you go on the right day, it IS an AMAZING view!

The Tower is perfect if you wish to have the famous landmarks such as the World Finance Centre and TV Tower in the pictures that you take from the observation desk. There was a great 360 view of Shanghai and there seemed to be fewer large groups of tourists than I saw going into the other two towers which means... More

Not worth the money. The view was okay, but not as we expected. The restaurant there is expensive. We expected that the top glass floor view would be thrilled to view the ground. But accurately the view was dirty roof of several floors below.

Not the tallest of the forest of skyscrapers in Pudong but, unlike the taller buildings, it does have a 360 degree view over Shanghai. Fortunately we had a reasonably clear day but suspect the view will be disappointing on one of the many misty or smog days that Shanghai gets. With no real sensation, the lift to the 88th floor...

We were able to see for miles and even blue skies due to the typhoon which has just pasted by off the coast and blew all the horrible smog out of the city so we could actually see far. Normally u can't see for more than a 1/2 mile where all disappears into the fog of smog!

This towering building has awesome beauty all by itself, but added to its now two partners, this setting at night takes the breathe away, especially when the clouds float among them.

Jin Mao Tower is one of the early skyscrapers that Pudong in Shanghai is now bristling with. Although overtaken by other buildings now, a visit to the observation deck is cheaper than the taller "Bottle Opener" building. It is not too crowded either and you go up without too much fuss or waiting. The views of the city all around... More

From Johannesburg to Shanghai is quite a long trip. The experience of visiting this architectural masterpiece was worth the time. Although the weather was very hot, the moment I saw the building I must admit I forgot about the extreme heat. Worth the visit.

It was recommended to me as a spot to check out and I was glad I did. There is no fee, but I understand there is a minimum charge (which I apparently exceeded). This was the only place where I saw even a hint of blue sky while I was in Shanghai for a week during rainy season. I almost... More
