This could be one of the fastest rides in your life: 88 floors up in 45 seconds! And what views when you get to the observation deck! Unlike the top of the Eiffel Tower, it feels solid and doesn't provoke any feelings of vertigo. Just enjoy the amazing views all round. Of course, Shanghai is often misty, but it's well... More

The first great Aha experience was getting in the lift, after the doors closed I waited some minutes wandering why we were not going, I was about to ask when I noticed an arrow over the doors indicating we were half way up already - Not the slightest feeling of motion whatsoever. The views of the surrounding Pudong and across... More

Summary: This skyscraper was the first one built in New Pudong. It is beautiful in its simple design and looks like a metal and glass Empire State Building. The lobby is traditional with marble floors that provide office access to thousands of employees. Additionally, some hotels are located in the higher echelons of the building. Take some pictures of the... More

It's well worth taking a trip to the Jin Mao Tower in Pudong. Go to the 88th floor for amazing views across Shanghai as well as a dizzying view as you peer down the inner floors right down to the ground floor.

Jin Mao Tower is just one of the many amazing examples of modern architecture located in the Lujiazui area of the Pudong district in Shanghai. Having already visited the Shanghai Financial Centre Observation area, my wife and I visited here we had complimentary entry tickets which you get if you take a BigBus Tour of Shanghai. The views are still... More

While this is the definitely not the highest, but it is the most beautiful building/tower in SHANGHAI. They are also cheaper to go up in comparison to Pearl Oriental Tower. and definitely higher up. They look more "prosperous" with the steel finishing outside the glass window. Not sure about the practicality but definitely looks good.

Ok, this used to be one of the taller buildings in LuJaizui, and every year it is dwarfed by newer and another "world's tallest building" titles nearby. But come here for a drink at the 53rd floor and chill. Sit and enjoy the piano music nearby. Yea, it's expensive and yea you might have to deal with folks smoking nearby,... More

A group of us went up to the 88th floor on the Jin Mao Tower and the views were great (it wasn't too misty due to the pollution that day). You can also look down to the 56th floor of the Hyatt Hotel reception which is quite an unusual view.

A really nice building and Grand Hyatt Hotel located from 53rd floor whcih you could have a cup of at their coffee shop but it's expensive. Four soft drinks cost almost $300 which you could have dinner in a decent Shanghai restaurant.

The good: Nice views from the second highest tower in Shanghai. Spectacular view right in the lobby of the "highest hotel in the world"; the entrance price is definitely cheaper than its neighbour towers. The bad: it's IMMENSELY popular with mainland tourist (young and old), so be prepared to spend some time in an overcrowded elevator and view deck, full... More
