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

This tower has a great location between the Pearl TV Tower, the World Financial Center, and the new Shanghai Tower, which offered us some great photo opportunities. The outside of the building is nice, but I really enjoyed being able to get the other towers in my photos. The elevator takes you up to the 88th floor in less than... More

We took the #2 Metro line to the Century Avenue stop. This turned out to be 2 stops farther than we intended to go to see the tallest buildings in Shanghai. However, we did not regret this-Century Avenue is at the heart of the new vision for Shanghai. The roadway is the widest divided highway we saw in the city,... More

The Tower is great because it's located between the Pearl and the World Financial Center. You can see for miles and the staff is very helpful. Beautiful pics of the scenery and the windows were very clean so that you can get clear pictures of whatever you want. Very nice.

For 60RMB you quickly arrive at the 88th floor. When the building was new it was the highest view available but now, in very close proximity, to taller towers are part of your experience. The Global Financial Center is right next door - you can look up to folks in its observation deck. The Shanghai Tower goes WAY beyond so... More

Climb 88 floors in 44 seconds to visit the 360 degree observastion deck with superb views of the city, the bustling rivers and the traffic jams. Avoid the giftshops, there is however a Starbucks on floor three which beats the basement cafe.

I guess most people will go to the SWFC as it's taller, and then the Shanghai Tower when it's open - but architecturally this was my preference. Ironically, given the weather was poor, the views were probably better from the Jin Mao on that day anyway, as it's (slightly) shorter. I also appreciated the fact that when I went the... More

Wonderful building, great reception, wonderful (at a very fair price) dinner buffet. Spectacular view from reception floor as well as from Cloud 9. Recommended.
