Definately a jewel!

Crowded, but absolutely worth going to. Check out the glass floor observation deck, the revolving restaurant and the absolutely amazing museum!

The tower has a great view and the glass walkway is absolutely amazing.......it took some effort to actually walk across it. This is worth the wait, which we had when we went, it was not too long but believe that it can be some time in the busy periods.......summer and weekends. Like all sightseeing in China there can be a... More

The tower has a fantastic see through floor on the deck below the main gallery. The see through floor makes your head spin when you are looking down for a few seconds. Excellent view of the city.

You'll never realize how huge Shanghai is otherwise - just don't get woozy if you go out onto the glass floor....the wildest view I assure!

I wanted to check out the museum in the basement of the tower then maybe head up for the view. But as soon as I arrived and saw the line I left. Went for Turkish food instead.

Neat to stand on clear floor and look down! Must ride the roller coaster inside. It's like Space Mountain in Disney, just smaller and lighter. Museum inside was really neat.

Very interesting vist, with excellent views and a very nice museum at ground floor. It is a problem to access to the highest level due to limited capacity of elevator.

Come here during weekend and very crowded. Take about half an hour queue before we can go up. Can see Shanghai city view from this tower and really must visit this when go Shanghai. Closer outside view also available using binocular (rmb 1 each) but very quick finish. My son very like it especially when go to the part of... More

there are different levels of tour in the tower. Recommend to purchase the highest tour package, so you can tour different levels of the tower. View is breath taking. Suggest to go around 5pm, so you can see city both during day time and night time.

A great place for a long stroll or a jog and with a scenic view. You see people from different nationalities here. It is quite relaxing to sit there given there is no rain or the heat is not too intense.
