“nothing for acrophics..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

going to Pudung in Shanghai includes often a visit of the oriental pearl or the quite new SWFC Building. You can easily get there by the metro, exit at Lujazui (Line 2). Sometimes it takes a while to get in, but, you should have at least 2 hours time to spend. Entry is 150RMB p.P. If you are up and still like to do the skywalk, you can also take the stairs, instead of waiting for the elevator. You shoukd choose a sunny day or the evening to have sundowner there. But the building really sways in that hight of 472 meters.. If you dont care about that and feel fine while walking on glas where you could look through, you will really enjoy it.

“Fantastic view - great attraction for all, but amazing for the engineers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Had a Sunday morning open when on a business trip with others from North America. It was cloudy, and when buying tickets they warned us there may be zero visibility, but we took a chance. Luckily there were some breaks in the clouds so we could view much of city, albeit in pieces. Went to all the observation floors, and, as an engineer it is fascinating. Looking down on the adjacent Jin Mao Tower is amazing. They were building the Shanghai Tower when we visited - the construction cranes were roughly even with the 100th floor observation deck. When finished the view from the Shanghai tower I'm sure will also be amazing. Any time it is cloudy there is definitely a risk of no visibility (you would just see a grey fog/cloud), but even with some breaks the trip was definitely worth it. Had lunch on the ground floor City Bull restaurant - great burgers! Almost forgot - the elevator ride is also amazing. One elevator from the ground floor up - very fast and incredibly smooth. They also have a neat scale model of Shanghai at the beginning of the tour.

If you to to Shanghai, you have to take the night trip to the Financial Center, Amazing buildings and the atmosphere is magical. During winter get really cover up because if freezing but still you get the chance to see a beautiful scene.
