The building is nice to visit, lots of shops and good food options - but the view from the SWFC Observatory is amazing. Definitely worth a trip on a clear day. We didn't prebook it and there was no queue to buy tickets and head up. Tip - you get a coupon book with discounts for the shops and restaurants... More

I visited all 4 towers (Pearl, Shanghai, Jin Mao and SWFC) and SWFC was slightly disappointing. There were a lot of reflexions on the windows, because of the way the observation deck is constructed - with windows on both sides. And the small glass segments in the floor were disappointing because you were looking on another part of the building,... More

Must say I didn't go to China to see finance center, but this place was a great experience for me. It looks amazing. Very much worth the visit!

Interesting place to look around but I would say its one of those things you probably SHOULD do but the highlight would be going up Pearl Tower

Definitely buy the more expensive ticket to see all 3 floors. The views are incredible. Staff very friendly and helpful. We went at around 9.30pm (Thursday night) and only about 20 people there. Didn't need to queue for tickets. Last entry is at 10, closes at 11. We spent about an hour admiring the city lights. Only downside was some... More

Even on a cloudy smog filled day, the views are extraordinary. You will be treated to a beautiful panorama of the city.

This is a great free museum. This activity would be awesome for Families, too. The lines were long when we were there. If you are 70 years or older, you can go in the side entrance, which is a much quicker entrance. Several very large rooms divided by specialities. There are paintings, pottery, furniture, bronze and several other areas. Something... More

I thought the entrance fee was a little ambitious at £18 equivalent, but I was wrong. The views are stunning. If you are in Shanghai, it is a must see attraction. If you time your visit well you get daytime and nightime views, too.

The financial district has buildings that just blow you away sometimes you feel that you are in New York but these are newer and they get better and better

Staying in Lujiazui

Neighborhood Profile
Lujiazui
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
