Worth a visit to see over Shanghai. Only good if the pollution is not too bad. Does get very crowded and there are some long queues.

One feels the effects of g-forces blocking your ear as we ascend the 88 floors in a super-speed elevator...Once at the top, the views of the Bund, Pudong on one side, Puxi on the other are fantastic. However, the Shanghai tower is dwarfing the Jinmao...More

You can just walk in with little or no queue (midweek). Great views all round the building and for the brave you can walk outside for another RMB300 while tethered to the biulding

We visited the inside of the tower, and went to the Grand Hyatt bar on the top floors. The view is astonishing and i would greatly recommend having a drink there rather than paying the entry fee for shanghai tower

The best thing about Jin Mao Tower is, firstly, that it has a metro stop downstairs. Secondly, it also contains the Grand Hyatt Hotel, with its excellent facilities.

An amazing view point to watch Shanghai from above. An incredible highlight is the Skywalk outside in 340m. One of my favourite spots in Shanghai.

Excellent views of the entire Shanghai area from the observation deck on the 88th floor! At least, when the skies are clear (which they were on the day we visited).

The views from this tower are spectacular. There is a viewing area inside where you can look down through the interior. Small gift shop is available on the viewing platform and for the brave, a sky walk.

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

Well, I was 60+ when I were on 88th floor of Jin Mao Tower. They might have changed policy. Why not go to the Pearl Tower glass skywalk or to the new Shanghai Tower which I consider being much better than Jin Mao Tower.

Hi, We'd like to go for a meal in the tower. Which restaurant gives the best views? What type of food does it serve? I've looked at Hyatt website and it shows the foods but doesn't explain which floor they are all on. The price doesn't really matter. Cheers Chris

Not sure about the restaurants but we went to the Cloud 9 bar for dessert and drinks which from memory is located on the 87th floor.

Which one???? (4 Replies)
Greetings from Lisbon, Portugal! I'll be visiting Shanghai (and the world Expo, of course!) next month. Besides the Expo, I want to visit the city itself. Regarding the "best views" subject (considering as well price, waiting time, experience, etc), which one is the best, for a first-timer: a) Oriental Pearl Tower; b) World Financial Center; c) Jin Mao Tower. Thanks in advance for all replies!

Rather than recommend one, let me eliminate one. The Jin Mao Tower has small windows and a cramped viewing room with handrails and a simply awkward process to view all aspects of the city. The windows were filthy dirty when I was there two times. Eliminate that one.

Going to Shanghai this March. Just like to get some opinions about Jin Mao Tower or Orient Pearl Tower. Which tower is worth visiting ? And how much is the entrance charges ?

Shanghai Tower opening date is not clear, so if for bird's eye views of the city, the highest building--World Financial Center (RMB 150 for top deck) is recommended over Pearl Tower (RMB 160 for the sightseeing floor) and Jinmao Tower (RMB120 for the 88th deck).
