We went to Jin Mao Tower in April 2017. I had read that you could walk up and have dinner there. However, we were wearing casual clothes (bummy jeans and t-shirts). When we got off the elevator at the fancy restaurant near the top, they...More

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.

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

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).
