Excellent view

The Jin Mao Tower offers an excellent view around Shanghai. However, this is depending from the Shanghai weather. So take care that it's not cloudy!

For years, the Jin Mao Tower was the #1 building in term of height in Shanghai. I have been up there several times and had a drink in the bar. Now you have to look up to two other taller buildings which gives a different perspective!!

We visited the Tower during the day. It was very overcast, with earlier rain, so limited visibility. Look down the golden elevator shaft for 88 floors. There were many pictures of the skyline that looked great - so pick a sunny day.

Went up Jin Mao Tower at night and the view was great! Would definitely recommend to go when the sky is clear!

Great hotel, spectacular views, fantastic breakfast (both western and chineas), good restaurants (albeit expensive and not really worth the price) - a bit "off Broadway", but still...., just a single stop from the west bank and the Pund. River view room is well worth it.

This is a unique looking building that is worth the time just to look at and take photos. Lights up at night.

I was there by night and went at the cocktail bar of the hôtel on the top of the tower. There you have an extraodinary view of the Bund, Puxi and the modern buildings of Pudong !

Located on the financial side of the Bund the tower is massive. You can take a sky walk and lean over the heights or just enjoy the view. There is a circular drop which is fantastic and leads down to the Hyatt reception area. Price is reasonable best seen at night

Loved the views. (Wished they had cleaned the windows though) Loved the speed going up the floors in 9 seconds - made my ears pop. Number of floors 88 I think? You have to pay to go up - equiv £8 each. It looks out over the Shanghai Tower which is even higher than this one. It's pretty cool so... More

This is a beautiful building more so inside than outside as there are better looking buildings but it is still a great place to visit. Don’t forget your camera and snap away.

Thank Daniel A

Staying in Lujiazui

Neighborhood Profile
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.
