A brilliant view!

2nd tallest building in the world and tallest in Shanghai, this is definitely a must-see attraction. I’d recommend going as soon as they open and not on a weekend so you can experience the panoramic views with a fight to the window!

Awesome breath taking view of Shanghai

Awesome view from the tallest building in shanghai. A must see. When we went it was clear skies and breathtaking views. The elevator to the 118th floor was Super smooth and impressive. On the ground floor they tell you tht history of the tower and compared with towers from other parts of the world. Burj Khalifa is still the tallest in the world.

Wow...

A very good spot for those who like skyscrapers. The view was not the best because of the particles but the sensation of height is real and impressive especially at the highest floor (top of the bottle opener) when you walk on a glass floor with the emptiness under your feet.

Extraordinary view
Dec 2018 • Couples
There are two observation decks in this tower - one on the 94th floor and one on the 100th floor. While the view from both is similar I would recommend the higher one. The only draw back as I found out was that some of the panels in the floor at level 100 are glass and it takes a little getting used to. Several people froze and would not go out on the observation deck so if you think this might affect you go to level 94 only. The only other aspect to consider is that to get the best view you will need to have a fairly clear day. Most of the days we had in Shanghai (December) had low cloud but there were a couple which were clear and the view was just extraordinary.

An experience you cannot miss!
Jul 2018 • Couples
Even though I was here later in the late afternoon to early evening when a bit of the typhoon was hitting Shanghai, I still enjoyed my visit. Its not hard to miss and I definitely encourage everyone to experience this. It offers great views of The Bund and as far as your eyes can see. Yes, of course do come on a clear day so you can see and we experienced both within the hour from clear, to cloudy to rain. With the rain hitting the building, of course our photos now have water beads in them. When it was cloudy, it has its own beauty in it, and when it was clear, the view was striking. The line ups was not bad, they move fast. There are exhibits about The Bund you can learn from. Its modern, high tech video room and model of Shanghai rotates for 24 hours rapid time lapse was really enjoyable. Attached to it was a high end mall, and elevated sidewalks connecting to other buildings you can experience as photo opportunities.

Absolutely must see - but go on a clear day
Aug 2018 • Friends
When we went there once it was foggy. You see hardly the top of the nearby buildings. It was a waste of time and we left again. But after coming back on a clear and low air pollution day - check some of the aqi websites - the views were just brilliant!

the view!
Apr 2018 • Couples
there is a fee to get up to the top, but its worth it for the view. Check the weather before you go though because on a cloudy or smoggy day its not so good, but on a clear day its ridiculously amazing how far you can see from that high up.
