“Huge but not for long!”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Was the tallest in the world but since has been beaten by Burj Khalifa. Now building another nearby even taller than the Burj. SWFC houses businesses, a hotel, shops etc.

“Breathtaking view from the 100th floor 425meters high”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

The visit of the observatory is an absolute must when in Shanghai. Fast elevators bring you to the 100th floor 425 metres high. Breathtaking views from Shanghai. When we visited it was a bit hazy but we still have a superb view.

Wow, these buildings. Absolutely breathtaking. Great architecture. One building higher than the other one and always some green spots between. Lovely.

“Amazing views”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

The height of this building is amazing and the views of Shanghai are breathtaking. Our group spent a few hours here. I loved the glass floor but it made others in our group queasy. The bathrooms were also very neat.

“Highest building in Shanghai”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

The Shanghai World Financial Center (SWFC) also known as the "Bottle Opener" (due to his shape) is still the highest building in Shanghai. However, the currently under construction "Shanghai Tower" will exceed the SWFC by 150 meters once it will build in 2014. In the basement and on the 2nd and 3rd floors are a lot of restaurant. On the very top is an observation deck which is open for the public (cost around RMB 150). If the whether condition are good the view is simply incredible. The best time to go upstairs is shortly before dawn, having the opportunity to see Shanghai by day and night.
