Owner description: Speed to the top of the world’s third tallest TV and radio tower for a spectacular view, or just gaze at this beautiful structure from afar, especially striking when lit up at night.

We went up this tower and enjoyed looking out over all the vistas of Shanghai. At the top there is a clear glass viewing floor that allows the visitor to look straight down as well. Also there are open areas above the protective barrier so there is air movement and one can take ohotos without any obstructions. It is an excellent place to see the city's layout form all directions.

Splendid views over all of Shanghai (through the smog) but worth it just to step on the glass floor at the top

The tower lights up at night and you can go up to several levels. At 90 meters there is the glass bottom so you walk out and look down from where you are standing to see the ground. Higher up have beautiful views of the city.

I bought my ticket not even expecting to go to this attraction, but since I had some time to kill, I went and was pleasantly surprised. It was inexpensive ($22/USD) and there are a few levels to see. The top level offers a great view of Shanghai (360º) and the deck was very clean. The lower deck about 2-3 floors down had a plexiglass floor...AMAZING! I was literally standing with nothing but a 1/2" sheet of plastic separating me and 1200 feet of air! People were freaking out all around me...ironically, it was the kids who were jumoing up and down and running all over the place. I saw grown men walking like cats along the edge of the glass...HILARIOUS! Great experience - Highly recommended!!!
