Jin Mao Tower, Shanghai
(4.3/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Jin Mao Tower represents a landmark skyscraper and an architectural marvel reaching a staggering height of 420.5 meters (1,380 ft). With 88 stories and 5 additional floors in the spire, the building employs advanced engineering systems to diminish the destructive effects of typhoons and earthquakes. Explore the structure's many leisure, residential, and business facilities, including shopping malls, nightclubs, restaurants, a luxury hotel, and commercial offices. For that remarkable panoramic view of the city, visit the Skywalk--an indoor observation deck reached by two express elevators.

  • If the possibility exists, you should ride with the lift upwards and marvel at the views of the city. It is fantastic.

  • Even on a cloudy day (they warn you), it is fun to go to the 88th floor and get a 360-degree view of Shanghai. Our tickets were included with the Big Bus Tour tickets. Bus stop is just outside. 
  • You will have to transfer lifts to get to the atrium but it is absolutely worth the trip to go there

  • One of the most beautiful skyscrapers in the skyline. 88 floors and 420 meters, it has Hyatt and its own Canton restaurant which is also amazing. Definitely worth checking out the view if you have time and have been to the Shanghai Tower before. Also, beautiful for photography in general from both inside and outside.
  • Beautiful place. Not the tallest. But fast queues and great view. Skywalk looks like fun. Will be nice when it's fully open.
  • Most beautiful building in Asia!!! I forgot the name but the view from the bar at top level in the night was amazing!!!
  • Amazing views of Shanghai - go to the cloud 9 bar and you only have to buy a drink as opposed to an observation deck ticket.
  • As our Crystal Cruise docked in downtown Shanghai, the magnificent cityscape was mesmerizing. The skyscrapers that have been erected on both sides of the Huangpu River (an offshoot of the Yangtze that runs through the city) are incredible feats of engineering. Their design and construction is even more impressive once you learn that the buildings sit on a belt of seismic activity that has been hit in the past by powerful 200 mile-per-hour typhoons. As part of an all-day shore excursion offered by the cruise line, we took one of the two high-speed express elevators to the observation deck on the 88th floor of the Jin Mao Tower. In addition to a deck (called a skywalk) that is open to the public, the structure has a shopping mall, office space, and a 5-star Grand Hyatt Hotel with 555 rooms occupying the 53rd to 87th floors. The deck hosts the highest post office in China. The underground parking garage has room for cars as well as 2000 bicycles...
