  • I feel that Shanghai is a city of contrast. Two widely different poles intersecting in a chaotic way. Old meets new. Modern meets old school. Refined meets raw. Cross over the Huangpu and here I am in the middle of Lujiazui, an epitome of modern Shanghai. Brightly lit with skyscrapers that are amongst the tallest in the world (in the same spot!), much of the area are either malls or offices as this is the business district. From so up close, the 3 towers stand like “brothers” in arms, watchful over Shanghai. I’m getting nervous just looking at them.
  • Great views. One of the top 10 tallest building in the world. Thought it's the tallest but Shah tour is much taller than this one.
  • It’s a real experience to go up there. Even with all the smog you can see a lot and it’s truly breathtaking. And don’t be scared if it’s cloudy, if you’re lucky you can get an a amazing view with a view clouds. Just look at the picture I took ;)
  • The Shanghai World Financial Center is a wonderful piece of architecture on the outside. However, one catch is that the observation decks only face east and west, so a 360 degree view of Shanghai is absent. The glass was cloudy too and the Shanghai Tower had better views.
  • This building is nuts!!!! so high in the sky, definitely not for the faint hearted. Seriously impressive building and can see the whole city from above. Give it a go and see how you feel once u get to the top and walk across the glass floor hundreds of metres up in the air!

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
