  • My 3 boys loved this. The views of the city were spectacular. We went on a Sunday, it was pretty empty.  more »
  • This is one of the hearts of the Chinese economic powerhouse. An Economics geek like me would enjoy. A regular person that does not share my interest or knows Mandarin, not so much  more »

  • Shanghai World Financial Center is one of the tallest buildings in Shanghai, its architecture is very unique describes China's rapid economic progress. its location in the city center makes it easy access to it and would not worry about where to eat there because of the many cafes around the building. already twice here but not bored
  • The Shanghai World Financial Center the tallest building in Shanghai. We arrived at night and the lines were short. It didn't take very long to go from the entrance to the top of the observation deck. The visitors moved very fast in group through the hallways to the elevators. The weather was clear there was a view of the city in all directions. There are restaurants and shops on the lower level of the building.
  • One of the iconic building, you have to go up there. You get good far reaching views, even in a cloudy day. I would recommend, one of the must see buildings in Shanghai.
  • For a great view of the bund and a bird's eye view of Shanghai, i would highly recommend going to the observatory tower. Do check the weather before paying to go up, some days it can be cloudy and the view will be affected!
  • We have been to many observatories and this has been one of our favorite. Sheer glass and modernity from the futuristic elevator to the all glass deck that you can see below and beyond. Best to visit at dusk and stop by the cafe until evening to catch two views for the price of one.
