  • Excellent place with different view of the bund. The ticket is a bit expensive but it's worth it. After all it's the second highest building in Shanghai. The glass floor is not as impressive as the Oriental pearl tower but still offer a different form of excitement
  • Expensive ticket but presents another view of the bund area. It's modern and it's worth the time.
  • Spectacular view! Make sure you go during good weather. It's very pretty during sunset too. They do have a great student discount if you ask. Also, definitely worth doing the 97F+100F pass.
  • Modern building offering great views of the Bund. I was here mainly for work so I didn't get a chance to explore much of the building. However, I like the interesting modern architecture, good air ventilation and easy access to the hotel next door. Tip: Instead of going to the basement to get a taxi, you can get a taxi from the hotel instead.
  • These are the tallest buildings I have seen so far. Very impressive, if you have the chance and are visiting Shanghai, you should go and see.
