  • This is a very cool place to go see. The skyscrapers soaring up around you in the financial district are impressive and they have great viewing platforms to see the city from.
  • Amazing site seeing hotspot. Everywhere you look are skyscrapers, one construction after the other.
  • The second tallest skyscraper in Shanghai, at the heart of the financial district. Taking the high speed elevator to the tower's observation deck with glass see through floors, which offers the bird's-eye view of the Huangpu River and the CBD of Shanghai.
  • 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 30 view of Shanghai is absent. The glass was cloudy too and the Shanghai Tower had better views.
  • Thrilling experience on one of the world's tallest buildings, we were near the highest floor and I could feel the building swaying due to its height, a very unique experience
