  • This place is awesome you have large skyscraper where you look and are large banks and at night have a light show of the towers that give a place different magic, also have large parks in which you can be quiet and out of the chaos of people. It is recommended only for adult

  • If you are not from a country where skyscrapers are popular, this view will be very exciting to you, especially at night, when the skyscrapers are lightened 
  • 911029499384 really the financial center of Shanghai is spectacular. My image of China and Shanghai was transformed after being there. In the financial centre of the city you can see the fortress and economic capacity has Shanghai, you can find financial giants with its giant buildings, leaving behind the erstwhile city remote from the world of capital and investment.

  • 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.
