  • Located on the Pudong, across the Bund, this neighborhood expresses the power business and financial Shanghai.On there is the tallest towers of the city and a stolen commercial center and luxury hotels all over fine with each other... but without souls. It is also very easy to get lost, so best is to equip themselves with a plan before you go through it

  • 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!
  • It's no longer the tallest in Shanghai, but the view is still very worth it. The 100th floor is a little extra, but it's very worth it. The angled roof and floor viewing is unique. The 94th floor doesn't actually have much of a view, just the cafe. My only complaint is they have lots of models of the building...but none of them are bottle-openers! That's the nickname of the building and the only bottle-opener they have is a boring flat one. Come on, take one of those models and turn it into an actual bottle opener.
  • 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.
  • Great building and the observation platform is great too just difficult to take photos because of the angle of the windows.
  • It's the 2nd tallest building in Shanghai with fabulous view (if the weather is good).

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.
