  • We had lunch at the 104 walk in a sensational restaurant. And then we had the visitation on Lookout Mountain. Beautiful photos of Shanghai

  • 之前曾經在環球金融中心實習過一段時間,也對這裡相對比較了解了。個人覺得算是陸家嘴地區比較好看的一幢建築了。最高一百層,觀景平台在生日當天可以免費參觀。各種餐廳比較齊全,可以滿足不同口味。  more »
  • I'd been there when the Shanghai Tower was under construction; This is no longer the highest point in Shanghai but now it may be convenient to go there: I no longer found Queuing to get on it. :-) The view is always beautiful and get exciting; mandatory fine weather. Sunset is gorgeous.

  • 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.
