  • The second-tallest building in the world is a beautiful sight. For a fairly stately entrance (approx. €20 P.p..), it is without real time via the express elevator quickly to the top. There's an observation floor (fully glazed, you can't go out there). Who cares, which can also visit a small exhibition about the building and other skyscrapers. The view is (assuming good weather and little smog) very nice and overall not too many people there are.

  • Went to 100 floor for which extra charge applicable but worth it. Glass floor walk is thrilling!When you are coming out it is different gate and no sitting space so synchronise your pick up. Better go...  more »

  • Wonderful feeling to be there. Surprising. Incredible view from almost 490m above the ground. Very modern. Highly recommend to see the Shanghai
  • Absolutely worth your while. It is quite expensive, but it is great. You are shot all the way up to the top, where you can enjoy the views from all direction - including through the glass panel floor! WHHAAAA! Fear of heights alert! Take your time and don't be rushed, and take in the view of Shanghai.
  • Central location and you can find other info on your own...it's too famous lol . Supermarket has good selections just with higher prices.
  • I feel that Shanghai is a city of contrast. Two widely different poles intersecting in a chaotic way. Old meets new. Modern meets old school. Refined meets raw. Cross over the Huangpu and here I am in the middle of Lujiazui, an epitome of modern Shanghai. Brightly lit with skyscrapers that are amongst the tallest in the world (in the same spot!), much of the area are either malls or offices as this is the business district. From so up close, the 3 towers stand like “brothers” in arms, watchful over Shanghai. I’m getting nervous just looking at them.
