  • 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.
  • Viewing the city from 474 meters above is a great experience. It's one of the best scenes in Shanghai. The elevator runs 8 m/s, one of the fastest in the world. The ticket is much cheaper than the Oriental Pearl Tower.
  • Nice tower I work in that has Jin Xuan, mon Chou Chou,crystal jade , and din tai Fung.
  • Going to the top of the skyscraper gives a great view on the city and the waterfront, but the queue is truly massive
  • Great building. It is overpriced to go to observation deck. But I did it and the view was great. I expected more.
