  • The World Financial Center Observatory is an Observatory in which you can enjoy the best view of all Shanghai. With 492 meters of height eirigiendose as the second skyscraper more high of the city, this features of two types of entries. In an of them, can access to the floor number 100 (the more recommended), of which you can view all Shanghai to the end. Has of a floor of glass with views partial of the soil where practically are visible the cars more not them people and walk on the glass produces a certain feeling of adrenaline. Your ticket also includes the visit to the temporary exhibition of the month/season, and you can also view the city from 97 and 94 floors. My recommendation is that go in a day cleared or sunny and minutes prior to the sunset, so can have a double perception of the city, both of day as of night. The city at night becomes impressive, since most of the buildings in the Skyline of Shanghai have flashing lights and animations that give them life.

  • The view is definitely worth the price of admission! I was up to 2 hours before sunset and enjoyed the time after sunset. A unique experience of how to change the colors of the city. The glass floor is a disappointment because it is very narrow. Still 100% recommendation in decent weather!

  • 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.
