This place is must see. Accessible by public transport (Sunway/Bus). Go on a day when there is less pollution.

From the 87th deck floor one can admire shanghai on sunny days (and hopefully with no pollution). Good tip: go to B1 and B2 to find a food court with a large choice of food for very cheap prices. Note that it is a bit crowded from 11:30 AM to around 1 PM. if you don't speak chinese you can... More

It was an amazing visit there. It's simply breath taking feeling at the top of the tower. Tickets are available and one can buy the ticket on spot. At ground floor there a description of the tower along with other tallest tower in the world. Lift was so fast (18 meter/sec) to go on top.

I think it is a must do in Shanghai, it gives you such perspective of the size of the city. However, it is expensive for what it is. We probably only spent 40mins there in total. There are staff everywhere to help and guide. The time-lapse video at the beginning showing the building development between New York, Shanghai and Tokyo... More

Choose a clear day and the views are exceptional. There are views from the 94th floor but pay the extra to get to the very top with the glass to ceiling windows, it is spectacular.

We visited the Park Hyatt for a wedding. It's almost as high as the viewing gallery, but it has a lovely bar and you can have a couple of drinks for the price of admission to the gallery. Great place to watch the sunset and the lightshow of the surrounding buildings.

The building with a square hole one the top As they say it ... it is always included in every tour. But very frankly.. it is expensive and just not worth it.

What an experience we looked at the exhibition of the tallest buildings in the world then went onto understand the construction. We took the lift to 119 floor in less than a minute we arrived! The views were amazing and you could feel slight movement in the building. All very efficient and the staff very helpful. A definite for any... More

We visited here to go up the Shanghai tower which is currently the largest building in China, the lift which goes up at 18metres a second and comes down at 10metres a second is impressive enough but the views when you are at the top are unbelievalbe!

Staying in Lujiazui

Neighbourhood Profile
When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline, it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic bars fill the highrises around the area. As is characteristic of a world-class financial business district, some of Shanghai’s best malls and hotels can be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
