Nice to visit, attraction is when you go high in the lift and it gives you feel that you are going toward such a high rise.

I didn't get into the interior of this building, but I walked around the building and see it from the 360 view from Shanghai Tower where I could even see the top of the building! For design lovers, this buiding is beautiful and should be categorised as one of the icons in Shanghai.

Great views from the 100th floor, especially if you get a clear day without haze. We went quite early and visibility was reasonable, although it deteriorated during our visit. They offer a CNY 60 reduction for seniors aged over 60.

I recommend paying to reach the higher floors, where it is less crowded. The hundredth floor is suspended above the other floors and the floor is glass, which is cool if you are not afraid of heights. Only drawback is it is pretty hot on sunny days.

We done the bus tour and got the opportunity to take in the sights and incredible skyscrapers the city has to offer at the world financial centre. A must when in Shanghai.

OK. you pay your money and get zipped to the top. Then you gingerly step to the glass edge and look down. Boy, this is really high and WOW the city looks fantastic; the lights are amazing and are so so bright. Now it is time to step back and head for the elevator to fall back to earth.. remember...

This is a great building in style and function, great restaurants and the Park Hyatt are just a few high points. The observation deck is quite impressive as well. We also really enjoy afternoon tea at on the 91st floor.

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.
