Make sure to give yourself enough time to go up the tower, look at the sights, and visit the museum after you come down the elevator. It's a nice walk through the Shanghai streets.

Over crowded, bad management, spent 2 hours waiting in line. No warning before buying tickets. Spend your time somewhere else. People are pushing you and trying to getting in front of you.

Views were spectacular I would say the revolving restaurant for lunch is over rated and over priced for the experience, can't comment on dinner sorry. But the views are spectacular - definitely worth a visit just avoid the restaurant!!! Also visit early in the day...More

Definitely, it's a must see place in Shanghai. I enjoyed a scenic (and a little bit terrifying) view from the top level. There are two drawbacks in my opinion: 1) windows are not very clean, so it's somewhat difficult to take pictures; 2) you might...More

We had to queue for more than 2 hours, in different queues. All the windows are dirty, so don't expect many good photographs!

No need to book. Best time depends on weather, whether there is visibility or not and if you like day or night. Night is magic in Shanghai but you don't need to be high to enjoy the night skyline.
