Not the highest building in Shanghai, but possibly the one with the best view of the Bund, Pudong and way beyond. Queuing is a bit uncomfortable because it's underground and the surroundings are black... Also, only one lift was working which made for a longer...More

The Shanghai World Fnancial Center is a ultra modern 101 storie skyscraper. Business, conference center, retail, and restaurants as well as a Park Hyatt Hotel in the 80-90 floor area. The structure has a cap on top representing heaven and earth.

Don’t rush to the elevator! The exhibits at the bottom about skyscrapers all over the world, and about the construction of this skyscraper, are fascinating. At the top, try the VR experience. It’s pretty darn good. Try to go at night if the air quality...More

Great, unobstructed views of the city - you can walk around the entire viewing area for a 360-degree perspective. We were there on a clear night, so we got to see the city lights at their finest. Well worth a visit.

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
