    It is a must see place if you want to take a great look of many things in Shanghai. It has some observation levels, at 263 m you have a glass floor, really amazing to watch the city at your feet.

    This is a great place to get an awesome view of the Shanghai skyline. Go on their glass floors for an amazing view of Century Ave.

    Be prepared for lines. The entrance for the Upper Level (¥220) is about 45 min. & is only the beginning. Line to the next elevator, then more, then to get the heck down and out. Enjoy the view.

    A long queue forms under the tower everyday, but the waiting pays off. The view will leave you breathless and glass floors will turn your legs into a jelly. A must-see for all Shanghai visitors.

    Lost my wallet near the ticket stand. And the next day I returned and someone had turned in!! Staff was very concerned and helpful (With the help of Google Translate). I'm incredibly grateful.

    Buy the full ticket it's worth it but avoid weekends and national holidays it can get really crowded. Don't miss the outdoors floor on the lowest ball. Good for pictures, no glass.

    Might not be the tallest climb but it is definitely the most fun. Get the cheaper ticket (B ticket - 160RMB), and enjoy the "Transparent Observatory" at the top with its amazing glass floor!

    Enjoy the view from one of the most famous buildings of Shanghai. If you are not afraid of heights visit the upper observation platform which has an area with a glass floor.

    The exhibition on the 0 meter level is definitely one of my favorite places in Shanghai. Lujiazui area is also worth going.

    One of the touristic (and not only) spot to see the amazing city of Shanghai. Take a full tour of the Tower.

    Awesome views of Shanghai. Fee is not cheap if you take full tour of the tower but worth it

    View is amazing! Underground museum very good as well! Don't suggest restaurant there - cool rotating system, but overpriced a lot.

    Something to consider for maybe your 10th or 11th visit to Shanghai, possibly you live here. Or maybe just stay away. Views are good but you have to fight hordes of people and a poor layout.

    Is not worth going all the way to the sky capsule. Just get the 120rmb ticket and enjoy the view from 285m and the glass floor

    Skip the top floor, hit the observation deck and roller coaster, and municipal museum in basement. Avoid weekends etc, gets nuts.

    Museum of Urban History is quite interesting, although I'd have liked more actual artifacts. Try to avoid groups of wilding Chinese schoolchildren, who will not hesitate to shove you aside.

    The best view is on the second level) the third "space" level can be omitted)

    2.5 hour wait after ticket purchase around 6 pm. Come early to avoid long waits. 160 rmb for tower and 299 for tower and boat ride.

    THE landmark of Shanghai, very unique design, which stands out from the skyline. I love its retro sci-fi vibe :) 🇨🇳

    The Shanghai Municipal History Museum in the basement of the tower is my favorite in Shanghai.

    Alright, the view is astonishing! However, the pushy rude people, insanely long lines, & the unsupervised brats ruin the whole experience. Prices are insane but worth it at least once if in Shanghai.

    Nice shops for souvenirs at the top of the tower. Glass observation deck is not to be missed.
  • Mohammad الفيلكاوي
    Check the forecast whether there are fog or no before try the on top experience

    Looks funky from afar. Take a closer look and you can see it is coming of age and the concrete looks dodgy.

    Observation deck at the World Financial Center is a much more organized, enjoyable experience and view is better. Do not go here unless you love long waits, pushy tourists and confined spaces.

    Had high expectation. Ended up disappointed. Views weren't great bcos of bad interior lighting creating reflections. Glasses had lots of scratches. Perhaps wouldn't hv prob during day time. Pricey 🎫

    For those who love vertigo-inducing thrills, the tower features a 360-degree glass floor just 90 metres above the ground.

    Great views. Top deck windows aren't that clear. But the level below 260 is the place to be ;)

    Shanghai Museum of Urban History on the lobby floor is strongly recommended for everyone who was born or lives or interested in Shanghai.
