    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!

    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.

    A must visit while in Shanghai, and walk on glass hundreds of meter of street

    imo it's a pretty ugly tower, but it's iconic...

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

    The greatest attraction in Shanghai, very good view when lights are on. Great tourist view!

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

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

    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.

    Check the forecast whether there are fog or no before try the on top experience

    Don't waste money to go to the top sphere. Middle sphere is the main point

    Shanghai Museum of Urban History is the only worthy place here. Too many people. Dirty windows. If you want to see Shanghai from height, then don't waste you money here and go to SWFC.

    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.

    Şangay demek bura demektir. If you say I am in shanghai, you must see pearl tower. Cam bölmeye kesinlikle uğrayın

    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.

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

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

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

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

    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.

    Fantastic! And do not forget to go to the restaurant

    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.

    The food here isn't that great for the price in the revolving restaurant and the wait is ridiculous. They charge for water! Yes, water! Only bottled; no tap. #fail

    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.

    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.

    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

    The line was a waste of time...if you really wanna see the city, from the tower, try to go early in the morning...

    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.

    Not worth the money. The lines are absolutely obscene. Space capsule so tacky. Lack of AC.

    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.

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

    Too crowded, it takes at least 1 hour to get at top and there is nothing special to see.

    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.

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

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

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