  • The height of the observation deck is only 259 meters. When buying tickets offer to visit two viewing platforms for 220 yuan or one for 180 yuan. Take one. It is it with a glass floor that makes it interesting and cool. The second is 10 meters above but the windows are small and dirty. I don't recommend it. And of course you have to decide for yourself what's best. 259 meters and a glass floor or near Shanghai Tower with a height of 560 meters. If the money is not sorry then I would advise to go and there and there. Which I did. The cost of Shanghai Tower is also 180 yuan.

  • It is one of the most iconic sites of Shanghai and so easily recognizable as one of the staples of China, I went in the summer and the view was amazing, nothing like anything you’ve ever seen. The chance to go on one of these skyscrapers and see the view of one of the most industrialized cites in the world from above is an unmissable experience. There was also a temporary exhibition of fish was an unexpected favorite part of trip which was a very moving metaphor for genetic modification and human influence on nature.
  • A must go tourist place for experiencing a walk on glass at 350 meters height. It's a nice experience. The whole area is wonderful The surrounding buildings, the circled walkway to cross the road, escalators in open . The view from top is nice. Being at this place is a nice experience.
