This is a great place to walk around at night when everything is lit up. They had it really done up for Chinese New Years. Very clean, very safe and lots of great views of the big buildings.

What a magnificent beacon to lead the way. Having seen photos, thought I'd be prepared for our arrival on the Bund to see this. But coming up the stairs in the misty haze to see it took my breath away. What an amazing structure from...More

We visit the Tower every time we are in Shanghai (from the tallest to not that isn't the tallest building). We went on a weekday evening, so the line to go up the tower was very short. Make sure you plan a day, because there...More

The OPT is a bit of a spectacle with Coca-Cola polar bear shops, trinkets of every imaginable variety, long lines and dirty windows. Of course, if you have the stomach for it the transparent floor observatory is unique and fun, and the views are amazing....More

Most people tended to go to the Pearl but it makes it very crowded with people pushing and its very expensive as well. Its worth a couple of pictures but thats about it.

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.
