When going to the 118th floor of this building, a great view of the city awaits. Traveling up and down goes pretty fast with the elevator. We bought a ticket as a combination ticket at the tourist tunnel that crosses the river. This saved us...More

When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline,
it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are
speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are
located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring
road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic
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

I walk at a pretty good pace so for me it seemed like a short walk. You can cover quite a bit of the distance on an elevated walking platform with no exposure to vehicle traffic. It should be about 10 to 15 minutes.

180 yuan. About £20 so $30 each. You can take the ferry from The Bund and walk. Ferry is 2 yuan each way. Or you can take the tourist tunnel which is about 40 yuan. Different but not that exciting.

No need to buy online. There was no queue at all when we went in the morning. No queue for elevators either.
