Compared to Chicago Willis Tower of NYC One World Trade Center, the entrance is about half price. But the experience is one of a kind. Superb engineering and fantastic views!

Except the Maison Lameloise which is quite good I heard, but very expensive. The observatory which is very high. But frankly, better to wait a few years and have the tower filled. Then it will make sense.

Most metro cities have Sky scrappers that allow you view of the city. In Shanghai, this is a good choice. Take the fast lift to the top and enjoy fantastic panoramic view of the city.

I'm fascinated by tall buildings, so ascending the second tallest building in the world on the fastest elevator in the world was an absolute must. My family didn't agree, so I did it solo. And it was worth it. The views were spectacular. So cool.

World's second tallest building offers an 360 panoramic view of Shanghai and overlooks the Bund. World's fastest elevator sprints you to the top. Enjoy lunch and souvenirs on top of Shanghai.

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

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.
