  • Our tour guide took us to the 100th floor observation tower. There are also offices and a hotel in the building. Amazing views of the Shanghai skyline.

  • As an architect who grew up admiring many of the world's tallest towers, getting to see this amazing tower in person was a dream come true. Save your money for the Shanghai tower viewing deck. If you want to go visit the SWFC, there are bars inside on really high levels. I would really recommend that. I had a few beers with a colleague up there and it was incredible.
  • We have been to many observatories and this has been one of our favorite. Sheer glass and modernity from the futuristic elevator to the all glass deck that you can see below and beyond. Best to visit at dusk and stop by the cafe until evening to catch two views for the price of one.
