  • 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.

  • 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.
