  • The financial soars upwards representing the growth of the financial sector in Shanghai and the power of China.  more »
  • Go up to the 95th floor, then up to the 100th floor observation deck. Can be a little crowded and noisy, but well worth the visit just for the view.  more »

  • 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.
  • It was a great experience to stand on the glass floor. I also did a hand stand (one hand) on the glass floor. A nice view from the building and from the glass. The elevator is also a some kind of art and a fast one.
