Even though height-wise it is now overshadowed by its near neighbours the World Financial Centre and Shanghai Tower the Jin Mao is beautifully decorative and has a most attractive façade. Arguably it is the most pleasing skyscraper in the city. Our rental apartment was in Pudong so the lovely edifice was frequently in our sight line, in all light and... More

Took in this attraction as part of our ticket on the Hop-on Hop-off bus tour. We were unlucky that it was a rainy cloudy day, but the view was still spectacular. Loved the view of all of Shanghai, and the East bank high rise looks awesome from up there. Worth doing.

We all enjoyed going to the top of the tower and standing on the glass floor. Amazing views from here

This hosts a popular hotel and a observatory with sky walk. On expensive side but shanghai is popular for Skyskrapers so cant be missed.

Great views of the city. Hotels provide little brochures on famous buildings on both sides of the river in the city, so you can spot these buildings from the tower. Souvenirs available weren't interesting, though. The Hyatt view available was superb.

The tower is a multifunctional building including a hotel . The ticket is a bit on the high side, as is the skywalk. You get a couple of good pictures on a clear day, waste of money on a cloudy day

This is worth visiting. The observation deck on the 88th floor is reached from the ground floor by a lift in 40 seconds. There are 2 higher towers in Shanghai, but this one is high enough. The view outside is dizzying, but the view down the inside is strangely worse.

88 floors at 9metres a second now that's fast. Great way to see all the other wonderful architecture in Shanghai and the lay out of the city.

You can even look into the lobby of the Grand Hyatt below. I also used the ATM at the bank on the 1st level to get local currency.

This building is a gorgeous Art Deco-style building. We love coming here and highly recommend Cloud Nine, a bar on the 85th floor. It's a great place for evening drinks to see the Bund and the Pearl Tower next door (along with the Shanghai Tower and Bottle Opener). Afternoon tea here is also nice. We booked at Cloud Nine for...

Staying in Lujiazui

Neighbourhood Profile
Lujiazui
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 be found in the neighborhood. While everyone on the famous Bund side of the river gazes in awe at these amazing structures, all the buildings here, as well as Lujiazui’s riverside promenade, offer great views of the historic buildings all along the Puxi side. The Lujiazui park often hosts music festivals throughout the year, and park goers can party and stroll in the shadow of some of the world’s tallest buildings.
