Review & Tips
- What do tour experts/visitors say about this place?

  • Take a Huangpu Cruise tour and see the beautiful sights of this tower. If you experience the night cruise of Huangpu River, the sceneries at night are more distinctive and wonderful.
  • To make the best of your visit to SWFC, make sure you go on the clearest of clear days. Otherwise, the view will be a major disappointment. (Quote from Trip Advisor )
  • At 1,555 ft high, the top observation deck at the Shanghai World Financial Center is a great stop during your visit to Shanghai. The top deck has a glass floor that gives you a strange feeling as you step off the lift. Very clean, and memorable experience. (Quote from Trip Advisor )
  • It is a little expensive but GO FOR IT. it was great and it is the highest observation deck in the world so you have to expect to pay a little more. (Quote from Trip Advisor )
