Long queue, expensive price to go to the top of a radio tower? No thank you, I would recommend visiting any of the for free tall buildings around the city and this one is beautiful outside ;)

This building is definitly worth seeing - from the outside. Its an iconic building of the Shanghai skyline so you'll want some nice photos of it, but you don't need to go up it. I picked a bad time - Saturday afternoon in Summer, and...More

The greatest city view - Wonderful place to take panoramic photos and enjoy the city view. Inside the Tower in the ground floor you will find many shops with very interesting things to buy as gifts or souvenirs in good prices..

You have and can read all the reviews and see the pictures. I will try to give you an useful perspective. Many want to see Shanghai at nite and attempt to see it from the Pearl. In reality there are better places to do that,...More

I have been to Shanghai a couple times and seeing this tower did not get old. I was still amazed at its architecture. I will say that the most recent visit dwarfed this icon. Going to the top of the Shanghai Tower made paying to...More

Great views of the city. Be sure to take the stairs to the transparent viewing platform - will take all your courage to step onto it, but so worth it!

Definitely worth a visit, there are great views from the top of the tower. The price is pretty expensive and we didn't bother going right to the top, only half way. You can see all of the world banks and the river.

The view from up here is absolutely amazing, however the design remains a bit questionable. It's not the most beautiful thing.

No need to book. Best time depends on weather, whether there is visibility or not and if you like day or night. Night is magic in Shanghai but you don't need to be high to enjoy the night skyline.
