【Jin Mao Tower: Experience the Extreme Speed Elevator】
The two direct elevators running at 9.1 meters per second in Jin Mao Tower are called “time shuttles”, and they can reach the top of the building in just 45 seconds. The glass curtain wall on the sightseeing floor has a wide field of vision. Leaning on the railing, you can see the urban scenery on both sides of the Huangpu River and the magnificent scenery of the Yangtze River Estuary. There is also a love post office in the sightseeing hall, where you can send a postcard to him and share with him the scenery and mood at the moment
[World Financial Center: Overlooking the Panorama of Magic City]
The World Financial Center is one of the “Three High-rise Buildings in Shanghai”. Its unique shape resembling a “corkscrew” is particularly eye-catching among the high-rise buildings in Lujiazui. The Sightseeing Hall on the 100th floor is a prime location overlooking the panoramic view of the Magic City. Not only can you look up at the spire of the Oriental Pearl, you can step on the hanging sightseeing corridor and enjoy the scenery on both sides of the Pujiang River through the transparent glass under your feet. There was a surge of pride and joy that “I will be the top of the mountain, and I will see the mountains and small mountains”.
Oriental Pearl Tower
Puxi, the west side of Shanghai, has the city’s historic buildings, and Pudong, to the east, has its skyscrapers. These are concentrated in the Lujiazui neighborhood, just across from the Bund. Jin Mao Tower stands 88 floors high (8 is an auspicious number), a postmodern spin on a classic 13-tier Buddhist pagoda design. Zoom to the tower’s 88th-floor observation deck in just 45 seconds and take in the 360-degree views, or skip the line and settle into a window seat at Grand Hyatt’s 87th-floor Cloud 9 bar. Just across the street is Shanghai World Financial Center, often jokingly called “The Bottle Opener.” It has three observation decks, the highest of which is on the 100th floor. The view from the top is thrilling—on a clear day, you’ll feel as if you’re floating above the city, and when it’s overcast, it’s as if you’re adrift in the clouds. As with Jin Mao Tower, you can skip the crowds of the observation deck by going for tea or a drink at Park Hyatt’s 87th-floor Living Room. Shanghai Tower—China’s tallest building and world’s second tallest—is not yet open to the public.
ShangHai Aquarium: World’s longest underwater tunnel
The Bund Sightseeing Tunnel is one of Shanghai’s strangest attractions. Located beneath the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, you travel under the Huangpu River by train for the most psychedelic trip of your life. Compartments on the train are completely transparent, so you can see all around, and the sound system changes as much as the colors. It takes about 5 minutes to go through the tunnel, plus it’s a great chance for memorable vacation photos.
ShangHai Night Acrobatic Show
a fantastic acrobatic show in the evening after your day tour. This is the best show in China with a spectacular environment and features sophisticated athletic performers! A must see activity if you have time. Price: $45 USD/person from
