See Shanghai from above! The observation deck at Jin Mao Tower sits on the 88th floor and is one of the tallest buildings in the world.
The building was designed by Chicago-based architect Adrian R. Smith, who also designed famous landmarks like Burj Khalifa in Dubai and Zifeng Tower in China. Smith aimed to create a large structure that would combine traditional Chinese style with the new architectural trends of the time. It’s safe to say he accomplished his goal with the 1,380ft tall marvel that attracts millions of visitors each year.
What you get:
Your Jin Mao Tower tickets will allow you access to the observation deck. Zoom up to the 88th floor in the high-speed elevators. It’ll take you only 45 seconds to get from the ground floor to the 88th. Once there, you can enjoy 360-degree views of Shanghai’s financial district. You can even peak through the internal windows and look down through all 88 floors of the building. Make sure you have your camera, there will be plenty of photo ops.
Jin Mao Tower is more than just an observation deck – it’s also home to offices, a shopping mall and the Grand Hyatt Shanghai hotel. After your trip to the top, make some time to shop around or admire the traditional Chinese-style architecture throughout the complex.
