This is once in a lifetime experience. Everyone who is visiting the city shall take some time off and visit this place for sure. The 70USD ticket fee seems too high but once reach the transparent deck it is worth it. The glass deck is the main attraction here and other than that the views from the upper deck are mesmerizing. There are few souvenir shops also available to make your trip more memorable. Also within the tour you can visit a couple of museums below.
Most characteristic building in Shanghai. Building made only as tourist attraction. The best choice is to visit in at clear night. On sightseeing platform there's a glass floor, so some people feel really afraid to go on it.
