The Shanghai Tower

501 Yincheng Middle Rd.

At over two thousand feet high, the Shanghai Tower is a sight to behold. But, the colossal structure is even better experienced from its sightseeing deck, which is the highest in Shanghai. Completed in 2015, the building is the tallest in China and the second highest in the world (behind Dubai’s Burj Khalifa), and features a stunning curved design, meant to minimize the force of winds. Not yet open to the public, the tower will house hotels, offices, retail space and the aforementioned sightseeing tower, which is the primary draw for visitors.
