Opened in the middle of 2008, this China tours
tapering, 101-story, 492m-high (1,614-ft.) glass tower, resembling a giant, old-fashioned bottle opener, is the tallest building in China, and the tallest in the world, vis-a-vis the height to which visitors can ascend -- which, in this case, is the stunning, all-glass 100th-floor observatory at a height of 474m (1,555 ft.). (The building, designed by American architect William Pedersen and developed by Minoru Mori and the Mori Group, which built the Roppongi Hills complex in Tokyo, is technically the third tallest in the world.) The rarefied air and views from up top are unparalleled, but can be stomach-churning for those prone to vertigo. The 94th-floor exhibition space, and the 97th-floor skybridge are nothing special, but the tony Park Hyatt Hotel on the 79th to 93rd floors is certainly good for a meal or drink after your visit, as are the restaurants in the basement.
The Music Room on the 92nd floor of the Shanghai World Financial Centre (SWFC) has also Yangtze River cruises started holding a ladies night every Wednesday between 8:30pm and 10:30pm.
During this period, ladies will have free access to the observatory floor as well as unlimited refills of sparkling wine. With free wine and free live performances every Wednesday night, the Shangri-la travel highest bar in the world promises to take its customers to new heights. For men who want to accompany their lady friend, the admission fee is 100 rmb per person.
On the 100th floor of the Shanghai World Financial Center Observatory, the top tier of a three-layer observatory is 1,555 feet up and still the world’s highest. Architecture geeks will love it for the fact that it spans the building’s most distinctive Shanghai tour package feature, the rectangular cutout that makes the whole building resemble a giant bottle opener.
