The elevator goes up at an speed of 9 meters per second. View of the Huangpu River from the 88th floor is fantastic. Not as high as the 100-floor convention center on the opposite, but the queue is much shorter. Suggest you watch the night view, then go to the Oriental Pearl TV Tower to see the Huangpu River.

A symbolic architecture of Shanghai City with 88 floors and panoramic view of Huangpu River, Pudong area, Oriental Pearl TV Tower and the Bund. The night view is especially spectacular.

This soon-to-be-the-second-highest-building-in-Shanghai is a nice (and expensive) place to spend your evenings. There are several bars, among which the most popular one is Cloud Nine on the top (88th) floor. I you don’t have a reservation it might be difficult to get in though, so if you can settle for a lower altitude there is a nice piano bar on the 53 floor as well. I is located a bit off in Pudong, but the view over Shanghai is spectacular.
