We'll see. I just hope there weren't any changes.

So it looks like these observation floors are higher than the observation floors in the Shanghai Tower. Is it ever possible to see Shanghai from Suzhou?

It's about 80km from Suzhou CBD to central Shanghai - so on a clear day it should be possible.

Interesting, this tower and Burj Khalifa both have observation floors on level 124. This one is 90 metres higher up though. Of course Burj Khalifa has many apartment floors, which are lower than office floors, but 90 metres is still a big difference.

Even better idea. A zip line from the top of this tower to the Shanghai tower.

I am happy when I see Suzhou downtown on what is called a clear day here. Forget to see Shanghai downtown OK

True, my office is about 2 miles from Shanghai tower, I tell people I have a view of the pudong Skyline, but a lot of the time I can't see it.
