From Shanghai Daily

THE Shanghai Tower will open its sightseeing platform on the 119th floor to the public in a soft opening in June, an official said yesterday.

Visitors will be able to take three high-speed elevators to reach the 560-meter-high platform within a minute in the 632-meter, 137-floor skyscraper — the world’s second tallest.

The platform will feature souvenir stores, a post office and exhibition areas, said officials.

They said the ticket price has yet to be decided.

Visitors will be able to reach the 126th floor, the highest available for access. The levels above contain a 1,000-ton domestically made damping system, said to be the world’s most advanced, to keep the skyscraper stable in strong winds.

Costing 15 billion yuan (US$2.5 billion), the Shanghai Tower in the Lujiazui financial hub of the Pudong New Area is the world’s second tallest building, after the 829.8m Burj Khalifa in Dubai. It is set to open this year.

Tickets for the sightseeing platform in the nearby Jin Mao Tower are 120 yuan (US$19.3) and 180 yuan for the Shanghai World Financial Center.

That's a bit expensive to see even by Western standard.

I wouldn't say so.
Adult tickets for The Shard in London do cost £ 32,95 = $ 49,83 = € 43,14 = Yuan 305,11.

Keep in mind SWFC is world's 2nd highest observation deck (was 1st before Canton Tower was built). The price reflects that.

I'll try again

So, this, what we are seeing, is the top of this damping system, in the bottom,
surrounded by the crown, LED displays ?

Also ESB top deck is $ 46 and main deck is $ 29 (even Top of the Rock is $ 27)

I think they have cheaper tickets for Oriental Pearl obs.
