Official website is located here: http://swfc-shanghai.com

On the website, they say the Observatory is scheduled to open on August 30, 2008.

Fees aren't published yet. Opening hours: 8:00am - 11:00pm (temporary and no admission after 10:30pm)



There's a special website of the SWFC Observatory: http://www.swfc-observatory.com

That observation deck is to die for...BTW, the only thing I do miss about the old design was the feature that it had a Ferris-Wheel around the circle.

I was planning to go to Shanghai next year, but after the confirmation of Shanghai Center (and specially after heving seen the renders), I guess its better to wait a couple of years.

I love that website! It's so innovative! I wonder if there still some office space left or is it already full?

Somewhat belatedly but when I saw that photo of the SWFC 'eclipsing' the sun, it was a Woah moment.

Absolutely stunning

No, go now! Shanghai changes so fast you won't want to miss it. It'll be a whole different place in 2014.
