thanks for sharing kix, took photos of random westerners. LOL

But I must also complement the elevators though (the colour and lighting), is there anything to top this one? Any photos?

Now I know what I'm going to do when I get to Shanghai for the first time: up to the observatory in the daytime and then up again AT NIGHT, then up to the Jin Mao, then wander about the city etc. etc.

Peloso,

Go up there 45 minutes or so before the sun starts to set, and then stay until it's dark. It will provide the best lighting conditions for photos and views.
The "magic hour" in Shanghai is generally really spectacular.

Ok sir, but do you know how long is one allowed to stay in the observatory before he's requested to leave? Isn't there a time limit? Because otherwise I may end up mesmerized and spend the night there.

I've never heard of anyone being thrown out (neither literally or otherwise ) from an observation deck for having stayed there too long! You'll be fine.
