Shanghai (part 5, incl. world's highest observation deck)

All photos taken 26 Mar to 9 Apr 2009.

Shanghai World Financial Center (SWFC) has world's highest observation deck at 474 meters, higher than Toronto's CN Tower observatory at 447 meters.

1. SWFC, you can see the three observation deck levels.


3. Sky Walk 97 at 439 meters.

4. Two weeks with no good clear sky so in the end I visited SWFC two days before my departure.

5. Sky Walk 100 at 474 meters.


7. Jin Mao Tower right next to SWFC.

8. Glass floors in the middle of the Sky Walk 100.


10. Philosophical poetry or just Chinglish?


12. Sky Arena 94 at 423 meters.


14. High-tech toilets at 423 meters high.





19. Looking left...

20. ...and right.

21. One of the ferries that cross the river.


23. Jin Mao Tower's atrium.






29. HSBC Building from 1923 and clock tower of the Customs House from 1927, both on the Bund.




33. Oriental Pearl Tower.


35. Rush hour in the metro.

36. Cloud Nine mall with in the basement a Carrefour supermarket.

37. Large video screen as eyecatcher in the Xujiahui shopping area.

Extremely interesting... I was thinking and dreaming of visiting Shanghai for years now but still haven't managed. It seems I'll definitely do this in 2010. Thank you very much for the tour. I had a great pleasure viewing all parts so far
