    Ctrip booked tickets. On the morning of national day, go to the Shanghai center, 501 Yingcheng Road, Lujiazui, Pudong. Pre-booked tickets from Ctrip to 118 floors, the first 160 yuan, 20 yuan less than the site. The weather of that day. The clouds are thicker and the sun reaches the center of Shanghai. When we arrived at the sightseeing hall, the fog was heavy outside the window and the sun gradually appeared. An hour later, we turned clockwise along the transformation hall and the sun came out. The fog dissipated and the scenery became more beautiful. Warehousing security check. Come to the building, when you enter the garage, there are guards asking to drive behind the car for inspection, and there are police dogs coming. It was released in less than five seconds. Automatic ticket collection. Take the elevator to the lobby on the first floor, turn left, enter the door and type in the order number on the automatic equipment, then get the paper admission ticket and enter the door accordingly. The entrance is a spacious hall. Walking left, you can see the super high-rise buildings of Dubai, London, New York, Chicago, Manila, Taipei and other cities. The exhibition hall on the first floor. Go further inside, see stereo photoelectric display, "skyline", "skyscraper", "world tall building", "gene pool" and "vertical city" several units, introduced the Shanghai central project planning, bidding, construction process. Sightseeing lift. Then it took 55 seconds to take the fastest elevator in the world, from the first floor lobby to the 118th floor sightseeing hall, and 70 seconds to finish the tour from 118 to the first floor. Go one step further. Fortunately today, the 119th floor is also open. Upon going up, I found a multi-functional hall with a coffee chair table. In the course of nearly two hours of sightseeing, we took pictures and left a good memory. Overall, the management, service and hardware here are equivalent, very strict, warm, the waiter's smile is close to the standard of stewardess, parking is conscientious, 8 yuan per hour, I stopped nearly 150 minutes, pay 20 yuan.

    Stand on the top of the magic capital. The best way to get to know a city as soon as possible is undoubtedly to overlook it from a high altitude. Shanghai Central Building has three super-high-speed elevators, the fastest elevator in the world so far, rising at 18 meters per second. In 55 seconds, it can reach the observation deck on the 119th floor from the 2nd floor of the ground floor. Standing on the top of the magic capital, it seems that from here, we can see that Shanghai has developed from a small fishing village to today's high-rise buildings, changing with each passing day. The top of Shanghai is well-known. This height is a small view of the mountains. At a glance, the high-rise scenery on both sides of the Huangpu River can be seen clearly. With the change of time, the light and shadow also change in different ways. The most beautiful moment is just like sunset when the weather is fine. The whole devil seems to be covered with a golden light. Later in the night, when the neon flashes, thousands of lights light up. At that time, the fascinating and brilliant lights of the whole city appear and disappear in the floating clouds, which seems to be able to better understand the real meaning of the magic capital.

    [Top of Shanghai] The Shanghai Central Building has been open for a long time. It's really exciting to have the chance to visit it this time. The 118th floor is the highest tourist hall in Shanghai at present. It can enjoy the charming panorama of Shanghai from a 360-degree perspective. Oriental Pearl, Jinmao Tower, global financial center and so on. There are many views on both sides of Pujiang. There is also an air post office on the top of Shanghai, which is the highest post office in the world at present. You can choose one for yourself or your relatives and friends, and send your wishes. It is also very meaningful. Because of the day's weather, the clouds are thicker and a little hazy, so it looks hazy. So it's very important to choose a good weather. This will improve visibility and clarity, and make taking pictures more attractive. In addition, the elevator of the building is very fast. It only takes 55 seconds (546 meters) to go up and the highest speed is 18 meters per second. So the ears will be a little uncomfortable. Remember to swallow saliva will ease. If you have time, you'd better stay till the end of the night, because the night of Modu is the most beautiful. I have to look forward to the next time because of the lack of time. Tickets: 180 yuan, online purchase 160 yuan address: Shanghai Pudong New Area Yincheng Road 501 (near Dongtai Road) Opening time: 8:30-22:00

    Fierce years ago, the devil's capital became empty city, and its peak was staggered to the top of the Shanghai Center Building, Asia's first and second largest in the world. Looking down from the top, the night scenery of the devil's capital is dazzling. It's sunny and hazy today. You can see it clearly from a distance. Visit at 5 p.m. and light the two sides of the Pujiang River at 6 p.m. to take pictures of the magic capital before and after the lights are on.

    This two days ago, the ticket is 180, it seems that the old people with ID cards can be discounted, after entering the level after level, the most annoying thing is to force you to take pictures, do not need it at all? The super ugliness of the picture is not to say, the picture is a little bit big, you need to pay more for big repairs, it's really annoying. The elevator was super fast and then deaf, and the ears were terrible. Ha ha ha ha....................................... The sightseeing hall on the 118th floor is looking down from above. It's not much fun inside.

    My 13-year-old son felt very good when he went to the top of Shanghai. I was very glad to choose this scenic spot. He also enjoyed the pleasure of reaching the top floor quickly. The scenery around him was very beautiful. There were many tall buildings and cars like toy rickshaws. Today, there are not many people in the new year's Eve, and the weather is also strong. There is no rain, so the view is not affected.

    The scenery is very beautiful. Wednesday night at 5:00, people do not have to queue. It is suggested to check the sunset time of the day and enter half an hour earlier. In this way, the sun and night can be seen, and sunset can be seen if the weather is fine. The first floor is the introduction of all kinds of Niubi in the building, and you can't see it when you come down. People who like it can go in and see it more than 10 minutes in advance and then go up.

    546 meters high China's top! You can overlook three little brothers next to you. Jinmao Tower! Global Financial Center! The Yangtze River is rolling eastward in the north! The Huangpu River is winding from the southwest! I still like to take risks!

    Shanghai Central Building is the second tallest building in the world and the first tallest building in China. It stands in the center of Lujiazui. The observatory of the Shanghai center is called "the top of Shanghai". The 118 floor in the center of Shanghai is 546 meters high, and it takes 1 minutes to reach the elevators in the Guinness world record. Here you can have a bird's eye view of Shanghai. Whether it's a clear sky, clouds, sunset or bright stars, Shanghai is very beautiful in front of you. It is recommended that you take photos at the northwest corner of the viewing platform. Another landmark in Shanghai, the Oriental Pearl, is very nice to take a picture with it. On the viewing platform, you can also play the VR experience game and take photos of the climbing center of Shanghai. Besides, there are cafes and post offices to entertain tourists. Come down from the viewing platform and reach the souvenir shop. The souvenirs are very rich here. Apart from all kinds of souvenirs related to the Shanghai center, there are many exquisite local products of Shanghai, which can be used as gifts. Among them, my favorite is bottled drinking water. The bottle body is the shape of Shanghai Central Building. It is simple but interesting.
