You can now get higher than ever before with Wednesday’s opening of the sightseeing observatory located on the 118th floor of the Shanghai Tower.
It will cost you 180 yuan ($36) to see a panoramic view of the city from 546 meters up in the appropriately-named “Top of Shanghai” observatory, which is open each day from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., following a lengthy trial opening period.
To get all the way up there takes just 55 seconds aboard the Shanghai Tower’s Guinness World Record-setting elevators — though you probably should also account for how long you’ll have to wait in line.
The super-tall skyscraper is the result of six years of construction. It was finally crowned as the world’s second tallest building last year. Though even before it was finished, people were already climbing to the top.
