As an architect who grew up admiring many of the world's tallest towers, getting to see this amazing tower in person was a dream come true. Save your money for the Shanghai tower viewing deck. If you want to go visit the SWFC, there are bars inside on really high levels. I would really recommend that. I had a few beers with a colleague up there and it was incredible.
