World’s Greatest Skyline: The Best Views of Shanghai

Best Views Shanghai is part of the TPOL in Shanghai Trip Report.

Where can you find the best views of Shanghai? With buildings that are too tall, the answer is everywhere. Here are my favorites:

From Pudong there is:

Grand Hyatt2016-05-03 17.13.48

And for those not staying at either, head to the Flair Rooftop at the Ritz Carlton (see TPOL’s Guide to Libations in Shanghai).
