Pudong and Jinmao Tower

Pudong is a huge business area, which is not excessively interesting to wander around, unless you have to do it for work. But several buildings are worth visiting, such as the Jinmao Tower, the highest building in China, and the 3rd in the world.

The television tower is 468m high and has 11 baubles in total, though only 3 are currently in use. The other are for lease, but I am not sure that having a flat there would be convenient :-)

Pudong is a bit like Hong-Kong, but with much more space to spread its vertical architecture.

All floors of the Jinmao Tower (420m) between the 54th and the 87th floor are used by the Grand Hyatt hotel. On the 87th floor there is a bar with a fantastic view. On the 53rd floor another piano bar is also very nice to stay in.

At night it is even more impressive. The tower itself symbolise bamboo, and also a pen. The name jinmao means "economy" and "trade"
