On 17 April, 2014, we got a chance to visit the number two to date high building: Shanghai Tower. The tower is 632 m high, only lower than the highest building Dubai Tower in the world for the moment.
Below are some pictures and an video I took from the visiting. A bit detailed introduction is offered along with the pictures. You may also refer to the term Shanghai Tower in WikiPedia for more detail.
The day before we visited the tower, the weather was nice. The shape of the tower looks like female, which is quite different from other skyscrapers.
