Standing proudly along the Pudong cityscape, the towering Jin Mao Tower is an architectural landmark in Shanghai that is worth seeing. Travellers wishing to explore the city and these structures should look to find centrally located accommodation options and those who want to experience truly refined living should choose a Shanghai luxury hotel. The Langham, Xintiandi, Shanghai is one such option and its hotel rooms in Shanghai come with a range of contemporary comforts. Situated in the Pudong district, the Jin Mao Tower spans 88 stories and features postmodern style architecture which blends it traditional Chinese design styles including that of a tiered pagoda. In keeping with the belief of Chinese culture that 8 is a number that brings prosperity, this tower’s proportions are also based on that number; it has 8 outrigger trusses and 8 exterior composite super-columns to name but a few connections!
