People travelling to China to experience the country's urban centres as well as its natural wonders may want to get a bird's eye view of some of its cities.
Shanghai in particular is a good place to go if you are looking for some great vistas over the city - with Travel+Leisure magazine naming two of its towers among the world's top observation decks.
One of the best places to visit if you want an overview of the city is the Shanghai World Financial Centre, which boasts a three-layer observatory at 1,555 ft.
The observation deck is located in the "building's most distinctive feature, the rectangular cut-out", the publication noted.
It also advised looking out for the artwork created by Toshio Iwai in the elevator that takes you to the 100th floor of the building.
Another option if you are looking for stunning views over Shanghai is to head up the Jin Mao Tower.
The magazine described its appearance as "a supersize pagoda", adding that the view down the interior of the tower is just as impressive as that outside the window.
You may want to complement your experiences in some of Shanghai's more modern buildings by visiting some of its older landmarks.
Among them are the People's Square located in the centre of the city and some of the many temples and parks that can be found in the area.
