SHANGHAI - The world's highest sightseeing hall, located on the 100th floor of China?s tallest skyscraper, will open to the public on Saturday, local media reported.
The hall is 474 metres (1,555 feet) above the ground in the Shanghai World Financial Centre, the Oriental Morning Post reported Tuesday.
Sightseers who want a bird's eye view of the city will have to pay 150 yuan (22 dollars) each for the experience, it said.
