5. Shanghai Tower

The 632-meter-high Shanghai Tower in Lujiazui is the tallest building in China and the second-tallest in the world following the Burj Khalifa in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

The Shanghai skyscraper also features the world's highest observation deck and the second-fastest elevator, as well as a green design that has won it a "leadership in energy and environmental design platinum certification" from the US Green Building Council.

According to Cheng Luo, a representative of Shanghai Tower, the building will hold traditional Chinese folk art shows and activities to celebrate Lunar New Year.

Visitors can also check out three other famous buildings-the Oriental Pearl Tower, Jinmao Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Center-in the vicinity that also offer panoramic views of the city.
