Lupu Bridge -- the second longest arch bridge in the world (longest is now in Chongqing) -- gets its name from the two districts it connects: Luwan and Pudong. At the time of its completion in 2003, it was actually the longest in the world. The Lupu Bridge Climb -- actually it's called the "Shanghai Climb" -- is one of Shanghai's better tourists destinations,. For an 80rmb fee, visitors can climb the 300 plus stairs on the arch of the bridge to a viewing platform at the top. It's one of Shanghai's better, more interestingly achieved views, and you're afforded a panorama, 360-degree scene of the city for your trouble. It's open daily from 8:30am to 5pm. The Shanghai Climb is closes when the weather's not good. ........Ref ; Smart shanghai
