China's tallest skyscraper, the Shanghai Tower, is expected to be open for business soon.

The 632-meter-tall tower is second only to Dubai's Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building.

A high-speed elevator has been installed to take visitors to a viewing platform on the 119th floor in just 55 seconds.
