Built inside of a former rock quarry mine 16 stories below grade, the stunning InterContinental Shanghai is one of China's most unique hotels. Completed in 2019, the project required the construction an 18-story building next to a man-made lake with only the top 2 stories visible above the ground level of the surrounding terrain.

The 5-star hotel overlooks the cliff-lined amphitheater where a laser and light show takes place every evening. There is also rock climbing and a stair along the cliff though some have complained that these attractions are often not open to guests.

The 60 meter high glass cliffwalk is only accessible by entering the small Shimao theme park next to the hotel. The entry fee is 120 RMB plus an additional 10 RMB for the glass cliffwalk that hangs along the upper edge of the quarry gorge offering spectacular views of the hotel. There is also a separate pathway and overlook from the hotel but without glass.

Just below the lake level is an ocean themed restaurant that allows guests to dine in front of a 2-story glass window aquarium.
