About Shanghai elsewhere
"On the eastern bank of the Huangpu River, known as Pudong, (the old city is on the west, Puxi) this is China?s."
"The Four Seasons Hotel ,Shanghai is ideally located in downtown Shanghai, to the west of the Huangpu River in the Puxi district, just a short distance from the most prestigious shopping, entertainment and business areas of Nanjing and Huaihai roads."
"On the west side of the main avenue (Zhongshan Dong Yi Lu) that runs along the Bund are the colonial edifices of yore, while the eastern side is taken by the Bund Promenade, a raised embankment that acts as a dike against the Huangpu River, because downtown itself, situated on a soggy delta, is slowly sinking below the river level."
"The Bund, an Anglo-Indian term for the embankment of a muddy waterfront, facing the river with its magnificent collection of European and Japanese colonial architecture, runs along the Huangpu River and there are plenty of street performers, peddlers and food."
"It is a good starting point for a boat trip on the Huangpu river or a visit to the Yu Yuan Market."
"Broadly, central Shanghai is divided into two areas: Pudong (east of the Huangpu River) and Puxi (west of the river)."
"If you need to cross from one side of the Huangpu River to the other by taxi, especially from Pudong (??) to Puxi (??), you may want to make sure your driver will make the trip, and knows where he or she is going."
"To cross the Huangpu River over, the cheapest and most wonderful way is to take the ferry from the central part of the Bund opposite the end of Jinling Dong Lu."
Take the Transrapid train from the airport to Pudong, the most modern and transforming district in Shanghai. You'll go so fast that cars moving forward on the highway will seem to be rocketing backwards past you.
You'll find very stylish bars and clubs along the Bund with a stunning view towards the Pudong skyline.
Check out Jin-Mao tower, a stunning 88-story building. Take the elevator up to the cafe and experience an awe-inspiring architectural masterpiece!
The pollution is nothing but breathtaking, literally. It is to say that I was there in mid-summer, maybe it's not so bad all year round. There's a lot of concrete everywhere and no inviting area to let you relax.
If you want to get to know real ambition and enthusiasm, go visit the inspiring and, in a way intimidating, Exhibition Hall at the Shanghai City Planning Bureau (close to People Square). There you'll find a foresighted model of the city and its surroundings as planned for 2010 (plus a computer-animated 3-D film taking you on a wild ride over - and under - promised futureland Shanghai). The sight of such a mass of model buildings jamming the platform had a shocking effect on me and almost knocked me off my feet.
Fascinating city about what was and what's becoming China. I really liked the Bund and Yuyuan garden (always love these places where you can suddenly escape from city jungle).
The big cons is pollution in my opinion. Most of the time, there is no use to go on top of the Oriental Pearl Tower.
