AROUND SHANGHAI'S PEOPLE'S PARK

The old and the futuristic...











Nanjing Dong Lu is Shanghai's traditional "shopper's paradise". Before 1949, all the major stores were located here. ONe of them, the Sun Department Store, now renamed as Shanghai No. 1 Department Store, continues to attract 100,000 customers every day.

Eastern nanjing road is now more of an attraction place for foreign visitors. There are far too many people from other cities there. For me i only shop:

Mainly at the raffles city, a lot of us local shanghainese go there:


And the shimao mall


Other than that i like to go to huai hai road for shopping, a lot of more luxury and fashion brands.

Here is a photo taken inside the raffles city in case you didnt go in there

You're right.
I did not go inside any of the shopping malls in Shanghai.
Thanks for the pics of the mall interior.

SHANGHAI ART MUSEUM & KATHLEEN'S 5


At the northwest corner of People's Park is the Shanghai Art Museum. The museum occupies the lower floors of the elegant old racecourse clubhouse.












Aside from art collections on display, the lavish marble interiors of the 1930s neo-classical building are also of interest.

On the top floor, and accessed by the main clocktower entrance, is an excellent bar restaurant, Kathleen's 5.









I had a snapper in seafood risotto for lunch




The restaurant's terrace

Kathleen's 5 boasts of marvelous views over the park from its roof terrace.
















The top of Jin Mao Tower and Shanghai World Financial Center are visible from here.

SKYSCRAPERS & OTHER NOTABLE BUILDINGS AROUND PEOPLE'S PARK


The Shanghai Grand Theater is a strikingly new edifice, made almost entirely of glass and topped by a spectacular convex roof.

Shanghai City Hall is right beside the Grand Theater.









On the northeast side of the square is a building with four inverted tents for a roof - the Urban Planning Exhibition Center.

Not to be outpaced by other emerging Chinese mega-cities, Shanghai's race for the skies is very evident around People's Park. Steel and glass skyscrapers of unusual shapes and designs are awesome.
