hkskyline's 2009 SHANGHAI Photo Collection #7

SWFC is a brand new landmark and featured high on my to-do list. The sun shone and I wanted to see the view as soon as I could. The walk to the building bore great anticipation.







I was not disappointed. The view across to the Bund was amazing. The Oriental Pearl Tower looked so small in comparison!



Above the two big towers' shadow.



The view of Jin Mao's top is quite unique. It looked much better than I thought.



My Shanghai visit was greeted with great weather. Too bad the waterfront promenade was still under heavy construction.





Keep the curtains closed at night. A lot of eyes are watching!







Notice the remarkable urban planning difference on the Puxi side. It's more chaotic, less planned, and skyscrapers pop up here and there.



















Pudong is a bit more spacious. The buildings are not so closely clustered together, so there is a bit more space to breathe.





Quite tall!

















The north side of the river is not so commercial.







It was early in the morning, so the sun was not in the right direction to photograph the Expo site.









Lucky I arrived early in the morning. The large crowds have not yet arrived.







Great views.
