Here are some photos I took around Shanghai!

Near People's Square area facing the main Nanjing Rd shopping street







The incredible Shanghai skyline!!



Part of the skyline again, slowly peeking through



Close to the riverside



The Shanghai World Financial Centre can be seen from the Yu Yuan Gardens on a clear day!



This was another day - was not very clear



The narrow streets of Yu Yuan where they have many souvenir shops, food etc...

Some more photos of the incredible city of Shanghai!!


The famous tea house of Yu Yuan Gardens



Looking up at the towering second tallest building of Shanghai - the Jin Mao Tower



Now where up the Shanghai Financial Centre observatory looking down onto the
Jin Mao tower!



The Shanghai skyline looking north



Sunset looking at the beautiful Puxi skyline



One of the side streets branching off Nanjing Rd (not sure what this ones called, if anyone knows please tell!)




The messy overhead wires near the Bund area



Approaching the Bund and seeing the Oriental Pearl tower poke out is an amazing feeling! The skyline looks so grand in
real life when you approach the Bund.



The skyline once again taken from Waibaidu bridge



Shimao Tower towering above the busy street of Nanjing Rd and surrounds



Nanjing Rd again, close up of the busy street level. Late afternoon I think.



The Shimao tower once again!



...and here it is again! This time from the back (or front?). This is near the Peoples Sq/Park area



In Pudong, near the SFWC/Jin Mao tower areas. This is looking at the Shanghai Tower construction site. In the distance
you can see these twin towers that I didn't know even existed!



Looking up at the enormous tallest buildings in Shanghai



Near the old city/Yu Yuan area of Shanghai



Hua Hai Rd in the early evening. This whole area is so lively - actually the whole way from here to the Bund was just
endless people on the street!



The rear of that Aurora building in Pudong. Pudong on the other hand seemed very quite and deserted than Puxi.

More photos!!


Looking up at the Shanghai WFC, it looked totally different here



And again, from a different angle



Pudong skyline from the Huangpu river looking south



On the elevated highway in the suburbs of Shanghai



Looking towards Peoples Square from Nanjing Rd



Nanjing Road!! So lively!



Looking towards the Bund. Can you spot the famous Peace Hotel?



Near the bund area



Looking north of the Bund with the Waibaidu bridge



Back to Nanjing Rd again, and here is a Shanghai Expo shop



This photo looks like it's taken inside a McDonalds shop but it's not lol. Just zoomed in with the M sign poking out



Looking at People's Square again



Density of the Nanjing Rd area



Traditional buildings within the Yu Yuan complex



Can't remember where this is - Hua Hai Lu?

Thank you for taking us with you on this trip to this amazing city.

The street level shot combined with your comments on every picture, made it all quite immersive.

Now, I really feel an urge to get to know Shanghai...(one day I will, one day...).

It looks like Shanghai have some European style buildings as well. Very interesting. China wasn't colony so it is surprising to me see that Shanghai have some European influences in its architecture.

your welcome!

Yes, Shanghai is really amazing. I hope you do end up visiting one day! China in a whole is amazing, and once visiting Shanghai and comparing to other places in China, you realise that all of it is just amazing.
