The Dragon's Head: SHANGHAI

In this thread I'll post some of my pics I shot during a two month stay in Shanghai. All the pics are made between August and October 2011.

I'll order those pics by the city's districts.

Let's start with Xintiandi.
Xintiandi (engl.: "New Heaven and Earth") is a district of reconstituted traditional shikumen. It's mostly car-free and one of Shanghai's lifestyle centers.

And now...Lujiazui.
I think in a skyscraper forum I don't have to write much about this part of the city. You know, a lot of skyscrapers and stuff...

Excellent shots, lianli! This area of Shanghai looks shockingly like a North American city.

If not for the Chinese symbols on everything, I'd never guess this is China.
