Shanghai by me

It was my first time to Shanghai and second time to China. As should be expected Shanghai left a huge impression as it is one of world's greatest and most modern mega-cities. There is a lot to do and see in Shanghai and I tried to capture a very small part of that over my 10-day stay there which, obviously, was mowhere near enough to see at least the basics. So let's get started

Video I made


Arriving from Frankfurt to Pudong airport at about noon. Transportation options. I'll be taking metro line 2 this time...

Metro line 2 which will take me all the way to Zhongshan Park which is to be my hood for the next week or so (and another few days after that). It takes well over an hour. Maglev is an option too but I realised it probably wouldn't be that much more efficient time-wise and, of course, would cost much more. I'll leave it for a return journey to the airport

This is that day's destination - Zhingshan Park area in Changning district. My hostel was located there and after having a nap I went out in the evening. Unfortunately it was raining so I limited myself to just getting familiar with the nearby blocks and streets. I later passed the same places every day on my way and back from the metro station.

Place where I stayed. That is, in fact, the best ranked Shanghai hostel in hostelworld.com. And it is a very nice place to stay for those who love international and cosmopolitan company and loud music in the evenings while enjoying some stronger drinks. There was some shabby street market nearby which was selling all kinds of stuff including ducks and chickens (alive ones!). I used to get some snacks from there before departing for my daily trips

One of numerous parks in the area (Kay Bridge Greenland as it's called in Google Maps). Lots of people exercise there in the morning and even throughout the day

Longemont Hotel Shanghai which is a 218m/53fl skyscraper designed by Arquitectonica. I find it to be one of the more interesting towers in Shanghai

There is enough pedestrian space most of the time which I found pleasing. It must have been hard to engage in urban planning in a city this big and manage to make it spacious for pedestrians

I agree to Linguine, very nice pics of Shanghai. Impossible how quick this city changed its face. During my first trips to Shanghai in the 90's the environmental situation was much more worse (f.ex. most rivers were rainbow coloured) and rubbish was everywhere. Nowadays Shanghai is much prettier, even prettier and cleaner as many european and american cities. I'm glad to make a business trip to Shanghai in December .

Street cleaning machine. I used to see lots of those as well as trucks spraying water on the streets. I guess this is to reduce the dust lifting up into the air
