Waterhouse Hotel at South Bund (Waima Lu). Quite possibly the best old warehouse conversion I've ever seen. Absolutely brilliant and outstanding implementation by Neri + Hu Design and Research Office

I'm ashamed to say it but I was unaware of how beautiful Shanghai is till I came across this thread! From what I can see in your photographs there appears to be a real effort to "green" the city- would you say Shanghai is a green city considering its density? Also, do you feel safe and secure when walking around most parts of the city?

Thanks for sharing your wonderful images- you have fed my appetite to visit China and Shanghai in particular!

Thank you!

Regarding your note on efforts to make the city green it certainly is so. Shanghai is without any doubt one of the best cities when it comes to urban green spaces. Perhaps not as great as Shenzhen (which is a new city altogether, hence having advantages in implementing new planning ideas including landscaping) but it is obvious that a lot of money was put into landscaping. Maybe even too much in some situations. Apart from Shenzhen I have never seen a city where so much attention is paid to landscaping and green urban retreats. Moreover, most of them seem to be kept in immaculate condition. This is one of the aspects of Shanghai that impressed me the most besides the skyscrapers and transport infrastructure.

However it is not just Shanghai. Last year I briefly visited Shenzhen and Guangzhou. Shenzhen has a reputation of being a green or park city but Guangzhou is also putting incredible effort to look green and cosy. And with great success to, it seems. Overall it looks like China is paying a lot of attention to urban landscaping and is investing vast amounts of money into it.

I used Canon 500D and cheapest of the kind Sigma lenses (10-20mm and 18-200mm).
