I agree. What a stunning pictures! And I liked that short video as well. That sculptures on pic 1051-1 are very original.
I must say I'm a bit jealous, but not in a bad way. So I will keep following this thread with pleasure!

Yanan Road and Elevated Yanan Road (expressway). The elevated road was built in 1996 as most of Shanghai's elevated roads were built around that time

China is world's largest market for Škoda cars. Those who are not aware, Škoda is an old Czech car brand owned by Volkswagen Group since early 1990's and since 2006 also produced in China for the local market

A lovely park

I was wondering how much Shanghai is spending on maintenance of all those parks? There are lots of them and they usually look extremely well maintained despite large numbers of people using them

Lots of street cleaners. It seems to be one of the tools to maintain low unemployment even among those who have no education or skills (which is good) and also makes the city clean which is also great

A small urban park near Yanan Road. Don't know which one but it's a lovely and quiet oasis in a busy and noisy area

A brief tour around Shanghai's most hardcore stack road junction. That thing looks sick. I had never seen anything like this in my life before and was like "Now THAT is some serious shit!". For those who love roads, junctions and stuff like that (which I most certainly do) this is the place to hang out in Shanghai. Although Shanghai is littered with all kinds of cool-looking junctions, flyovers, elevated roads and all that bullshit. If you like it, you're in a fu**in right place! Yeah!

This is what I call justice and this is what NIMBYs should be seeing every day once they go to hell.

Public bus. This shape of buses seems to be common in Shanghai. I didn't have a chance to ride a bus though

Drying laundry on windows seems to be rather commom

Police car. Police also uses Škodas in their fleet

VW has certainly set a massive footprint on Chinese cities. It is incredible how many VW produced cars there are on the streets (including VW, Audi, Škoda, not to mention the hi-end luxury brands like Bentley, Porsche, Lamborghini...)

Shanghai has a functioning trolleybus network. It is diminishing and will probably be gone over the next few years as in most other cities. However probably not everyone is aware that Shanghai's trolleybus system is world's oldest having first trolleybuses entering service in 1914

Shanghai Urban Exhibition Center. This is a must-see place for those who are interested in buildings, skyscrapers and wider urban development (which most of us here are, I guess). It has a huge scale model of central part of Shanghai as well as lots of other visual information on various developments and urban history of Shanghai

So you have finally edited them!

I must say it all looks very impressive and despite the size of the place it does look quite pleasant too, although its very weird to see hammer & sickle flags with big cars and ultra-modern skyscrapers in the background! Good stuff there, man!

Thanks!
I still haven't finished editing everything. It's still going to take a while

As for hammers and sickles, I don't think there are many. There were a few for a 90th anniversary of the CCP but other than that there are hardly any. We'll see some more of that stuff in Ho Chi Minh City. I have a lot of photos from there too. That is a much more exotic place than what we can see in Shanghai.
