Thank you gentlemen. It's not really my pics that make it good, I'm a mediocre photographer (I go for quantity over quality). It's the city really. Let's not forget this by any means is one of the largest, most fascinating and interesting cities in the world which makes many other cities of entire continents looks like obscure villages. I think El Greco could produce an unmatched photo tour if he only would bother to get there with his camera. Shanghai is an absolute paradise for urban photo opportunities of any kind. And its big. It would take months, maybe years to actually get to know places.

Continental Emporium building in East Nanjing Road. The building was designed by Zhuang Jun and built in 1932. Clearly one of tha main landmarks of Nanjing Road which is the popular shopping street of Shanghai

I'm not sure who these people were but my guess is tourists from the countryside?

Metro line 2 at East Nanjing Road station. I'll be going one stop to Lujiazui. This is going to be the first time I'll be seeing Pudong from the street level. How exciting!

Continued in Lujiazui, Pudong

Finally, I got to see the main skyscraper icons of Shanghai. A big tick put in my "must-see list" . Too bad weather was a little cloudy. But it's ok because I'll come back to Lujiazui later when the sky will be brighter

A rather nice skyscraper spot. Three absolutely striking supertalls right above you

From there the only way is up to the 474m high observatory which upon completion was world's tallest but was overtaken by Canton Tower observatory in 2011. View of Century Avenue, the core avenue of Pudong

Shanghai is a massive sea of communal highrise blocks. It looks absolutely huge. Unlike some other 'big' cities with never-ending sea of suburban one-storey houses, Shanghai (as well as other major cities in China) does look like a city not just in the central areas but also 20km away from them

The amont of highrise buildings in Shanghai is simply staggering. What is even more staggering that almost everything there was built over the past 30 years. In effect the entire city was demolished and re-built with only fractions of old buildings surviving including a decent amount of heritage buildings

Not 30 but about 20 years. Shanghai didn't get permission to develop until about 1990. So Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Zhuhai and some other places in the south got a 10 year head-start while the rest of China was comparably sleeping until about the early 1990s. After Deng Xiaoping's southern tour in Guangdong in 1992 he permitted the reforms and policies in the economic zones to be copied to the rest of China. Only since then the REAL serious economic growth too off. So the whole of China has really only developed in about 20 years with Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and some other cities being the exception.
