What do you mean 'tacky'? Those are residential blocks. That's how they are meant to look. And I certainly don't find it sad. It looks like a city.

Agree, it looks a a bit gritty, dense, and disorganized which gives a real "city feel".
It doesn't look tacky, and it doesn't look so different in style from Hong Kong and Singapore.

The worst that can happen to a city is this (3km from 'downtown'). Now that is sad.

The next morning. Zhao Hua Lu which also functions as an odd street market selling all kinds of stuff from watermelons to women's bras . I guess it's one of those spots where one can see how Shanghai looked like 20-30 years ago
image hosted on flickr


Lots of movement there. Lots of people buy stuff despite a large Careffour supermarket being just 5 minutes away. Is it cheaper to buy from places like that?

Audi C3 (not sure which version) produced until 1991. The history of this car started in 1983 and officialy ended in 1991. However FAW re-introduced the identically looking model under Hongqi brand (but with Chrysler engine) and production continued until mid 2000's or so

Its amazing how such a massive city looks so neat and tidy, for the most part at least, but I wonder what is the pedestrian experience like? How difficult is it to cross streets and just generally get about the place on foot?

I think pedestrian experience is generally good. The only problem is getting used to traffic patterns and manners. But overall Shanghai is a well planned city and that includes pedestrian accessibility.

Taking a metro train from West Yanan rd. station to Dalian Rd. for the Jewish quarter which was one of the main sightseeing objectives for that day.

West Yanan rd. metro station (lines 3 and 4)

Views from the metro train. Part of the distance was on elevated tracks which provided a good opportunity to have a look around

Bus and trolleybus depot (?)

Housing. If I'm not mistaken this is seen from Zhongtan Rd. elevated station

On the surface. The area around Dalian Lu station was surrounded by fences and constructions. I have no idea what's being built there
image hosted on flickr


The area (Chang Yang Lu in Hongkou district) seems somewhat quiet and slow going. Feels so different from the modern and grandiose Shanghai which can be found just a few blocks away. I suppose there are some restrictions for new constructions in that location because that particular area is lowrise and there didn't seem to be many constructions in the immediate vicinity

This, from what I understand, is part of what used to be the Jewish ghetto at some point in history. I did some reading about it before going to Shanghai and was quite keen to see the area myself. There isn't much evidence of that though

Hua Shan Park is a small park which has a memorial dedicated to the Jewish Ghetto which was in the surrounding area

Just as in any other park people are exercising, relaxing or spending time with their children
