Shanghai is definitely in my top 5 places to visit. The skyline looks amazing and the culture fascinating.

Need to save some £ first though

Neighbours

Along two street fronts of the block of Shanghai Tower, there are 2 to 4 storey houses with red roofs.

What are these houses used for?

you know,construct workers are not local shanghainese, they are from undeveloped rural eara of china. when shanghai tower needs them,they come,work 1-2 years. then maybe leave ,going to another city do the same job. the red roof house is temporary for them to live.when the building finished, it will be demolished.

Do you guys remember back in the day when this tower was nicknamed "Dragon" (and the other proposal "Spire")? Does anyone have any idea why it was called that?

I always thought it was because the tower looked like a Dragon's tail. But I don't know. Any theories?
