The traffic looks terrible at the intersection...pudong feels like one massive construction site, entire China feels like one massive construction site!

I just hope they do something to make Pudong pedestrian friendly. They have beautiful parks associated with almost every building but I wish they made it so they could have little shops and apartments/houses along the street. Then again I have to keep in mind that this is solely a business area unlike Manhattan or dense areas of London.

Either you or someone else pointed that out to me before. I keep forgetting about that area and the rest of Shanghai. Being from the U.S. I'm so used to seeing the CBD being the oldest and densest part of town. I need to pay attention.

I don't think Pudong is pedestrian friendly in a sense that its hard to walk from place to place... I think its just a matter of the amount of time it takes to get from one place to another. There are wide sidewalks, parks, etc. but to get from the Oriental Tower to the SWFC could take a while...

I'm getting off topic here but isn't there a subway system for Pudong? That could make it easier for pedestrians.

^theres always been subway in shanghai, but the subway in shanghai won't just stop every 500m. Nevertheless, subway makes it a lot easier to go across the river :p

Jin Mao's cladding should be more transparent, so it would look better in night.
