This area is a mixture between farm houses, rice paddies, newly erected factories, some old industry and the first luxury compounds appearing on the city limits

But even this area is touched by the development. Even the public toilet looked quite modern

Some 500m away, the area changes to an urbanized and modern Shanghai. Nobody looked or cared about me. Two worlds seem to collide on Shanghais northern city limit
