Right next door is Superbrand Mall, i think still the largest shopping mall in Shanghai. Superbrand Mall holds all the mid to lower tier brands such as H&M, Esprit while IFC holds only the top luxury brands (Coach did not make it into the IFC).
Inside the glass of the Apple store in Luajizui, I bought an iPad there for my grandma
IFC actually holds some fashion brands like Diesel on the underground level.
This is the best looking supermarket i have seen in my life. There are many supermarkets in Shanghai that sells only the imported goods. People who can afford the imported goods definitely want to stay away from the "dangerous" Chinese food. The trend for them is - the more expensive the better.
Apparently the hotel is 5 stars plus, not too sure, but indeed looking very expensive to me. Its amazing how much demands there are for 5 stars hotel there is in Shanghai. This one only just started and there are already customers frequently coming in out of it.
There are many these dessert / drink stores in Shanghai, Element Fresh makes some very nice and health drinks.
Newly developed roads in Pudong are in fact quite wide, but still not as huge comparing to Beijing roads.
I actually live very close to Kerry Centre. The apartments are huge, each floor in the apartment only holds two families.
Having red night sky is a very typical Shanghai feature. You can see the Kerry Centre couple lighting up the whole place. Down beneath are the houses, those are very very expensive, we are talking about 5 million USD+
The area is in fact quite far away from the Shanghai city centre. You can see the "inner ring" elevated highway here, and the maglev train station.
Im not quite sure how you would call this in English, but apartments are grouped into "gardens". Its more like a complex actually, each complex has its own garden, car park, gym etc. You are looking at a swimming pool right there.
People's Square, this place is considered to be the heart of Shanghai/ If you type in Shanghai in Google Map, the map will centre at this place if you zoom in. It is called People's Square because it is actually has a park.
What you are seeing is the older generations of Shanghai citizens. They are gathering up to talk about marriage for their sons or daughters. Believe it or not, it is like a huge dating-event…
This is what you will see when you walk out from the park. The traffic is always so bad there. Its amazing, look at the number of taxis on the road in Shanghai.
People's Square area is actually not very modern. This is what you would see when you walk into a smaller road near the place. - the feeling of old Shanghai, art-deco buildings and tiny tiny roads.
Hershey store, you won't believe how popular this store is - why? I dunno.
This is one of my favorite mall in Shanghai called Raffles City. Btw, i took the photo during Christmas last year. I love that year's decoration, the moose are looking awesome and needless to say - sponsored by Heineken.
Walking gradually from ground level up as i took the photos.
