The Pudong skyscrapers are the pride of Shanghai. The Shanghai Tower, the second highest building in the world, was recently added to the Shanghai skyline, transforming the business district at the Huangpu River into a world-class destination.
Pudong, on the east bank of the river, is the newest district of the metropolis. Only 30 years ago, this area was covered with green rice fields. Now you can look out over the city from the top of some of the world’s tallest hotels, almost 500 metres above the ground. If the city becomes too much for you, take refuge in the Lujiazui greenbelt. The park’s pond is shaped like Pudong and planted around the pond are magnolias, the city’s symbol.
