CAPTAIN YOUTH HOSTEL , is located only a few blocks away to it. That means we could go here anytime we want by foot. And so we were here early in the morning and again at night.
On one side are the famous European Style buildings due to the former Shanghai International Settlement and on the other is Pudong where Lujiazui is located. The area has been developed specifically as a new financial district of Shanghai where iconic skyscrapers are located inlcuding that of the Oriental Pearl Tower, Jin Mao Building, Shanghai World Financial Center. Under construction and soon to be completed later this year is the tallest of them all --- the Shanghai Tower.
One thing I realized, Shanghai's skyline might be imposing in photos and posters but it still pales in comparison with that of Hong Kong. Nothing is as compact and as crowded as the skyscrapers in Victoria Harbor. And I mean "crowded"here in a good way. It will take more years before Pudong's skyline to overtake that of Hong Kong.
And when in Shanghai, you will realize, MANILA NEEDS AN ICONIC SUPERTALL!
Give us even one pleeeeeeease! ^^
You want to stay away from the crowd. Now that means a lot because you can pace yourself while walking the stretch of the promenade. That sound more romantic to me because there is no feeling of being rushed. You get to enjoy the view more, you get to feel it more, and you get to get more photos less the annoyance of photo bombs.
You want to see the building light up as if it is everyday Christmas. Electricity must be cheap in Shanghai because it seems that every building lights up at night and streets are also bright. No worrying about going around by foot. All you need to do is enjoy the view. Do know though that there are so many people at The Bund at night. You have to compete for space as and it especially hard to find a seat should you go tired of walking around.
