A view from The Bund of the Shanghai Skyline
Shanghai has the most spectacular skyline in the world and the best view is from the Bund which which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River. From here you are treated to the view of Pudong, one of the newest cities in the world. It is hard to believe that 20 years ago, this was all farmland.
China decided that it wanted Shanghai to take over as the epicentre of China. I am sure that it will soon take over Hong Kong as the financial centre of the country.
Get there early as the crowds get heavy with photographers scrambling for a spot for the best view. When the sun goes down, the city lights up and it is spectacular.
