It gives a surprising distinction between historic colonial structure and the awe-inspiring trendy skyline of Pudong on the opposite aspect of the Huangpu river. Right here, you may get a number of the greatest views throughout the town. After Pudong, I take you to Nanjing road for some procuring, adopted by a second of calm within the rebuilt Jing’An Temple.
