Walking along, you'll see Shanghai's history encapsulated in the architecture, from historic buildings of British colonialism to Pudong's ultramodern skyscrapers, making up the recognizable skyline of today's Shanghai.

  • I went a few years ago. Only here in China is not like building and sympathetically, have been at night is beautiful. Not going because it takes a child from the commotion of the PM2.5, air is clean and want to go again.

  • Go during the day and at night a great night and a leisurely walk is also a really good place. A truly night across the street told us that is really fantastic

  • 上海的中山路一旁是外滩,另一旁是一排建筑群,白天去的时候有一种时空的交错感,晚上各色的灯光打在建筑上很宏伟
