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.

  • 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 
  • There were many people day and night both went, when you go. Buildings lit up at night because at night is very beautiful, crowded with tourists and couples in the day more. The Shanghai tower was lit up from 19:00.
