Pudong, Shanghai - The Future Is Now!

The craft most skyline I've ever seen till now belongs to Pudong - the special Shanghai business district. The leftmost is the Pearl Tower - the highest TV tower in Asia (486m) - carrying inside a hotel, a revolving restaurant and the sightseeing level.

The craft most skyline I’ve ever seen till now belongs to Pudong – the special Shanghai business district. The leftmost is the Pearl Tower – the highest TV tower in Asia (486m) – carrying inside a hotel, a revolving restaurant and the sightseeing level.

The one with a hole high above is Shanghai World Financial Center – 492m high. After leaving Shanghai I was told that it’s possible to purchase an observation ticket on top of it. Jin Mao skyscraper is adjacent to SWFC from the left. Its crown is back lighted at night and looks like a huge gorgeous crystal.

At 18:30 (if I remember right) starts the Shanghai version of “Symphony of Lights” (originally from Hong Kong) – the skyscrapers start to illuminate and flicker, some barge is carrying a gigantic TV that translates advertisement clips and lots of people are taking pics – if you’ll be there – you’ll see one more time that one look worth thousands of words :)
