Morning Run – Shanghai Pudong Saturday
All of you most likely picture Shanghai as a place constantly crowded and hardly with any open spaces or areas free of crowds….Well, if you try hard – you can find the place and time where you will be (almost) alone….even…in Shanghai.
On Saturday morning I decided to go for a morning run / brisk walk in the area of the Shanghai International Conference Center and the Super Brands Mall and between the river and Binjiang Avenue.
You all be very surprised to find a park nearly devoid of people even at 9am in the morning. And here is the good part – you can stroll, run, stretch along the walkway along the Huangpu river and enjoy all this space to yourself.
As you can see the park and its alleyways are very nice and comfortable for both taking in the views as well as having a good run
How do you like this view…? From this vantage point you can see the buildings across Huangpu river
More views from the Bund – all the historic buildings (Peace Hotel…) seen from Pudong.
Some of the old customs houses at the Bund – Good views from Pudong side…
Where are the people? Indeed…
and more – ready for a run? It is very humid and hot, but – hey, it is a great place to run and enjoy the views at the same time…
The entrance to the park…Although you can access the parkway along the Huangpu River from many points this being one of them.
Overall, this is the place to be on a weekend morning in Pudong – a place to be alone, able to exercise, enjoy the views and then eventually go to a nice brunch in the near by shopping mall area. How do find the place, take a cab to the Shanghai International Conference Center or the Super Brands Mall, or the subway line 2 to the Super Brands Mall and from there walk towards the river…you will find the place. Enjoy your run!
