Morning Run – Shanghai Pudong Saturday

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.

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!
