Everyone (at least in Shanghai) knows Liujiazui as the financial district of the city (and may be of the country). It is an impressive area of this fascinating city.
It is also somewhat of a symbolic aspect of the new, highly developed and powerful Shanghai. Why is that? Well, because of its location – Liujiazui is located directly across the river from the Old financial district of Shanghai – the Bund (Waitan) – which is where the famous Paris of the Orient was headquartered back in the day….
I like the area though for its innovative and aggressive architecture. Most people coming to see Shanghai see it from a distance – from the Puxi area – as they go for the "mandatory" tour of fhe Bund.
In this posting I will give you a view and taste of it as you walk among the huge skyscrapers and see it also at night.
