Shanghai Views

There are a few sights in Shanghai that always delight me and to which I return periodically.

The first is a small garden near where the Suzhou Creek flows into the Huangpu River, right at the top of the Bund.  From the Bund, there is the traditional view across the river to the spectacular buildings in Pudong.

 Shanghai Tower is the tallest building in China
and the second tallest in the world

However, heading up to the Waibaidu (Garden) Bridge in the North Bund, I see that for Spring, the gardeners have sculpted dophins in the small park.  When I come back in a few months, it will be something else.

As I walk down Beijing Road, ½ hour from the Bund, the Jing’an Sculpture Park has just finished a major renovation.  I call this one, “Creative Use of Shipping Containers”:

Almost every trip to Shanghai, I make sure that I wander by these sites and see what is current.
