World Financial Centre, Shanghai, China
Tuesday 8th July 2008
Shanghai has a higher density of skyscrapers than any other city in the world. Our bus journey to the hotel was thrilling enough as we gazed at the vast city-scape from the window.
This evening we went across the river to the financial district of Pudong and ascended to the observation deck on the 88th floor of the Jinmao Tower. We managed to get there at sunset so we saw the city views at both day and night.
The building directly next to it is the Shanghai World Finance Building, the third tallest building in the world at 460m. Picture taken from the Jin Mao observation deck, it looks like something out of Bladerunner!
