Beautiful Photos From Shanghai Summer Trip by chukxie(m): 3:54pm On Sep 05, 2017
I was in Shanghai last week for summer vacation. I must confess the city is clean, superbly organised and beautiful especially the colonial buildings on Huangpo / Bunds area. This part of the city could be mistaken for a place in Europe if they were no ubiquitous signs in Chinese adorning the streets and some buildings. Below are some of the photos I took while there.

Shanghai is much more beautiful than Beijing. It's also the most cosmopolitan city in China. One downside of Shanghai is its outrageous property prices. Property prices there are way above those of Beijing and every other city in China.

At night, the streets and buildings on the bank and across the Huangpo river are transformed into a spectacle of mesmerizing lights.

these are pics of the BUND, and it doesnt really reflect the true pictures of Shanghai... yes this is Shanghai, but just a small part of that city...that would be as crazy as going to Xintiandi and say this is the true representation of Shanghai.

pls dont get me wrong, Shanghai is a great city (the best in China IMHO) but thats not the true Shanghai... just like the Champs-Élysées is not really Paris, Copacabana is NOT a true representation of Rio OR banana Island is not a true representation of Lagos.

You've spoken like someone who knows Shanghai pretty well. Considering this knowledge of yours, I'm inclined to believe you must know how huge a city Shanghai is; and how virtually impossible it is for a tourist to go about taking pictures of every part of the city in order to get a true picture of how beautiful or otherwise the city is. Shanghai in my honest opinion is one of the most beautiful cities in Asia after the likes of Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur...

absolutely right, i lived in Shanghai (1yr) and Beijing (1yr) and there are many more other fantastic places in Shanghai that dont necessarily have to be the touristy places. Shanghai is a beautiful place wherever you go, you just have to look closely enough, and as much as it may not be chic, its nevertheless great.

and as for me, Tokyo takes the top spot in Asia, hands down... as (i believe) a great city is worthless unless its citizens are also great... and Chinese (no matter how rich/educated they are) have NO SAVOIR VIVRE!

Having been to Tokyo and the other cities I listed I can truly say Tokyo takes the crown in terms beauty, organisation, and some other positive urban indices. Singapore would follow closely on the heels of Tokyo. On the issue of the Chinese lacking "Savoir Vivre" is subjective depending on how one looks at it. Trust me, mate, I know what you meant because I've lived in China long enough to know how outrageously repulsive some Chinese folks act.

Lalasticlala oya now shocked

If not for Bourdillion style, Lagos would have been better and comparable to these cities.

But Bourdillion shortlist, nominate and interview all characters into public offices from the highest to the lowest offices in the ministries.

The current one is lipsrsealed

Useless city angry angry

a city loses so much of its appeal if/when its citizen lack basic manners... "hello", "thank you", "sorry", "after you" etc are unknown to the majority of people that lives in SH or BJ, because the majority come from poor rural areas. the wealthy ones are the worst of them all, jumping queues, being loud and disrespectful, spitting everywhere (even in elevators and planes). kai!

I'm chuckling in bed because I don't want to wake my daughter who's fast asleep - she has school tomorrow. In all honesty I noticed just a handful of 'spitters' during my trip to Shanghai probably because the authorities there are trying to get people to kick the disgraceful habit. But you know what they say about old habits, right? angry . Good night from here.

We have the capacity and resources to have structures that are better than those but these men right here looted and squandered our common resources then divided us along ethnic and religious lines and we are now attacking each other like dogs struggling for pieces of bones.

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page


It's better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times


People should learn to travel, to discover the world.

Most people will die without even leaving Nigeria, what a sad way to live
