Pudong Afternoon Walk: Best of Pudong by Foot (Getting High in Shanghai Series 5)

Pudong Afternoon Walk
Best of Pudong by Foot
(Getting High in Shanghai Series 5) 

After having lunch in Kerry we took a subway to Lujizui Metro 
station, as we wanted to tour the Pudong city center, known
all over the world  for its famous towering skyscrapers.


At the Lujizui Metro station plaza,
we spotted the Oriental Pearl Tower,
and we paused to take photos with  
the iconic tower in the background.


We also took time to admire the several beautiful
buildings at the Lujizui Metro station peripheries.


We walked towards the Lujizui Ring Road,
and used the circular overpass to cross the road,

…where we had an awesome view
of Shanghai’s iconic skyscrapers,

…the Oriental Pearl Tower,


…and the beautiful center island flower gardens,


…of the massive roundabout.



We descended at Fenghe Road,


…and decided to have a
snack at a 7- Eleven Store,



…beside the Shanghai Aquarium.


We strolled by Oriental Pearl Tower,

…walked all the way to
the end of Fenghe Road,



 …until we reached the Riverside Prominade  


The Pudong Riverside Promenade and Park
is located at the bank of the Huangpu River.


This scenic park is popularwith tourists and locals alike,
and it a one of the best places in Shanghai  to go for
family entertainment, recreation activities and dining,


My family came here for some peace and quiet,
while enjoying the views along the Huangpu River,



…with the park’s well manicured gardens as the backdrop.



The promenade is the showcase of some of the city’s
architectural wonders, like the Oriental Pearl TV Tower,
the Shanghai World Financial Center and Jin Mao Tower.


On the other side of the river is the centuries old the Bund. 

Towards the rear en of the riverside park,
we spotted the Pudong Shangri- La Hotel,


…with the hotel’s old building serves a classic stunner
in contrast with the modern buildings on the backdrop.

We exited the Riverside Prominade  at the
Funcheng Road at the other end of the park,


…and turned Huayuanshiqiao where
we passed by the Jinmao Tower.


We ended our walk at the Douglas Road,


 ...fora Shanghai Tower visit, the tallest building
in China and the second tallest in the world.
