With a population of more than 1.3 billion people, China’s big cities are bound to feel crowded and chaotic. This could not be more true for one of China’s great cities, Shanghai. It’s a great city because of it’s size as well as it’s sights, the history that is present on every street corner boggles the mind.
But that’s not to say history is the only thing to be admired here. Shanghai’s expanding metropolis reminds me that China is cementing its future as well. We have been amazed at how much of China is under construction!
We stayed at a fantastic place near the pedestrian street Nanjing Road. Just to give you an idea of how busy it was, I’d like you to think of Sydney on NewYears Eve. George Street, Darling Harbour, the Harbour foreshore… Teeming with people as you get swept up in the crowd. The only difference is that this crowd appears in Shanghai every single night of the year.
