I was impressed how modern all the buildings and skyscrapers were at the financial district of Shanghai. There were also high and clean bridge or walk ways around it. It was also very safe to explore.

When people speak of Shanghai’s futuristic skyline,
it’s the financial district of Luiazui they are
speaking of. Shanghai’s most iconic buildings are
located in close proximity to Lujiazui’s elevated ring
road and swanky eateries. Sky-high shopping and chic
