Unique look at Shanghai with a huge footprint of Shanghai with elaborate detailed replicas of its buildings. Could have spent hours there. Remarkable building and display. Don't miss it.

This is an interesting look into the extensive planning that has gone into (and continues) making Shanghai the bustling yet very organised city that it is today. I was particularly interested in the projects to improve transportation and green spaces in the city.

Although parts of the exhibition may feel dated, it is incredibly informative and worth a visit. Check out the history of city planning, it is impressive. And have fun walking around the model of the city!
