About
"Pudong, in its 13-year history, has surprisingly progressed in its economic strength and its urban development. This 556-sqaure-kilometer farmland 13 years ago is well on its way toward a modern metropolis. As the epitome of Shanghai' modernization and the symbol of China's reform and opening up drive, Pudong has become an ideal land for global investors."

Top ways to experience Pudong New Area
The area
Neighborhood: Century Park
Shanghai residents see Pudong’s suburbs as the place that grown-ups retreat to when they’re ready to settle down and stop living in the cramped confines of a refurbished lanehouse. The areas around Century Park are some of the most desirable as they are in close proximity to the Metro Lines, granting easy access to the heart of Puxi. The park itself is a huge draw, it’s one of Shanghai’s biggest and there are sports fields tucked into one of its corners, but five-star hotels, museums and great malls make life in the Century Park area easy for the homesick foreigner. And if living in a Western bubble in China isn’t your thing, there is plenty of local flavor to be had in between the major development. Some of Lujiazui’s futurism can also be seen in buildings and sculptures throughout the neighborhood as well.
How to get there

Electric, Fun, & Ever Changing.
Oct 2020
Electric. Fun. Fascinating. Ever changing. Versatile. Busy. Big business. Shopping. Tourists. Numerous restaurants & dining opportunities. Several museums in the immediate area. Can be a little congested at times. Take public transportation if possible. Glorious views of The Bund area. Can pick-up a hop on / hop off bus from this area. All towers within walking distance. Very western feel, new & modern, sleek. Majority of people in this area speak some English. The night experience much different than day time so walk around & visit the area both times of day. Holidays the area will be busy so be prepared. The time you spend in the area will depend on your purpose could be an hour could be all day. You decide! Enjoy.

Newly Developed Area of Shanghai
Jan 2020
This is the latest area to be developed in Shanghai and contains the Pearl Tower (looks like space ship with round ball on top), the Financial Center (which encompasses a huge mall with many restaurants) along with many other shops. Modern in every sense of the word. You can travel to the top of the tallest building for great views of Shanghai on clear days but be sure to bring your passport for ID purposes.

Shopping and financial hub
Jan 2020 • Family
This is THE shopping belt and financial district for the Pudong area.

Its most famous landmark should be the Oriental Pearl Tower where the ultra-modern design and prime location makes it a mistake item when visiting Shanghai. There are multiple skyscrapers that are more than 100 floors tall (eg Shanghai World Financial Center). They are a sight to behold. For a fee, you can go to the top of these buildings to catch the awesome view of Shanghai.

There are also quite a few mega malls in this area where you can shop for high end fashion brands, down to the shops selling merchandise that appeals to the masses.

This side of Shanghai is the financial district and could easily be transported to America, China did an incredible job taking a rice paddy into the 21st century in a decade.

Great architecture here as well
Dec 2019
Great architecture as in the whole center of Shanghai. The architecture is one of the most impressive things in Shanghai, no matter what. You can easily move around the different areas by means of subway, and enjoy all of the spectacular views.

Easily accessed by the tunnel or ferry this is a good walk for a sunny afternoon. It can be done in a small walk or miles along the river.
