Days and Nights in Shanghai - Episode Nine

The Shanghai International Convention Center, Pudong Shangri-La, Oriental Pearl Cruise Dock and Shanghai Ocean Aquarium can also be found along the avenue.

The Huangpu River is characterized by these two distinct riverbank sceneries—one a collection of classic architecture from various countries built decades ago; the other touted as an oriental financial center.

Entertainment and culture come together nicely in Xintiandi, an area of Eastern and Western design, to form a tourist hot spot as well as a relaxing place for local residents.

Time seems to travel backward to the 1920s with a leisurely walk through Xintiandi, but the building interiors and shop inventories remind visitors of the current date. International galleries, fashion boutiques, themed restaurants, coffee houses and so much more can be found in Xintiandi. Handicrafts sold at the China Cultural Store are unique to Shanghai, and the rich cultural performances in the open square attract and encourage tourist participation. The Shikumen Museum vividly portrays the lifestyle of a Shanghai family in the early 20th century, enabling tourists to get a glimpse of life in Shanghai from a historic perspective.
