 Most of us would be familiar with pictures of the Lujiazui skyline, it being one of the iconic landmarks that dominate Shanghai and China related media content, travel/tourism in particular. Lujiazui was a relatively low-built area, featuring residential houses, warehouses and factories. Rapid changes took place after it was designated as a special investment zone in 1992, and the development of Lujiazui’s skyline begun, largely driven by Chinese SOEs (state owned enterprises) investing and developing the property within the area, with the inaugural landmark, the Oriental Pearl Tower completed in 1994.

Located on the eastern bank of the Huangpu River in Pudong, directly across the river from the old financial and business district of the Bund, it is the perfect choice location to reestablish China as a financial superpower within the global economy in the 21st century. It has been described as the ‘showpiece’ of mainland China’s booming economy and the ascendance of China’s financial power within the global economy.

Don’t miss it if you are in Shanghai, you just gotta make the effort to be there to see and experience the Lujiazui skyline, it is just awesome (i don’t normally like to use this word, but in this case it certainly applies) and overwhelming experience.
