Shanghai’s iconic riverfront promenade is lined with restored Art Deco, Neoclassical, and Beaux-Arts façades, as well as numerous shops and bars. The low buildings allow for optimal views of Pudong’s space-age towers.
A respite from the city’s crowded streets, this park (which incorporates part of an old racetrack) is also home to the Shanghai Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art, whose striking glass structure once served as a greenhouse.
Shanghai World Financial Center Observatory
On the 100th floor of the Shanghai World Financial Center, the top level of the three-tiered observation deck is the world’s highest within a building—1,555 feet above ground. As if that weren’t enough, the deck sits within the building’s most distinctive feature: the rectangular cutout that gives the structure the appearance of a futuristic bottle opener.
