Horizon. The space or line where the sky meets the earth. So many places where the sky meets the earth around the world, and millions of interactions between two elements. Here is one of the most beautiful city skylines I came across during our exploration of the concrete forest that is Shanghai.
Shanghai is the largest city by population in China, with a total population of over 23 million as of 2010. It is a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, City God Temple and Yu Garden, as well as the extensive and growing Lujiazui skyline. It has been described as the “showpiece” of the booming economy of mainland China.
Early morning, before the worst humidity of the day made walking around difficult, we took a walk along the waterfront called the Bund to check out the famous Lujiazui skyline of Shanghai. Pictures of the Lujiazui skyline dominate Shanghai tourism materials.
Currently, there are more than 30 buildings over 25 stories high with commerce as their leading function, and over 504 domestic and overseas financial and insurance corporations located in Lujiazui.
