Next to my Hotel, in People’s Square, was one of the busiest streets of Shanghai: Nanjing Lu. A 30 minutes walk, east direction, led me to the Bund, Shanghai’s most famous walkway. At the Bund a Chinese girl was selling luminescent horns. This walkway was the heart of the colonial Shanghai, flanked on one side by the Huangpu River and on the other by hotels, banks, offices, and clubs that were the grandiose symbols of western powers. People were watching an advertisement boat passing by along the Huangpu River. Shanghai’s River is a mere 68 miles (110 Km) in length, but yet a busy commercial waterway and probably the best spot from were to appreciate the skyline of the city by night. The view of Pudong District, set on the other side of the River, was amazing: a blaze of neon. Since the beginning of its development in 1990, Pudong has emerged as China’s financial and commercial hub. This modern Shanghai District is also home of China’s tallest skyscrapers. Connecting the two flanks of the River is the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel, which offers a high-tech passage beneath the Huangpu River. Passengers are carried by small cars and entertained during the short trip by an accompanying soundtrack and a laser show. That was my last night in China. The next time I’ve seen the sun raising it was in Qatar, half way of my journey back to London.
