Pudong (Chinese: 浦东) is an area of Shanghai, China, located along the east side of the Huangpu River, across from the historic city center of Shanghai in Puxi. Pudong literary translate to “Huangpu East Bank”, while Puxi literary translate to “Huangpu West Bank”.
Formerly a little-developed agricultural area linked only by ferries, Pudong has grown rapidly since the 1990s and emerged as China’s financial and commercial hub.
Pictured on the left is Oriental Pearl tower, while in distance in the middle (which my little daughter said it looks like a handbag), is the world’s third tallest building, Shanghai World Financial Center (at the time of the visit). This photo was taken last year during my trip in China.
