Pudong is the exciting new face of modern Shanghai and home to a huge array of attractions. Pudong is large, and the area most people will instantly know is Lujiazui which is located directly across from the Bund on the banks of the Huangpu River. Its full name is Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone, and it’s home to the Shanghai Stock Exchange, the Oriental Pearl Tower, the Jin Mao Tower, the Shanghai World Financial Center, and the Shanghai Tower.
Beyond Lujiazui, Pudong New Area includes the Port of Shanghai, the Shanghai Expo and Century Park, Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, Shanghai Pudong International Airport, the Jiuduansha Wetland Nature Reserve, and the Shanghai Disneyland Resort.
That’s probably hard to picture, so I’ll present a map outlining the area and also feature all the attractions of Pudong, plus the top places to stay.
