IMAG0689Shanghai has a very unique set of architectural styles that define its history and cultural heritage. The Huangpu river splits the city into two sections. On one side sits a newly revitalized financial district and on the other, imperialist era European style buildings. During my visit in Shanghai I stayed on the bund which is surrounded by fantastic neoclassical and art deco architecture from the 20th century.IMAG0703IMAG0744IMAG0692Crossing over from one side to the other requires a ferry ride or you can take an exhilarating ride through a light tunnel. IMAG0739 IMAG0761IMAG0756
