Century Park deep in Pudong is Shanghai's largest park, modelled after New York's Central Park. It has a central lake with boats, children's play area, and western-style lawns. Entry cost RMB10 and the nearest metro is Century Park station.
By Taxi ---------------------------------------------
By far the most convenient way to get around Shanghai, taxis are plentiful and easy to spot. Most are red Volkswagen Santanas, although they also come in white, yellow, and blue. They are all metered. You can spot the available ones by the red 'For Hire' sign in the window on the passenger side. The Santanas start at Y14.40, with each km (1/2 mi) thereafter costing Y1.60. After 10 km (6 mi), the price per kilometer increases to Y2.70. You also pay for waiting time in traffic. There are other cabs such as Citroens and smaller Volkswagens that start at Y13.50. The really small cabs, the Daihatsu TJ7100, are less comfortable and usually don't have air-conditioning, but the ride is cheaper at a starting rate of Y10.80 and Y1.20 each kilometer thereafter.
Cabs can be hailed on the street or called for by phone. Some major taxi companies are Dazhong Taxi Company (tel. 021/6258-1688), Friendship Taxi Company (tel. 021/6258-3484), and Shanghai Taxi Company (tel. 021/6258-0000).
Most cab drivers don't speak English, so it's best to give them a piece of paper with your destination written in Chinese. Hotel doormen can also help you tell the driver where you're going. It's a good idea to study a map and have some idea where you are, as many drivers will take you for a ride, literally, if they think they can get away with it. You'll usually get where you want to go, but it may take you more time and more money.
Its the Mecca of Tourist Shopping
We went and had some very expensive tea at the old, famous teahouse. $10 for a cup...so not everything is cheap here...
But its also the spot we found the best deals on silk scarves, personalized stamps, jewelry and all sorts of other fabulous gift and shopping items!
Huangpu Jiang Pollution.
This photo here shows a good example of the heavy pollution levels that exist in the Huangpu Jiang... This photo was taken directly from the Bund Promenade itself, and I could have taken photos exactly like this all day long, every minute, and they'd all have completely new and different garbage in them, as new trash streams alongside the Bund, replacing the junk that came immediately before it...
