Day 19: Shanghai Nights

After three days in the mountains of eastern China, the final night of our North China Getaway tour brought us back to Shanghai. Our group headed into Pudong—Shanghai’s skyscraper district—to see the skyline at night, highlighted by the dazzling light display of the Oriental Pearl Tower.


Three behemoths of the Shanghai Skyline. At left, the World Financial Center houses the world's second-highest hotel. In the center, Jin Mao Tower was once China's tallest building. At right, China's current champion is Shanghai Tower, the world's second-tallest building.
