Photos of Shanghai in May, 2008 – Part II

I am based in Xujiahui, and I took many "landscape" photos of the area in the last few years. Here are some of the entries:

In those pictures, you can see the surrounding areas of Xujiahui (other district, including Pudong) changed a lot, but the core area of Xujiahui didn’t change too much in the last few years during my blogging.

I’d like to post the "repeated" photos of the area again, just to record what the great area is today, and hopefully some day later, people are able to take it as a "walk back machine" to see of Shanghai "at the beginning of 21th centaury".

The area of old house is always multi-million dollars in value, but the life in the houses still remains miserable – too many people in the same house.


The Boxue Building at the gate of Shanghai Jiao Tong University.


These are the high-raised building built in 1980s or early 1990s. At that time, as the very few skyscrapers of the city, people must be very excited about the heights of the residential area – a sign of development of Shanghai, isn’t it? But now, it looks ugly.

  1. I have a condominium at Orient Manhattan and it is stone’s throw from your office, it used to be a very good residential compound six years ago when it first completed, but now parked vehicles occupied the entire drive way, motor bikes are parked up-stair in front of the door way, dog excrement are littering the pathway and the building starts to show its age.

    Yes, I agree with you, it looks ugly now!
