Exciting Donghai Bridge and New Habor City

What is my favorite suburb place to go in Shanghai (with the context that I have a car)? It changes along with time. Here are some places on my previous favorite list:

  • Sheshan 佘山, the only mountains in Shanghai. Don’t laugh if you know it is only 99 meters high – 1/2 of the building I work everyday, and 1/4 of the tallest building in this city. They just built a wonderful lake nearby.
  • Fengxian 奉贤 Sea Shore. It is south of Shanghai. You can see the sea there – the sea is yellow, and there is no way that you can swim there. Recently, the local government spent huge to bring sands from Dalian 大连 and created a artifical sand land there. Hope the water will be better.

Now my list added a new one – Dong Hai Bridge and nearby Habor City. Let me tell you how to get there, and what you can expect in this new land in Shanghai. I recommend you to go there and experience.


By Car: use A20, and turn A2. It is the end of A2. There is a large conjunction at southeast corner of A20 ring road. It has two branches, one is A1, going to Pudong Airport, the other is A2, going to Donghai bridge.

From Pudong Airport: They just opened a new shuttle bus, Pudong Airport Shuttle Bus No. 8, connecting Pudong Airport (PVG) to Dong Hai Bridge.

From downtown: Take Metro #2, and transit to Longgang Express 龙港快线.
