Beautiful Shanghai from on top

15 Jul

I came across these great photos of Shanghai from a Shanghaiist post. It’s taken by a photographer, who I presume is Chinese, from atop the Shanghai Tower, which is under construction but will be the world’s second tallest tower when completed. Already you can see the tower has dwarfed the Shanghai World Financial Center (the one with the big squarish hole at its top) and the Jin Mao tower (to the left of the SWFC), both quite high themselves.

For comparison, check these photos I took earlier this February when I was in Shanghai.

The Jin Mao tower is in the center, with the SWFC on its left, and the Shanghai Tower on its right.

From the base of the SWFC from one side looking up, it looks like a knife. The Shanghai Tower can be seen under construction at right.
