I have lived and worked in Pudong since August 2004. I would be glad to try and answer any questions you may have about Pudong, or about Shanghai in general.
Pudong literally means East of Huangpu. Pudong is bounded by the Huangpu river in the west and the East China Sea in the east. It has an area of 522.8 km² and a population of approximately 1.5 million people.
Pudong used to be mainly farmland and countryside until 1990, when the Chinese government decided to set up a Special Economic Zone in the district. The western tip of the Pudong district is the new financial hub of the modern China called the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone. Several landmark buildings were constructed in Lujiazui during 1990s to raise the image and awareness of the area. These include the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and the Jin Mao Building (the tallest in China). Currently under construction is the Mori Building, located next to the Jin Mao Building, which will be even taller.
