"Shanghai pre World Expo 2010" Shanghai by marielexoteria

Shanghai Travel Guide: 3,086 reviews and 8,184 photos

We went to Shanghai on the night train from Beijing. We got there the morning after and saw a lot of preparations for the World Expo 2010. A lot of work was being done by Shanghai Railway Station and surrounding blocks and it looks like the Shanghainese (Shanghainers?) are excited about this.

Shanghai looks like what I thought the future would look like when I was a young child and the only thing missing was the hover cars hehe but they have the Maglev from the airport so maybe they'll get there.... What I remember the most is the avant-garde skyline, wow.

This is one of the many mascots of the World Expo that we saw. This big one was on East Nanjin Road.
