"Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall City model" Urban Planning Exhibition Hall Tip by Willettsworld

This is the huge scale model of the city inside the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall in People's Square. The model shows all existing and approved buildings. You can view the model at "ground level", or ascend a gallery running around it for views from above. The model is intended to represent the entire city, including all planned developments. However, a few stout pillars, necessitated by the building design, penetrate the scale model. This means certain areas are missing from the model, and views of the model are sometimes obscured by the columns. If you hang around long enough, the lights are dipped so as to simulate night-time and the model is illuminated.

Admission: Y30.
