Anyone interested in engineering will love this structure. The twin arch steel trusses and rivets will fascinate engineering students and those who love mechanical puzzles. Also offers a great vantage points for selfies with the bund and monument in the background.

I have a warm spot for The Garden Bridge in that my first trip to Shanghai I stayed at the Broadway Mansions just next to the bridge. I witnessed it's deconstruction and watch it carried away years ago and repaired and brought back in no...More

The bridge looks quite ordinary by day and with all the traffic crossing over it, it looks quite mundane. The backdrop of Astor House and the Russian Consulate make it more impressive on the end of the Bund overlooking the Huangpu River. I've seen it...More

So this bridge which is located at the end of the Bund is unique because last time the Chinese were not allowed to walk here - it is a form of racism during the time of the Opium War. This place was refurbished two times...More

While the bridge itself might not seem interesting at first glance, there is extensive history behind it and it's interesting to see some of Shanghai's older structures surviving alongside it's developing skyline. If you are interested in the historical context, it might also be worth...More

If you start from the historic building; Astor house hotel, Russian consulate and Broadway mansion, just cross this bridge you can start to walk along the Bund.

This bridge is a typical late 1800s' Engineering Bridge Iconic Design. I have noticed that the same classic design-format was used in other applications including "for example" another famous one crossing-over the Nile river in Cairo,Egypt.This Garden-bridge was lit up, very pretty.

The roads around the bridge are so busy so there is lots of pollution. Lorries and loads of taxis right next to the pavement. Blocked damned area at time resulting in no river traffic passing underneath. Not as spectacular review walking along the adjacent promenade.

It's really just an ordinary and small bridge but it looks nice at night when lit up in orange. Its best point is the view from it to the financial area and Pearl Tower, which is why so many people congregate on it for photos,...More

Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but
Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood.
Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during
the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can
still be found in buildings and park monuments.
Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood
throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without
taking you too far away from the city center. Some of
