Shanghai Tower will be ready in 2010 and will rise 632 meters (image No.1 and No.3).


4 important suggestions if you are in Shanghai:


Try Maglev (magnetic levitation train between Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Shanghai city). Very nice.


The taxi is cheap but use subway instead. Much much faster and it's clean.


Never let yourself lead by strangers in any big city in China. They can lead you to restaurants or tea houses and you can easily get a $500 bill...I warn you they can be very nice friendly young people...


If you have to go to the toilet in the city look for the international fast food reastaurants such us McDonald's, KFC, Pizza Hut. They have english toilets and they are clean. Traditional chinesee toilets...well that's another post :-)

I sure would love to try the Maglev, I am fascinated by trains. What an adventure it must be for you to live in China.;))

I was told by a business associate from China(who visited last week) that I should go to Hong Kong first. It only takes one day to get a Visa there. Then from there go to China. He's from Shenzhen.

Love your pictures! Those high rises are beautiful! I could never be a window washer LOL!
