Along Shanghai’s Bund waterfront are dozens of old buildings in gothic, baroque and neoclassical styles that once housed banks and trading houses. Across the Huangpu River, Pudong’s Lujiazui is home to the iconic Oriental Pearl Radio and TV Tower. It has become a symbol of China’s reform and opening-up and the epitome of Shanghai’s modernization.
