Most photogenic areas in Shanghai?

Where are the most photogenic areas in Shanghai? I'm looking for places in the city but up to go a little outside as well. I'm into all kinds of photography.

Zhujiajiao Ancient Town

Zhu Jia Jiao Zhen Ying Pu Jie Dao is situated forty seven kilometers away from Shanghai. It is a typical and ancient water town in Qingpu District, south of the Yangtze River, which has almost 1,700 years of history.


Garden of Contentment (Yuyuan garden)

Garden of Contentment or Yuyuan Garden Station is an ancient place for classical and lovely view to enjoy relaxed ambiance.

The Bund - but get there very early in the morning so you have it to yourself, then go to the other side of the river

Walk next to the Suzhou creek, which ends on the North side of the Bund, you'll see a nice, iron bridge. Walk from the Bund down to the West and you'll pass all sorts of different areas

Try the old towns outside of the city. LIke Zhujiajiao and WuZhen. They are an hour away. In the city limits, try this temple Longhua Temple & Pagoda. Those are the most lovely places. You can also try Chongming Island but get away from the tourists. Lots of random farmers and homesteaders will give you a ride to sleep in their place for the night.

There are are hundreds of great urban panoramas you can see in Shanghai and great photo taking opportunities of some mind-boggling skyscrapers. The highest concentration of the most impressive ones are in Lujiazui in Pudong, Shanghai, but these are best seen from a rooftop bar on the Bund. Captain HostelFu Zhou Lu, has a great terrace where you can have sundowners and take pics of the skyline.

The buildings along the Bund are impressive too, and now the area has been developed it is a lot more pleasant to walk around - nearest metro nanjing dong lu on line 2.

For more nature, there's Century Park (also on line 2 in Pudong) which is nicely landscaped, and for quieter lanes and old houses, the French Concession takes up a huge area, stretching from Xintiandi all the way down to Xujiahui. It's great to get lost in those smaller streets for a while.

You should try to get to a canal town and a number of them are worth visiting, but for comfort and convenience Qibao (not so impressive), and Jiading (much better) are the most convenient because they have access by metro. Jiading is on line 11, and has a very pleasant town centre with canals, bridges, white houses, museums, and a fantastic pagoda. Enjoy your trip!

Cross the river to Pudong Financial district. Go to the Jin Mao Tower and go up to the skywalk. On a clear day you can see ALL of Shanghai AND you are in one of the tallest buildings in the world. Two of the others are on either side of you. This is adjacent Lujiazui district, and it IS bladerunner. Walking around here, the Pearl Tower, etc. is a great place to spend an evening.

The French Concession is definitely a great place to wander and take photos of local life and old architecture! For something more modern try the BUND and Lujiazui (across the river) at night, which feel like scenes straight out of Blade Runner.

Well, would recommend starting at the Bund (both from Pudong, Shanghai side and Pu Xi Lu side) as well as the East Nanjing Pedestrian Street. A good combination of both new and concession era architecture. For a more traditional Chinese city look, I would try getting lost in the narrow streets of Old Town area (Nan Shi Jia Nong) by Yu Garden. The art district around taikang lu is also popular with artistic photographers. Some of the water towns around Shanghai like Wu Zhen have some decent places for photo taking. You might also want to look into walking around the French Concession.
