Pudong or Puxi?

Recommended Posts

Katrina    0

One of the resounding questions common amongst expatriates prior to their move is “which side of the river to live – Pudong or Puxi?”. Whilst it often boils down to where you or your husband may work, as well as proximity to preferred schools, it is often hard to find photos of the different areas on offer within Shanghai.

Prior to our ‘look-see’ trip I was fifteen weeks pregnant, a little apprehensive about the move, and would have loved one of my numerous Internet searches of Pudong to return something more than a picture of The Oriental Pearl Tower. I hope these photos provide a good glimpse of one area in Pudong.

They concentrate on the Century Park area, which is home to the Shanghai Oriental Art Centre, The Science and Technology Museum, the market which is commonly referred to as “The Fake Goods Market”, a new retail complex and of course the park itself. The park offers a large expanse of greenery that for a small entry fee attracts many locals who take advantage of the lake activities, well maintained gardens and the green grass as they escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

Everyone needs to make their own decision about the place in which they will fit best however I hope this may help other Mamas and Mamas-to-be visualize just one small piece of Shanghai.
