Urban Planning Museum
Visit the Urban Planning Museum in People's Square.
Shanghai is constantly expanding to accommodate the ever-growing business and trade that the city attracts. As recently as 20 years ago, the financial district of the city, Pudong, was nothing but farmland, dotted with small homesteads and Taoist temples. Visit the Urban Planning Museum in People’s Square to get a real sense of the city’s expansion – it features a scale model of the city, as well as photographs of how the city used to look and the future developments planned for the city as it fulfils its role as the financial and trade hub for China.
