LujiazuiShanghai

Climb the innovative towers in this financial district for unobstructed views of Shanghai’s mesmerizing cityscape and stroll along the riverside.

Lujiazui is a developed zone on a peninsula of the Huangpu River in Shanghai. The many skyscrapers that adorn its skyline come in varied shapes and sizes, creating a futuristic setting. Visit the area at night to see the city come alive with dazzling lights.

Among the highlights is the Jin Mao Tower, which is 1,380 feet (420 meters) tall. Visit its shopping mall and consider staying at its Grand Hyatt Shanghai, one of the highest hotels in the world. Ascend to the Skywalk observation deck on the 88th floor for spectacular vistas of Shanghai and of the hotel lobby below your feet. Spot the iconic ball-like domes of the Oriental Pearl Tower, which has become a symbol of Shanghai.

In addition to skyscrapers, this district is known for scenic waterside trails. Follow the Riverside Promenade of paved sidewalks and monuments. Inspect the Shanghai People’s Heroes Monument in Huangpu Park. The structure pays tribute to revolutionary martyrs and artistically depicts three tall rifles.

Cross the enormous Nanpu Bridge; its western end culminates in a layered swirl. On the opposite side of the river is pleasant Nanpu Square Park. Get a sense of the local culture and history at the Shanghai Feng Tianxing Stone Museum and the Waitan History Museum. Visit the Wu Changshuo Memorial Hall for a closer look at the works of its namesake 19th-century painter and calligrapher.

Note that the name of the neighborhood is Chinese for Lu’s Mouth, in reference to politician and scholar Lu Shen from the Ming Dynasty.

The zone juts out into a bend in the Huangpu River in the Pudong New District of central Shanghai. Take a water taxi to travel up and down the river or get to this neighborhood via the city’s metro system. Shanghai Pudong International Airport is 25 miles (40 kilometers) east.

Lujiazui is a dynamic and bustling financial center, known for its modern towers and scenic river overlooks.
