People's Square

The new center of the city

The People's Square in Shanghai covers an impressive 140,000 feet of ground. It is not just brick and concrete, but also green patches and trees. Among the most impressive buildings surrounding the square is the Municipal Government Mansion, which is stately and impressive. The Shanghai Grand Theatre, also situated here is made entirely of glass and is most attractive at night as the city lights bounce off its walls. The most impressive building here, though, is the Shanghai Museum which was designed to look like a Chinese cooking pot. There is a quirky Bird and Flower market tucked away in the corner. The square, although surrounded on all sides by buildings, is a great place to view the city from. The rapidly constructed and ever changing buildings are an accurate portrayal of this fast paced and developing Chinese city.
