‘The Tantalising Beat of the Dragon’s Heart’
Shanghai has reinvented itself. Its 20 million inhabitants have been working together to show off the best ever face of vibrant city. After the Expo 2010 -biggest on earth- you can discover the new Shanghai: chic lounges, cosy coffee shops, high standing restaurants and tremendously artistic galleries – finally reaching the top of the world, in third highest building on Earth.
Vertigo is the word that defines how one feels when looking out of the glazed observation deck of the third tallest building in the world: the impressive SWFC located right in the middle of the avenue of 21st century architectural vanities that make up the district of Pudong. Its 492 heart-stopping metres accommodate a hair-raising 101 floors and, to make matters worse, on the 92th floor there’s a nightclub called the 100 Century Avenue. Shanghai is like that. It is a city which likes to gamble, take risks, it alarms us and finally it wins us over.
