The People’s Square
The People’s Square, also called “Ren Min Guang Chang”, is in the heart of Shanghai and the south side of the People’s Park. It was once a large stretch of cement land, now a center public square with vast green area and surrounded by government buildings. The square attracts many people, so it’s a great place for people watching: the joyful kite-flyers, young children, parents, and grandparents, young lovers, etc. The impressive Shanghai Museum is worth a visit to see Chinese calligraphy, pottery, jade ornaments, etc. Crystal Shanghai Grand Theatre is good to see. The underground mall is a good place to shop too. The People’s Square offers unusual and inside views of Shanghai. It combines the flavor of Chinese traditional culture with the modern city in one, presenting an accurate image of this changing and sophisticated modern city.
