The city of Shanghai can only be compared to the city of Shanghai. In 2010, the city of Shanghai hosted the World Expo at a cost of billions of dollars. The world of services was amazed to see the pomp of Shanghai. The Chinese nation has shown how capable they are. And how important they are in today’s world! In this fair which lasted for six months, about six crore guests came to Shanghai.
Shanghai is changing every day. Something is being made every day. Sometimes it is so fast that even the locals are deceived. Many cities in the world like London, Paris, Italy, Tokyo, New York, Shanghai is world famous for its uniqueness.
One of the most expensive cities in the world, Shanghai is the largest city in China. But until recently, the city was nothing more than a small fishing village. Unlike other famous cities in China, the city has no glorious past history. The story of becoming a glittering city in the twinkling of an eye seems to beat the story of a fairy tale. Standing by the Huangpu River, you can simultaneously see the past, present and future of Shanghai. The future of Shanghai can be easily guessed by looking at the series of historical monuments made by the British, French and Portuguese on one side of the river and all the architectures of the present era on one side.
The name of the place by the river is “Bund”. Standing there, I felt as if I had moved to a future city of science fiction like the Hollywood movie. Strange beauty.
Jin Mao Tower, World Financial Center, Oriental Pearl TV Tower are already known as the best architecture in the world. Right in the middle of these is another magnificent skyscraper called the Shanghai Tower. It is the second tallest building in the world after the Burj Al Khalifa in Dubai. Next time, I will not miss the opportunity to climb this amazing tower. It costs about 2400 TK to get up. The elevator in this tower is currently the fastest elevator in the world. It takes only 5 minutes to climb 1900 meters.
There is no alternative to the metro to get around Shanghai. The Shanghai metro line is the fastest growing rapid transit system in the world. The first line was built in 1993. Increasingly, it has now come to the 28th line. It is still growing. In this expensive city, this one genie is cheap. You can go from one end of the city to the other in an instant by spending only 40/50 TK. The first line from Uttara to Motijheel in our country will be in 19 or so so I heard.
