Shanghai Day 5 - Drupal Tour 2016

By Eduardo García ● CTO | March 30th, 2016

Back to Shanghai, I did a group with Matthew Parker from Canada and Jacob Redding from the USA to do some sightseeing in the city.

Our first stop was in South Bund Fabric Market where Jacob order to manufacture some shirts, the price for a shirt was about USD 15 a full suit about USD 200; the prices were indeed good.

After having a lunch in the financial district, we visited the Oriental Pearl Tower, it’s not the taller structure in Shanghai, but it’s the second taller tourist tower in the world.

The tower at the top was named “Space Capsule” the view wasn’t good due the glass was dirty, I can imagine how difficult is clean that, but common that is your business, that floor was located at 350 meters. In the floor bellow was located at 263 meters the view was quite better here, but the visibility of the city wasn’t good due the level of pollution which was 160 AQI according to World Air Quality Index team which is unhealthy.

The best part of the tower is a transparent observatory, where you can walk on a glass floor and deal with your levels of Acrophobia.

At the bottom of the tower, you could visit a Shanghai History Museum.

At night, I went to IT Consultis office to meet with some developers and his Chief Operating Officer. Their office is located close to French concession neighborhood so went to in bar to have some drink about how is working in China society.
