Lujiazui


Lujiazui

Lujiazui (zh-stp|s=陆家嘴|t=陸家嘴|p=Lùjiāzuǐ) is an important financial district in Pudong, Shanghai. In 2005 the State Council reaffirmed the positioning of the 31.78 km² Lujiazui area, as the only finance and trade zone among the 185 state-level development zones on the mainland China.

Geography

Lujiazui, which literally means "Lu's Mouth", is located in the Pudong New District on the eastern bank of Huangpu River. It forms a peninsula on a bend of the Huangpu river, which turns from flowing north to flowing east. The importance of Lujiazui stems from the fact that it lies directly across the river from the Bund, the old financial and business district of Shanghai, and just south of the confluence of the Suzhou Creek with the Huangpu River. Until the 1980s, Lujiazui was a relatively low-built area, featuring residential houses, warehouses, and factories.

Landmarks

Popular tourist attractions and other important locations in Lujiazui include:
* Oriental Pearl Tower
* Jin Mao Building
* Bank of China Tower
* Shanghai World Financial Center

Transportation

Lujiazui can be reached by taking Shanghai Metro Line 2 to Lujiazui station. In addition, after the opening of Shanghai Metro Line 4, it can be reached at Pudong Avenue Station.
