At the end of 2016 I visited this exibition centre. And there someone robbed my bag that's in my passport and money. And the police couldnt help me about to find my bag. This center ia very big and crowded. People has to be careful.

Soviet-era architecture! Imposing columns and in-your-face prominence. Never went to an exhibition there, but the appearance from outside is quite interesting.

This building, constructed in the 1950s wasFriendship building. The building itself is of typical Soviet era design with a tall colonnaded spire. It's an interesting looking building purely architecturally speaking, though as an exhibition centre not too impressive.

This place is a really nice place to see outside, but inside it is empty, except during events. It's really nice visit it during exhibitions otherwise it's a waste of time! It is a little bit distance from people square (18 yuan of taxi).

This is really one big empty shell, but from the outside all lit-up, it is another landmark. Other than that, not much to it

The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple,
while the main artery of excitement and entertainment
is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French
Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign
residents but displays a more commercial character.
Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and
trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing
Road, but areas off the busy street have the same
