Shanghai, the hosting city of the ongoing China International Import Expo (CIIE), is embracing visitors and attendees from around the world.
Many were amazed by not only its highly developed economy, but also the city's mixed style of old and new, modernity and tradition.
Along the Huangpu River, the ancient structures along the Bund remain to be the most iconic landmarks of the city, which have witnessed the dramatic changes. While on the other side of the river, skyscrapers have formed the city's new skyline.
The renowned Nanjing Road, sheltering quite a number of fashion brands, laid the foundation more than a century ago.
At the center of the city, the Yu Garden which was constructed in 1559 in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), still sheltered a corner of the traditional Chinese structures at the hub of Shanghai's most flourishing commercial areas.
In the interactive page of CGTN's special coverage for CIIE, we have brought you a special opportunity to shuttle along the time tunnel. Pull the arrow mark on each of the following pictures of the project “Shanghai, Old and New” and turn the pages of the history.
