Panoramas of Shanghai from 38th floor of Hilton, Jingan Temple area.

Here are three low res panoramas I stitched together. The panoramas are from images taken from the 38th floor Executive Lounge at the Shanghai Hilton Hotel located in the Jingan Temple area on the afternoon of 19 July. The first view pans from the North East (JC Mandarin Hotel) to the South West (Jingan Hotel - now closed). Visible are most of the bridges crossing the Huangpu River and many notable buildings.

Here is the middle section.

The second panorama spans from the South to the North West (Jingan Hotel - now closed) to the Shanghai Summit Shopping City and part of the Hilon itself.

The third panorama, and still in need of some more work to correct for distortion spans from the West (Shanghai Summit Shopping City) to the North (new 66 story Wheelock Square tower next to the Yanan Expressway on Changshu Rd).

Building and urban density is fairly uniform and spans to the horizon in all directions, 360 degrees, as seen from the 38th floor of the Hilton.

Pudong needs more tall buildings behind the SWFC. It's kind of weird to see a big drop of skyline once it's past the SWFC. Other than like, Shanghai is amazing
