HuangPu Introduction

Huangpu is located in central Shanghai, People's Republic of China o­n the banks of Huangpu river, after which the district is named. It is opposite to Pudong and borders Suzhou Creek。Huangpu District , also known as New Huangpu, is o­ne of Shanghai's 18 districts. It was combined from old Huangpu and Nanshi districts in 2000 to form the New Huangpu with an area of 12.41 km² and 574,500 inhabitants (as of 2002). Huangpu is o­ne of the most densely populated urban districts in the world.
Huangpu district is the most important shopping area of Shanghai including eastern section of the famous Nanjing Road. People's Square, Shanghai Grand Theatre, Shanghai Museum and Shanghai Natural History Museum are located in this district. Shanghai's most famous tourist attraction and historically important The Bund is also a part of Huangpu district.
Huangpu, Whangpoo, or Hwangpoo, river, 60 mi (97 km) long, rising in the lake district of Shanghai Municipality, E China, and flowing NE past Shanghai into the Chang estuary at Wusong. It is a major navigational route. Its dredged channel, lined with wharves, warehouses, and industrial plants, provides access to Shanghai for oceangoing vessels. The river is also a major water source for Shanghai, and as the city has grown it has suffered from water shortages and polluted drinking water; in 1996 a project to divert water from the Chang River (Yangtze) to the Huangpu was completed.

HuangPu Traffic

Hongqiao International Airport in western Shanghai, about 15 kilometers from the city center, handles all international flights. By taxi, the trip from the airport will take you about 30 min. to an hour. A new Shanghai International Airport in Pudong opened o­n October 1, 1999, although is not yet fully operational.
The base fare for every taxi in Shanghai is 11RMB. For this amount, you will get virtually anywhere within o­ne or two districts in the city – if you never have to wait at in traffic, the fare will not increase for the first 3 Kilometers.  However, the stand-still time will affect the fare, so if you are stuck in traffic the fare will still increase faster than 3K.  The base fare rises to 14RMB after 11pm.
The cheap price of the taxis and their convenience makes them extremely popular.  This is especially the case in the winter and o­n rainy days, when a taxi is virtually impossible to come by.  If you are staying in a hotel and are desperate, I recommend calling your concierge and having a taxi ordered to your location.  This costs and extra 4RMB, and an additional 15RMB if you are traveling o­ne way from Puxi to Pudong (for the driver’s return) – but this would be completely worth it if you have no other choice! Also keep in mind that traffic can be horrible in Shanghai, so when you need to arrive o­n time, the subway could be more reliable.
