Shanghai is developing so rapidly that its urban map has to beupgraded every six months. One obvious phenomenon is that thegreen belts are getting increasingly larger. At the end of 2002, per-capita green areas reached seven square meters and the coverage rateamounted to 27 percent. Per-capita landscaped areas in Shanghai havegrown from newspaper-size to room-size, leading every large and me-dium-sized city in China. In early years of the 21st century, Shanghaiwon a "City Sustainable Development Contribution" award from theUnited Nations. Like other international metropolises, Shanghai isdensely populated, but has found ways to develop green areas. Exist-ing green areas are fully utilized. Intimidating brick walls enclosingsome public institutions have been demolished or replaced with rail-ings, to share the greenery within. As well, to their merit, nearly allthe Shanghai parks are free of charge to visitors. The city has takenon a new look.
Like many great cities, Shanghai has its own mother river ——the Huangpu, which has always nourished the people on its two banks. The Huangpu River, totaling 114 kilometers long, rises in the Taihu Lake, Jiangsu/Province and flows through the urban area of Shang- hai, and then empties into the mouth of the Yangtze River at the northeast Shanghai. Touring the river in a pleasure boat, you can en- joy the picturesque scenery along both the riversides, as you are transported between the city's past, present and future.
