Shanghai: new developments planned for Shiliupu Pier

Located in the Hangpu district, Shiliupu Pier was the city’s main ferry port in the 1980s. Having falling into disuse, it was redeveloped to become one of the water gates to the city for the world exhibition in 2010. But visitor numbers quickly fell. Today, the aim is to attract tourists by creating a transport hub and leisure area. A quayside promenade and viewing point overlooking the cruise ships are due to open to the public by the end of 2018, while a tourist information centre will be built on the opposite bank. There are also plans for hotels, shops and restaurants.
