Travel around the HUB
The Hongqiao Business District, dubbed the “new Lujiazui”, has been spruced up with all sorts of upscale and high-end facilities to accommodate the 110,000 business people living and working inside. It is also a desirable place for entertainment-seeking travellers and residents from nearby districts in Shanghai.
Pacing through buildings and walking the modern street blocks, people can easily spot the “Welcome to THE HUB” signs, often beside its large-eyed mascot “Bada”. This is Hongqiao Tiandi, aka THE HUB.
