Video of outer Shanghai shows an infinity of buildings
Last week I came across this video posted on Twitter by James O’Malley, showing what the outskirts of Shanghai looked like between two train stations. As O’Malley describes it:
If you’ve ever wondered how China has room for 1.3bn people… this is how.
You have to watch it to believe it, but is it both fascinating and kind of shocking. Shocking in the sense that I know we are only seeing the tip of an iceberg here, and the scale of this city landscape is just remarkable.
