Describe a beautiful city that you know
You should say:
Where the city is
What it is famous for
How you know it
And explain why you think it is beautiful
As for this question, I want to talk about Shanghai. Shanghai is the economic center of China. The most famous view of Shanghai is the Universal Expo of architecture in the bund and the skyscrapers (摩天大楼) in Lujiazui. The architectural complex in the bund consists of 52 buildings in many different styles, such as Gothic Revival, Baroque Revival, and Chinese-western combined style. The architectural complex and the skyscrapers in the Lujiazui Finance and Trade Zone enhanced each other’s beauty (交相辉映). This area is called Wall Street in the east. In fact, in addition to (除了) the well-known scenes, some old buildings in Shanghai are also widely known. I travelled to Shanghai during one summer vacation. I spent a whole day wandering in Longtang, which is the common name for allies in Shanghai. I was fascinated by those Shikumen buildings. Most Shikumen buildings were built in the Concession. Therefore, Shikumen became a new type of architecture that blends(融合) Chinese and Western structural styles. A Shikumen building combines Western and Chinese elements, somehow resembling architecture in the Jiangnan region. However, the general layout of the Shikumen building is like western townhouses. It is a blending of Chinese and western styles, which is very like Shanghai. In my opinion, Shanghai is a beautiful and fascinating city. Modern buildings such as the Oriental Pearl Tower, Jin Mao Tower and Shanghai World Financial Center compose a magnificent skyline(壮观的天际线) across the Bund. At the same time, old Shikumen buildings witness the ups and downs of Shanghai. These landmark buildings record the prosperity (繁荣) of Shanghai and even China's economy.
