Build with the technological help from Germany, Shanghai Maglev Train (SMT) has been operating since the end of 2002. It is the world's first and only commercialized maglev train line in operation. It runs from Pudong International Airport to Longyang Rd. The station is located at the intersection of Longyang Road and Baiyang Road in Pudong New Area. Duration of a single journey is 8 minutes.
This large creative district is the urban ghetto of Shanghai's art scene, set amongst the backdrop of restored factories and home to the infamous Shanghai graffiti wall. With a collection of modern and contemporary art galleries constantly churning out new and exciting exhibitions, M50 remains one of the most innovative places to see free art in the city.
Shikumen (literally meaning "stone-framed door") buildings refer to two- or three-story structures resembling Anglo-American terrace houses or townhouses, distinguished by high brick walls enclosing a narrow front yard. The name "stone gate" references these strong gateways. Each residence abuts another and all are arranged in straight side alleys called longtang. The entrance to each alley is usually surmounted by a stylistic stone arch. Behind the stone-frame front door of a shikumen house lies a small courtyard, which is itself enclosed on the other sides by the building of the house. Shikumen houses are unique to Shanghai, and sadly disappearing all too fast in the face of rampant development.

He collected many unusually-shaped lake stones in the garden, among which Guan Yun Feng is the most precious one and gains honor for the garden.
