Yangshan Deep Water Port, located in Shanghai China, ranks as the largest cargo port in the world. Yangshan port is a new port in Hangzhou Bay south of Shanghai. Built to circumvent growth limitations for the Port of Shanghai as a result of shallow waters, it allows berths with depths of up to 15 metres to be built, and is capable of handling the largest container ships today. The port achieves this by building on the offshore islands of Greater and Lesser Yangshan (part of the Zhoushan archipelago), which have been amalgamated by land reclamation and connected to the mainland via the Donghai Bridge, the latter of which was opened on 1 December 2005 as the second-longest ocean bridge in the world at 32.5 km in length. (Hangzhou Bay Bridge in China is the longest sea-crossing bridge in the world at 36 km in length)

Shanghai Metro Museum  上海地铁博物馆
No. 1779 Wuzhong Road

The Shanghai Metro Museum is located near Ziteng Lu metro station. That’s largely uncharted waters, where they have landmarks you’ve never heard of, beyond the point where Line 10 splits and most trains head off to the Hongqiao transport hub. Don’t do that. Take the southern branch towards Hanzhong Lu. You’ll find the 3,000 square meter museum built high over some non-metro train tracks, and surrounded by cranes aggressively advancing retail’s front line.

You wouldn't think a museum devoted to Shanghai's municipal rail system would be necessary, but here it is. 3000 square meters full of dioramas, interactive displays, simulators, and 5D cinemas all explaining and extolling the virtues of the Shanghai Metro.
