Those stymied by the paucity of info available on Bangkok development will be astonished at these bold plans for Shanghai. In the heart of Shanghai stands the multistory Urban Planning Museum, the highlight of which is an extensive model promoting future Shanghai. Part propaganda and part history museum, the exhibits display a unique zeal for modernity in a city where rampant development is unhampered by the multiparty politicking that dogs Thai projects.
