Photo Of The Day: Shanghai's Ancient River Town

Shanghai is the most populated city in the world, with buildings literally as far as the eye can see, but that's partly because of reduced visibility from pollution. It's hard to believe that this river oasis is located within China's most commercial city. Qibao, one of the oldest towns still remaining within Shanghai, is photographed here by Nelson Ni, who perfectly captured the calm within the chaos of the city.

Nelson submitted his photo to us via Instagram by tagging his photo with #Gadling and mentioning us, @GadlingTravel. You can always submit your own photo to be featured as our Photo of the Day by doing the same, as well as submitting it to our Gadling Flickr Pool.
