Swing by the concierge desk at The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong and grab a jogging route map, which will lead you on a run along the Huangpu River’s Pudong-side promenade. From the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, you’ll pass Binjiang Park, a nice place to take a break; and if you bring your camera, you can snap some shots of the Bund’s historic architecture. We should note that jogging is not widespread in China, and it hasn’t really caught on in Shanghai. If you see any other joggers, they likely will be foreigners. While Shanghai has what the locals call “blue-sky days,” the city is plagued with a pollution problem. So even if you can run for miles at home, you might find yourself running out of breath quickly while in Shanghai.
