View from balcony of Fairmont Peace Hotel After a busy day of "urban trekking" across Shanghai, we took a breather and had a drink on the terrace of the Fairmont Peace Hotel overlooking the Bund and New Pudong. Wonderous view, and very classy hotel. The building, once known as the Sassoon House, was built by Victor Sassoon, and is one of the landmark buildings in Old Shanghai. After being taken over by the Communist Party, it was reopened as a hotel in 1956.
