In the autumn of 2009, which coincided with the 60th anniversary of the People's Republic of China, enthusiastic Shanghai residents and invited experts participated in the exercise to vote on "Shanghai's Eight New Attractions". Candidates included financial Lujiazui, bustling Nanjing Road, the waterfront New Bund and quaint Yu Garden. In stark contrast to the traditional sights like Huangpu Qiutao (autumn waves on Huangpu river), Haitian Xuri (rising sun on the horizon), Longhua Wanzhong (chiming bell of Longhua Temple at night), Shiliang Yueye (moonlit night at Shiliang), the eight new attractions speak volumes of what the people of Shanghai have achieved in the past six decades.
