Drinks on the helipad at The Peninsula Shanghai

As part of ILTM (International Luxury Travel Market) 2014 in Shanghai – an invitation-only event bringing together la crème de la crème of the luxury travel industry, I was invited to a VIP media welcome party to celebrate the opening of the event. This was an opportunity to experience the height of luxury and indulge in the most stunning views of the historic Bund and Pudong skyline from one of the best vantage points in Shanghai – the helipad and the Rosamonde Aviation Lounge at The Peninsula Shanghai. On arrival at the Rosamonde Aviation Lounge we were each presented with a ‘boarding pass’ before taking an elevator up to the helipad to marvel at the stunning view from above a meander in Shanghai’s Huangpu River. Here are a few photographs to share with you from what proved to be a very enjoyable evening. There’s also a panoramic shot that I took of the view that doesn’t quite fit with the image sizes we use on the blog, but can be viewed here.

  1. Is that last pic a cocktail? I can’t work it out!

    Is this like making the perfect kind of cocktail using science? Similar to what Heston does, but with liquids. I like it anyway.

  2. How big is Shanghai port? I have seen many old movies about this place and it was described to be a very busy and expensive city. Do they have many casino there as well? ;-)

  3. Just priceless views from an exclusive party … hope you had an excellent time there, despite all the work that went into creating the posts from this trip!

  4. I hope that you really enjoyed your trip to shanghai paul. Also thanks for sharing the amazing view that you have taken from your camera. I feel that you are lucky one who visited the such a great event.
