Top scenic spots receive names

THE new Best Eight Shanghai Scenic Spots received their official names yesterday.

The short names expressed the artistic conception of the spots, the Shanghai Tourism Administration said.

They were selected from 1,500 suggestions contributed by city people in October.

The scenic spots will be heavily promoted during the Shanghai 2010 World Expo.

The new Best Eight, both natural and man-made, represent the city's culture, history and development.

They were picked by more than 33,700 people from all walks of life.

More than 300 scenic areas were recommended.

The administration yesterday released a bilingual book to introduce the eight spots and 100 other candidates that did not make the final cut.

The new names are:

1. The morning bell of the Bund (wai tan chen zhong)

2. The refined rhythm of Yuyuan Garden (yu yuan ya yun)

3. The new splendor of the old Shikumen (jiu li xin hui)

4. Miles of neon light (shi li ni hong)

5. The green of Sheshan Hill (she shan shi cui)

6. Folk art in Fengjing Town (feng jing xun hua)

7. Grand skyscraper city views (mo tian lan sheng)

8. Elegant water views around Dianshan Lake (dian hu huan xiu)
