The Pulse of China
From the second tallest building in the world to the largest Disney Land to be, the economic centre of China never hides its ambition. If you are here to look for China's old image of an oriental country, the metropolis with the most skyscrapers might turn you down. Yet the modern image with a Chinese spiritual core you can't find anywhere will surprise you. Indulge yourself in the world's tallest hotel J Hotel, a brand of China its own, savour yourself in the Michelin-starred restaurants set in the historical British Colony Architectures along the bund or chill out at the Xintiandi, an entertainment and eating area of reconstituted traditional mid-19th century shikumen ("stone gate") houses on the narrow alley. Shanghai is the perfect present in modern China.
World Class Skylines
Shanghai is one of the world's most vertical cities, a metropolis where 50-story buildings are routine. At night, the cityscape is so cinematic, it has been featured in both James Bond and Mission Impossible films.
Mixing art deco, Postmodernist, neoclassical, ubermodern and just plain kitsch, Shanghai is a stimulating portrait of architectural treasures.
"Backyard" of Shanghai
There are total 8 ancient water towns within 130Km distance from Shanghai downtown, they're all located within a
day's drive from Shanghai and won't take you more than a day or two to explore.
City of Contrasts
Shanghai is a city of contrast. The new, the old, the modern, the traditional, and all the glam it came along with from even during the ancient times.
