With a population estimated at over 23 million, Shanghai is China's most developed city, as well as one of the world's busiest ports. The Huangpu River, known to locals as "Mother River" runs through the city highlighting the historical architecture of the renowned Bund waterfront district and Shanghai's spectacular skyline. Just opposite the Bund at the tip of the Lujiazui peninsula sits the Oriental Pearl Tower, one of the tallest structures in Asia. The tower's tremendous views make it one of the city's most popular sites, attracting millions of visitors each year.
Located in the heart of the Old City and dating back over four centuries, Yu Yuan Garden is a lavish oasis and one of the most popular attractions in the region featuring classical Chinese architecture.
Travelers seeking a moment of meditation or enlightenment may opt to visit the Jade Buddha Temple. Located in the western part of Shanghai, this peaceful setting is known for its two Buddhist statues carved from sparkling white jade and encrusted with precious stones.
On the outskirts of the city one can explore ancient water villages that retain traces of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Zhu Jia Jiao, known as "the Venice of Shanghai" has the most well preserved stone bridges and picturesque buildings lining its riverbanks and canals.
Shanghai is a fascinating mix of East and West, ancient and modern, that offers something for everyone. From temples, landmarks, gardens and museums to shopping for silk handicrafts and tasting culinary delicacies, visitors can explore and get a sense of Shanghai's impressive history and diversity.
