Travel Shanghai China, An amazing city.
I live, work, play in Shanghai, China’s largest city, largest port; a city of 16 million people, (many millions more during holidays and festivals), a city wanting to be biggest, best and most important in world.
If you had been able to Travel Shanghai 10 years ago, and returned today, you would see a very, very different city. Shanghai today is a modern, 21st Century city, with tall, new shiny buildings, amazing nightlights, a wonderland.
Finding old sights and sounds of old city is becoming more difficult as city’s rapid development produces almost instant change, almost everywhere.
Shanghai is a Chinese city of surprises: - a bizarre, and sometimes brutal, colonial history (British, French, American, Italian, Japanese) and dark days exploited as an Opium trade hub. Mix that with ancient Chinese culture and today we have a city urgently trying to leave its colourful past behind and which will soon be compared, in class and elegance, with any major city in world.
When you Travel Shanghai China, you will quickly notice it is power-house of China, money-making machine that drives Chinese economy continually forward.
Shanghai is usually a business destination. However if you are coming for a China vacation, or traveling through on way to somewhere else, Travel Shanghai China has some must-see experiences and is a good way to introduce yourself to wonders and difficulties of Travel in China.
There is still a lot for visitor to see and do in Shanghai. Bars, Clubs, Business, incredible skyline of beautiful tall buildings as far as you can see. The 21st century architecture. However, truth be told, when you Travel Shanghai China, city itself does not have a lot of cultural feel about it. Shanghai is financial center of China.
I could talk all day about what great fun it is to live here; it’s a lively vibrant place that moves at an extraordinarily fast pace.
I will cover some of highlights but you need to see and feel place personally to fully appreciate it.
Some Shanghai Highlights
• The beautiful colonial-style buildings along river; an area called “Bund” where these remarkable buildings from old European days are marvelously lit up at night, and have been beautifully restored; contrast between Old and New is quite a sight.
