  • Situated at the mouth of Yangtze River, Shanghai has become the most influential economic, financial, international trade, cultural, science and technology and tourism center in East China.

Over the last decade Shanghai has blossomed into a modern city that is a unique blend of traditional Chinese and modern Western cultures all of which is evident by simply looking at its skyline and people. Being centrally located in Eastern China Shanghai has become a busy hub for travelers who wish to visit other popular Chinese destinations as well. An important air, rail, bus and water transport hub Shanghai is the perfect place for visitors to Eastern China to either start or end their visit.

Like any metropolitan city of the world Shanghai is abundant in dinning, shopping, nightlife, culture and art, and tourist attractions.

Nanjing Road is one place to go, with the areas around Huaihai and North Sichuan Road also gaining in popularity with Chinese and foreigners alike. A large bustling city like Shanghai would not be complete without some large shopping centers and the Xujiahui Shopping Center, Yuyuan Shopping City and Jiali Sleepless City are also great places for shopaholics to visit.

If it’s nightlife you are after the Bund has always been the area for night owls. Situated on the banks of the Huangpu River, the Bund is an iconic symbol of both the old and new Shanghai.
