Description

The vibrant metropolis of Shanghai has seen phenomenal growth over the last 25 years and is now a global financial centre with a skyline crammed full of modern gleaming skyscrapers overlooking the Shanghai of old with its classical Chinese architecture and pagodas. Situated in the East of the country, Shanghai is China’s largest city and is home to over 23 million people. It is one of the largest seaports in the world and is more or less split into two by the Huangpu River. The mix of the modern cosmopolitan vibe and the traditional Chinese culture is a great draw for tourists as it offers a variety of experiences.

One of the city’s most exciting adventures is to take a tour up and around Shanghai’s most remarkable skyscrapers. Some of the most impressive ones include the 88 storey Jin Mao Tower which is home to the Grand Hyatt hotel and features the world’s longest laundry chute! The Shanghai Financial Centre boasts the world’s tallest observation deck on the 100th floor, complete with a transparent glass walled corridor offering a great view of the city. Next to these two skyscrapers is the Shanghai Tower, which is due to complete construction in 2014 and will be the tallest out of the trio with its unique twisting tower.

To escape from the skyscrapers of modern Shanghai, take a trip to Yu Yuan Garden or the Garden of Peace which has over 5 acres of gardens and 30 pavilions to stroll around at your own pace.

A great way to see some of the main sights is to take a river cruise along the Huangpu. From here you will see The Bund (Shanghai’s famous waterfront), Jin Mao Tower, Huangpu Park and many other sights. Evening cruises give an alternative aspect of the glittering skyscrapers at night. For shopping, head to Nanjing Road with its masses of shops and restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets.
