Shanghai

Shanghai is China's largest metropolis and is the business and financial centre of the nation. The city has experienced a tremendous building boom and skyscrapers have shot up everywhere. In Pudong on the banks of the Huangpu River the impressive towers and skyscrapers rise up, with the Jin Mao Tower being the highest building in China. The Bund, or Waitan, is a wonderful promenade along the river in what was once the "European Settlement" in Shanghai. Beautiful colonial-era and historical buildings in several architectural styles are found here. The Shanghai Museum has a wealth of Chinese cultural exhibits, and the Yu Yuan Gardens is a wonderful park where many locals come to do Tai Chi or to seek rest and relaxation.
