Shanghai is China’s largest city, and a global economic heavyweight. Experience Chinese culture, eat great food, get to know the history and customs, and meet the friendly people of one of the biggest Asian countries.
Along the Huangpu River you can see some of the most impressive buildings in the world. The viewing platform of the World Financial Center is 474 m high and can be visited day or night. The city has long welcomed foreign companies and thus has a large selection of art deco buildings.
Many of Shanghai’s pleasures are intimate and traditional. Take the time to visit a tea house. It will give you a feel for the city’s heyday in the 1930s. The Jinshan Donglin temple is also a must. More than 700 years old, it is a beautiful sight with its golden towers, large bronze door and 27 m high statue.
