Shanghai is the largest and the most developed metropolis in Mainland China. Pudong is Shanghai's main international airport, 40 km to the east of the city.

Some of the tallest and most inspiring structures in Asia and the world can be found along the Huangpu River bank in Pudong's Lujiazui District. Two considerable mentions are Oriental Pearl Tower, one of the tallest structures in Asia, providing visitors with city views or light shows at night from below and Jin Mao Tower which is a staggering 88-storey behemoth. It is home to the Shanghai World Financial Center and has the world's highest observation deck at 474 m (1555 ft). For a taste of 1920s Shanghai, head for the old buildings of the The Bund or the French Concession.

Shop until you drop on China's premier shopping street Nanjing Road or head for the Yuyuan Bazaar for Chinese crafts and jewellery not far from the Bund.

The area is fast becoming famous for boutique shopping along Xinle Rd, Changle Rd and Anfu Rd, all of which also have interesting restaurants.

The name Shanghai means “above the sea”, but paradoxically, the local preference for fish often tends toward the freshwater variety due to the city's location at the mouth of China's longest river.
