The Pearl of Orient. Shanghai is not only China´s largest city. It´s also its most vibrant metropolis, always moving, always awake. Already from 1920s, Shanghai embraced the mix of East and West in every aspect. In the last thirty years, Shanghai has experienced changes that no other city in the world can match. That´s why the old and the new meld perfectly here: from the elegant colonial architecture of the Bund, Shanghai´s premier riverfront, to the Shanghai Tower, the world´s second-tallest building. Shanghai has something for everyone.
