Introduction to Shanghai

Shanghai, the trade and financial center of China, is an ideal port located in the central-eastern part of the country. With over 700 hundred years of history, the city comprises both Eastern and Western architecture and culture. In the last two decades Shanghai has been one of the fastest developing cities in the world. Shanghai is one of the main industrial centers of China, playing a key role in China's heavy industries. 
Shanghai, China's largest city, offers many exciting sightseeing opportunities for travelers. Despite having a population of more than 24 million, this always busy city offers quieter historic districts and attractions alongside its many newer tourist sites. One of the world's busiest container ports thanks to its position at the mouth of the Yangtze River, the city also provides opportunities for exploration by water along the Chinese coast and its inland waterways.
