China Shanghai 2222_resize
Shanghai is China’s most populous and sophisticated city.  The city’s location at the confluence of the Yangtze and Huangpu Rivers has historically made it a major seaport and an important Asian economic center.  While Shanghai’s recorded history dates back to 4,000 bc, the city’s importance blossomed in the 16th century when it became a commercial textile center.  In the 19th century, Shanghai earned the nickname “Paris of the East” due to its prosperity and the influx of colonial businessmen.  Today, the city continues to serve as the center of Chinese trade and industry.
As one of the world’s largest cities, Shanghai has a unique atmosphere that sets it apart from its Chinese neighbors.  The city’s prosperity and sophistication is evident in the bustling cosmopolitan streets and buildings reminiscent of New York, London, Paris, etc.  Yet, the city has preserved an intriguing mix of old and new, east and west.  Historic avenues and beautiful parks and gardens coexist with busy harbors and crowded streets.  Pagodas, temples, and museums share the city with specialty shops and major businesses.  Some of Shanghai’s best known sites include the Bund, a waterfront promenade located near the old city; the Children’s Palace, a former palatial home converted to a special school where children learn music, dance, and art; and the Shanghai Museum of Art & History, one of the best museums in the country.
