About Shanghai

Shanghai is the largest city in mainland China. Not just the city is big and densely populated but it is the most developed metropolis in the country. For the past two decades, Shanghai has emerged as one of the favorite destinations for international tours in the world.

Being divided by the Huangpu River in two parts, the western part of the city is known as Puxi while the eastern part is known as Pudong. The west of the river (Puxi) is the older central part of the city and east of the river (Pudong) is the place of new sky high buildings and other developments.

Broadly speaking, Shanghai is an amalgamation of the traditions of East with the culture of West. The scene of old traditional Chinese houses along with the touch of European design is just spectacular. The city also holds the reputation of having the most number of Art Deco buildings in the world.

Shanghai is also one of the main industrial hubs of the country. People from all over China, no matter if they are graduates seeking jobs or farmers looking for labor work, come to the city for career opportunities. So it is only logical that the property rates in Shanghai are sky high. It is almost impossible to own a house in here.

There are two main airports in Shanghai, namely Pudong and Hongqiao, which handle the domestic and international flights to and from the city. Subway and buses connect the airport to the internal parts of the city. You can also use the bus service at the airport to reach the neighboring cities of Shanghai.

Metro, taxi, and train also connect Shanghai to the neighboring regions. Aside from these conventional methods of transport, Boat and Car can also take you to Shanghai based on your location. To travel inside the city, metro is the most convenient way to move around. Alternatively, you can also move via bus, taxi, ferry, rented bicycle, rented car, rented scooter, and E-bike.

The places worth visiting in Shanghai include the beautiful gardens of the city. The Yuyuan Gardens are known to exhibit the ancient Chinese architecture and feel. The tall buildings of the city showcase the modern architectural excellence of Shanghai in all its glory. There are also several places in the city where you can get a glimpse of the classical western architecture. For a serene and calm evening, visiting the Shanghai Museum can be your best bet. The temples of the region are also worth a visit.

Taking a boat ride in the river is perfect to witness the skyline of Shanghai. The sceneries at the river bank are sure to register in your mind for years to remember. There are also various theme parks and amusement parks in Shanghai which call for a day full of fun and enjoyment. You can also go visit the Shanghai City Beach which resides on the northern bank of Hangzhou Bay. The natural sceneries at the beach are astonishingly lovely.

Dining: The dishes of Shanghai reflect the food choice of people in the city and in the surrounding regions. The dishes native to the city are known as Shanghainese cuisine which mainly consists of fresh fish and shrimps. You will find dishes native to other Chinese regions here as well as Western style food.

Stay Safe: Shanghai is safe. You can walk around the streets without any fear of violent crime. However petty crimes like bike theft, pickpocketing, and sexual harassment are common at crowded places. If you are not being careful you might also fall victim to scam revolving around the city.
