Shanghai

Pearl of the Orient

China's biggest city and a global financial hub, Shanghai is often described as the showpiece of China and renowned for its Lujiazui skyline. The heart of Shanghai is the Bund, a famed waterfront promenade lined with colonial-era buildings, together with a rich collection of other buildings of various architectural styles. Literally translated, Shanghai means "Upon-the-Sea" with the earliest occurrence of this name dating back to the 11th century Song Dynasty.
