In Shanghai, the new and the old, the bustling and the serene come together to create the perfect paradox. An exotic, awe-inducing destination, China’s largest city has something for everyone. Catch a fast ride on the Shanghai Maglev, soak up floral aromas at the Yùyuán Gardens, or slip back in time at the City God Temple in Old Town. Steeped in history, Shanghai has been the cultural and economic hub of East Asia for centuries. Each city street is its own page in the rich and varied story of Shanghai. Discover the birthplace of cinema, explore ancient artifacts at the Museum of Art, or take a tour of some of the world’s finest Art Deco architecture. A tourist’s dream getaway, Shanghainese will connect you with the area’s 14 million speakers. The hardest decision you’ll make is whether to order Shanghai maoxie (Shanghai hairy crab) or Congshao crucian carp at dinner.
