Shanghai

About Shanghai

No other city in China can match the glamour and unique history of Shanghai. A walk down the famous Bund looking back towards the city in one direction reminds us all of a bygone era whereas the other side with spectacular skyscrapers of Pudong looks to the future. With all its glorious architecture, Shanghai now enjoys a reputation as the most cosmopolitan first-tier city and a centre for international businesses – hard to find a major corporate that doesn’t have a presence in Shanghai. It is truly the economic epicentre of China. But let’s not forget it’s also a city full of charm, tradition and modernity, from the old French concession, Chinese gardens, and ancient alleyways to world class museums and shopping malls.
