China & Shanghai

One of the world’s oldest cultures and at the forefront of today’s economy, China is a study in sometimes shocking contrasts. China has experienced almost inconceivable economic growth and change over the last three decades, which is reflected in its largest city, Shanghai.

In Shanghai, towering new skyscrapers in Pudong face the Art Deco European buildings on the Bund. While this is the most famous view in the city, there is so much more to explore. Shanghai is incredibly modern and busy, with 24 million people efficiently moving through the city on the metro system. At the same time it can be relaxed and calm on the tree-lined streets of the French concession, where students can spend the afternoon studying in a coffeeshop and watching the world go by. Shanghai is a window onto today’s China and one of the most exciting destinations in the world.
