Shanghai ...[detail]

Shanghai, located at the mouth of the mighty Yangtze, is the shiniest gem in modern China's jewel box. Known throughout the world as the "Paris of the Orient", the international city is a thriving metropolis delightfully mixing the West and East, old and new, ancient and modern. Once an outpost for foreign adventurers and businessmen, Shanghai's Bund is famous for the magnificent early 19th century buildings. And you can stroll from the Bund to the bustling Nanjing Road to enjoy the craze for shopping. The pretty Yuyuan Garden and the Jade Buddha temple offer you a glimpse into local history and architecture. And you'll find a more charming Shanghai while gazing at history at the Shanghai Museum or hanging out in Xintiandi and the Cool Docks for the bubbling night life. Try the speedy Maglev Train and you will be impressed by the amazingly fast speed of the train, namely 430 km per hour.
