Shanghai, Pearl of the East

Reviving its golden days in the 1930s, Shanghai is grabbing the world’s attention again as the most dynamic metropolis in China. From the jaw-dropping skyscrapers in Lujiazui to numerous cosy cafés in the French Concession, this is where East meets West, traditional meets modern, and the grassroots coexists with the luxurious in harmony. Whether you’re a backpacker or a jetsetter, you can always find what suits you best.
