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.

Arts on the Bund Editors' Note

Bund 18 Creative Center has a coveted location in the upscale entertainment complex Bund 18, much easier to access than those far-flung galleries in Moganshan Lu.

This multi-purpose art space focuses on contemporary Asian art, showcasing paintings, videos, sculpture and design pieces by both established and up-and-coming artists from China, Korea and Japan. Finish your tour with a coffee or a cocktail in the tastefully designed Lounge 18 next door.
