Tell me More About Shanghai
Shanghai is the biggest city by population in the world and also the world’s largest container port. It’s located in the delta of one of the world’s longest rivers, the Yangtze and is considered to be the showpiece of modern China. It has much to interest tourists too including the ever-changing Pudong skyline and the historic landmarks of the old city including the Bund and Yuyuan Gardens. Much of its trading history can be seen along the old wharf of the river where 19th and 20th century warehouses have been converted into entertainment venues.
