About Shanghai

If glittering cityscapes crawling with people, weird cuisines and department stores excite and delight you, then Shanghai belongs on your bucket list. It's a little bit notorious, a little bit naughty and every bit beautiful, despite its smoggy first impressions. The Bund paints a picture of colonial Shanghai as traders still gather to ply their wares and gossip; the Shanghai Museum is everything you've ever wanted from a grandiose building, packed with history and intrigue; and the Jing'an Temple is a must. Spend your time wisely, Shanghai is the capital of too much to do.
