One of the China’s most massive and vibrant cities, Shanghai is heading places the rest of China can only dream about. In a land five millennia old, Shanghai feels like it was born yesterday. There is no better place to catch the pace and contradiction of modern China than Shanghai. Bullet fast Maglev, skyrocketing buildings, European streetscapes, jazz clubs are just a few branches from the huge tree that is Shanghai. Shanghai can hardly match the epic history of Beijing or Xian, yet Shanghai has a unique story to tell and no other Chinese city does foreign concession streetscapes in quite the same way.
