Enjoy the intrigue and glamour of China’s largest city. With roots dating back some 5,000 years, Shanghai is a city of extraordinary depth and contrast. Highly visible are the new steel and glass towers of modern Shanghai and, in contrast, the original buildings of the old international settlements from the 1920s and 30s.
Watch this city of more than 17 million people as it writes new history, adding to its centuries-old traditions. Asia’s born-again international boomtown, Shanghai is at the forefront of China’s drive for modernization.
