At the mouth of the Yangtze River as it flows into the South China Sea, Shanghai has been a strategic port since the 1600s. The rich and varied history springing from its significance for international trade can be seen everywhere, from ancient sites such as the City God Temple in the old walled city to the beautifully preserved European architecture of the Bund. Designed just two decades ago to be Shanghai’s gleaming business core, Pudong has fast become a desirable address for luxury condos, shops, museums and attractions, including one of the world’s largest Disney resorts, coming soon. In the 21st Century Tower, Four Seasons offers you a perfect base from which to experience fascinating Shanghai.
Without question, the racing pulse of New China beats fastest in Pudong.
