Introducing Shanghai


Shanghai was once just a sleepy fishing village, but now it's one of the world's biggest cosmopolitan cities with hundreds of skyscrapers, exhibiting elements of the exotic and the modern all at once. The Shanghai Museum is a truly world-class museum and the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center is also just as fascinating. Or perhaps you might prefer to find your inner peace at the Chengxiang Ge Temple or the Jade Buddha Temple. After that, take a stroll around 50 Moganshan Road, and discover the center of the city's contemporary art scene. If you want spectacular views along with your meal, there's a rotating restaurant 267 meters high in the famous Orient Pearl TV Tower Hotel.
