About Shanghai

In Shanghai, known as the “Paris of the East,” the cultures from East and West are intertwined to create the city’s cosmopolitan style. What was once the ten-mile Shanghai International Settlement, established by the British in conjunction with Americans and French living along the Huangpu River in present-day Puxi, the metropolis currently develops and changes every day. There are historical and cultural architectural wonders lining the Bund and Xintiandi, as well as fashionable attractions in Pudong, such as the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and Shanghai Disneyland Resort. Young creative souls can go to the Former French Concession’s Tianzifang and 1933 Laoyangfang (a former slaughterhouse turned into unique shops and art galleries) to experience what the area was once like centuries ago. The fashionable can walk up and down Nanjing Xi Shopping Street to their hearts’ content. Foodies can go to the Chenghuang (City God) Temple in the Yu Garden complex to try Shanghai delicacies. Shanghai is a multifaceted place no one will regret visiting.

Historical Architecture
Cultural Experiencial Area
Arguably Shanghai's most-famous tourist attraction, the Bund is a waterfront promenade and famous business district in central Shanghai. Historically, the Bund was the city’s main financial and trading center, and was located within the Shanghai International Settlement, an area under nominal British control between 1843 and 1941. The walking areas extend roughly 1.6 km along the west bank of the Huangpu River. Owing to its historic status and zoning restrictions, the Bund contains fantastic examples of classic Shanghai architecture. For this reason, it is a popular spot for photography, offering the best views across the river to Shanghai’s modern skyline in Lujiazui. No visit to Shanghai would be complete without a visit to the Bund.

12,806 Reviews

Each figurine is elaborately made in a London studio with more than 200 years of wax making experience. By incorporating new technologies into the figurines, Madame Tussauds Shanghai is able to offer visitors a more immersive experience. Certainly this particular museum lives up to the reputation Madame Tussauds has garnered throughout the world.

The new town built in the Southern Song Dynasty, has a history of more than 800 years, named after the Xiasha salt field moved south to form a new salt field, hence the name new field , is a salt-producing Jiangnan ancient town due to salt Nowadays, the bustling city has passed away, leaving more than 100 Ming and Qing Dynasties houses of different sizes and more than 20 water bridges. The first time I knew the new town, the film Lust Caution, there is a scene in the new I took a photo of a tea house in the old town of the town. I also went to the new field many years ago to come to the ceremony. Xinchang Ancient Town is quite far from the urban area. Line 16 is sitting at the Xinchang Station. It has to get a car down. It rains when it first goes, and there are almost no tourists. The ancient town is not significant, and it can be finished in less than an hour. After visiting the tea house where you can go to Li An, the first floor tea garden, old-fashioned stairs, carved beams and doors, antique plaques, old wooden chairs, everything seems to return to the Republic of China There are also old telephones, which can still be used It is very suitable for wearing cheongsam, but the photos of friends are not convenient Xinchang Ancient Town Address:... No. 128, Haiquan Street, Xinchang Town, Pudong New Area, Shanghai Transportation: Take Metro Line 11 to Luoshan Road Station, transfer to Metro Line 16 and get off at Xinchang Station After exiting the station, take Bus No. 3, No. 628 and get off at Xinchang Town Bus Station. Walk for a few minutes. That is. You can also take a taxi directly after getting off the subway, start the ride.

The architecture of the 1933 Old Millfun blends the characteristics of the East and the West. In the building you can see the style of an ancient Roman basilica, and the basic structure of the outer circle and inner square also coincides with the traditional concept of “heaven and earth” in Chinese fengshui. The infinite changes between light, shadow, and space present a unique architectural wonder. The 1933 old Millfun is a unique creative park area transformed from a slaughterhouse. It has a unique design and amazing space. It has hosted large-scale commercial activities such as the Ferrari F1 party and the 50th Anniversary of Radar. The Tiny Times was filmed here. When the weather is good, you can also see a lot of new couples shooting wedding photos here. The whole building is simple and unpretentious, and the atmosphere is down to earth. Only by careful observation can you detect the ingenuity of the original designer from the delicate decorative details that seem to be almost inadvertent. Such smooth production processes, sophisticated building structures, and excellent architectural designs actually appeared in Shanghai nearly a hundred years ago as a milestone. Old Millfun is much less crowded than Xintiandi and Tianzifang. The weekend may be more popular. I suggest you choose a sunny off day to visit. No. 29, Shajing Road, Hongkou District Transportation: Metro Line 4, Line 10 to Hailun Road Station (take Exit 2), walk about 10 minutes after exiting the station. Open hours: Mon through Sun 09:00 - 22:00

Shanghai
Shanghai has, in a mere 25 years, emerged as global financial center and trendsetting modern metropolis. Glittering skyscrapers dot the skyline in Lujiazui, just across the Huangpu River from the stately architecture along the Bund. Chic cafes and restaurants intermingle with street vendors and classic gardens. Known as the “Paris of the East,” Shanghai garnered a reputation for noir and intrigue in the 1920s and ‘30s. The image of Art Deco buildings, gangsters with tommy guns, and cabaret never faded. As China’s undisputed financial capital, Shanghai is a city on the cutting edge. Money talks and glamor abounds; yet the past is never far away.
