The most populous city in China, Shanghai is aggressively expansive and ever changing. A port city at the mouth of the Yangtze River, Shanghai began as a textiles and fishing town but has grown to become a global influencer of finance, commerce and culture. Historically, the city has been a place for conducting business between the East and West—this dichotomy shows in its hospitality and entertainment options. The utmost in luxury, taste and convenience combines with businesslike efficiency in the Pearl of the Orient.
Travelers will find beautiful waterfront views, a futuristic business district in Pudong, and historical destinations in The Bund—the sprawling metropolis can accommodate the needs of any executive away from home.
