Shanghai: The Pearl of the Orient

The most populated municipal city in the world, with a population of over 24 million, Shanghai is an amazing metropolis that has been compared with other great cities but stands on its own as the economic powerhouse of Asia, a centre of culture and the arts, a shopper's and gourmet's paradise, and a traveller's delight. From the leafy tree-lined French concession to the vibrant, neon-lit skyline of Lujiazui, the city is full of enticing sights.

Shanghai is the world's most populous city with an estimated 24 million people living there in 2017. It is the largest shipping container port served by the man-made Huangpu river which is a tributary of the Yangtze. Shanghai is the economic showpiece of mainland China and this is evidenced from its spectacular Lujiazui skyline.
