Shanghai is a modernized metropolis with traditional Chinese characteristics. Located in the middle of the long coastal line of China and the estuary of Yangtze River, it is one of the four municipalities directly under the central government. For hundreds of years, Shanghai is always the commercial center and fortune gathering place of China, as well as the closest link with the world and the famous “Shopping Paradise” just second to Hong Kong in China.

Shanghai is also an emerging tourist destination thanks to its profound cultural heritage and numerous historical sites, e.g. the landmark of Shanghai- the Bund and Xintiandi. The Oriental Pearl Tower and Jinmao Tower located at Pudong demonstrate the city’s prosperity and construct the most spectacular skyline around the world with other buildings like Shanghai World Financial Center. Moreover, the Shanghai Center to be completed in 2014 will definitely add to the magnificence of the “Oriental Paris”.
