Pocket Guide: Shanghai

Pocket Guide to Shanghai

Overlooking the Huangpu River a short distance inland from the East China Sea, skyscrapers tower over the classic colonial architecture of Shanghai’s Bund on the opposite bank. An economic development zone, the ever-growing Pudong skyline is the focal point of contemporary Shanghai, one of the most highly populated city in the world.

The enduring economic powerhouse of East Asia, cosmopolitan Shanghai is a mix of the glamorous and the gilded, the frenzied and the futuristic, and is a world away from other major cities in China. By every measure, Shanghai is a destination making rampant progress – financially, industrially, architecturally, artistically – while its history and status as a major trading port and former colony leaves an imprint on every aspect of city life.

Getting to Grips with Shanghai

In the Yangtze River Delta on the central China coast, Shanghai sits roughly halfway between Beijing and Guangzhou. Bisected by the Huangpu River, the fast-growing downtown Shanghai forms part of a peninsula, aided in its expansion by natural deposition from the Yangtze River and land reclamation projects like Nanhui New City in Pudon.

Pioneering Pudong and the historic Bund area across the water is where the majority of business travellers and tourists focus their attention. Here, you’ll find the banks and investment companies of the city’s booming financial sector. On the miles of tree-lined boulevards, you can mooch around the luxury boutiques, designer brands and department stores. Trendy cocktail bars and restaurants deliver a mix of Shanghainese and globally influenced cuisine, reflecting the city’s status as a modern international city.

Beyond all the glitz, hints of a more evocative Shanghai still remain. Head to the old city to explore hole-in-the-wall eateries, cosy tea shops and traditional lane houses bedecked with laundry. Or visit the Ming private Yuyuan Garden and the Taoist City God Temple for a brief respite from the pace of Shanghai life.

West of the Bund, the former French Concession is one of the most popular districts to explore, particularly if you want to splash out. Stuffed with European colonial-era buildings, art galleries, pavement cafes, historic mansions and upscale hotels, the area is a must-visit destination for photographers and walking-group tours. It’s also Shanghai’s premier nightlife hotspot, full of speakeasy-style cocktail bars and dance clubs.
