All about Shanghai tourism

Shanghai is truly an impressive city: it boasts a population of over 23 million and every year, more and more travelers choose to visit Shanghai and discover this rising global reference in finance, fashion, and cuisine. The Port of Shanghai is the busiest in the world and, as evidenced by the dazzling pavilions of the 2010 Shanghai Expo, the city is eager to show the world its growing prestige. So let’s find out what Shanghai tourism is all about.

There are plenty of transportation options for your Shanghai trip. Most visitors arrive via Shanghai Pudong International Airport or Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, although there are trains arriving at Shanghai Railway Station from all corners of the country. If you’re arriving at Pudong airport, use the Maglev high-speed train to travel to Shanghai and start your visit.

Begin your Shanghai holiday with a stroll through the markets and gardens of Old Shanghai, making sure to stop for some hot noodles or soup dumplings, a traditional favorite in Shanghai. Next, try a visit to the Shanghai French Concession, an interesting piece of Europe in the Chinese capital or explore the site of the Shanghai Ghetto in the Hongkou neighborhood and discover one of the city’s lesser-known stories from World War II. You can’t finish your holiday in Shanghai without exploring the world-class collection of Chinese art and artifacts at the Shanghai Museum.

To top off your trip to Shanghai, pay a visit to the Bund, the glittering coastal area that’s an emblem of China’s economic growth. Run the neon-it gauntlet of shops and people on Nanjing Road or visit the shops, restaurants, and clubs of the glitzy Xintiandi neighborhood. Or, have a day of family fun at the Shanghai Zoo, Shanghai Disney Resort, or Happy Valley, a traditional theme park full or rides and attractions. Have a look below at tips and recommendations from real travelers and begin to discover the history and modernity of Shanghai.
