Shanghai borders Jiangsu and Zhejiang Province to the west and is basically sea bound by the East China Sea, hence its name in Chinese is “City on the Sea”. Shanghai remains one of the most flourished cities of China with a developed economy and is also one of the major financial centers of the country.
Shanghai retains China's last vestige of its unusual colonial past. The architecture along the Bund area is a living museum of the colonial history of the 1800s, and visitors find themselves immersed in thoughts of a bygone era.
As China's largest and richest city, Shanghai is China's biggest and most prosperous city that oozes an atmosphere of vitality and rival New York and Paris in terms of modernity. One of the main highlights that will linger in visitors' mind is the Shanghai's gorgeous night scene. As night descends the entire city is lit up by colorful lights.
