About Shanghai

Temples, towering skyscrapers, neon-lit malls and unbridled energy flow through this massive metropolis on the Huangpu River. Get a Shanghai guide from tourHQ to make the most of your trip.

The largest city by population in the world, Shanghai is not the place for those afraid of crowds. Popular with tourists due to its fascinating world famous landmarks, Shanghai will not disappoint those who enjoy the hustle and bustle of the big city.

The largest city in the largest country in the world, you would do well to study your Shanghai Tourist Guide to make the most of your time in the city. Popular with locals and tourists alike, The Bund, located on the East bank of the Huangpu River, is a sparkling cluster of grand buildings, on the riverside promenade. Walk along as it flows into Nanjing Road, the ‘most commercial street in China’ with over a million people buying and selling each day. Museumgoers will enjoy the China Art Museum and Shanghai Museum while those seeking spiritual tranquillity will find it at Yuyuan Gardens and the City of God Temple.

Like many cities in the East, Shanghai’s history can be seen in the architecture of its streets. The fabric of its ancient past has been irrevocably altered by colonialism and globalisation into the diverse metropolis we see today. As it is often said, ‘Shanghai’s present will be China’s tomorrow.’
