Vibrant and modern. Shanghai has changed dramatically over the last 10 years. A must visit for anyone planning to visit China. The Bund, the French Concession and the Yuyuan Garden are three of my favorite sights.

Shanghai is a cosmopolitan city. Whereas Beijing has the culture and imperial history, Shanghai has a more western and progressive vibe. Thus, it makes the city a really exciting place to visit. The restaurants are amazing and the bars and clubs are really cool and worth visiting.

Spending a few weeks in Shanghai was the most transformative travel experience I have ever experienced. This Paris of the East has changed dramatically in the past ten years, so much so that some may deem it unrecognizable. It's China’s most populous city, boasting an impressive 23 million people, in a dynamic blend of an older architecture with a modern skyline. To clearly appreciate Shanghai’s unbelievable boom, start no further than The Bund. Considered to be the face of Shanghai, it’s where the city gets divided by the Huangpu River in two districts: Puxi (West of the Huangpu, the older side) and Pudong (East of the Huangpu, the modern side). Must-see attractions are the French Concession, Tian Zi Fang and Yuyuan Gardens. To get around the city, call The Magic Number to either speak to a representative in English or have someone speak Mandarin to the locals.

Many people think that Shanghai is just a modern city, but that is a far cry from the truth. Although it is very modern Shanghai also has many sights related to Chinese history and culture. In addition it is very easy to navigate, many people speak English and it is a small metropolis - most sights are easy to reach with metro or a cheap taxi ride. It is also the best place for seeing the transformation that is happening in China today.

Shanghai is my home town, I left there since 2007. Still missing lots of fun places and good restaurants... The subway in rush hour is chaos, and you always find people around you no matter when. Still love it...

Ahh I was only in Shanghai for 3 days. What a shame. I want to go back. I love how modern this place looks. And I can stare at the Pudong Skyline forever. It's so beautiful. The nightlife here is amazing. People stay up till sunrise. I didn't get a chance to go shopping here, so I'm definitely going back one day!

Of course the shanghainese dumplings were amazing here! Also there's the Counterfeit Mall with not only counterfeit goods (no thanks for me), but also great souvenirs like tea cups, chop sticks and pashminas. Just go to the science museum about 20 mins outside of downtown and ask folks to point you to the counterfeit mall!
