6) Shanghai: the shopping paradise!
This famous Chinese city has more commercial goods than anywhere else in the country. It also has one of the top shopping centres in the whole of Asia. If you are a ‘shopaholic’ you will love to explore the markets of Nanjing Road. This is Shanghai’s busiest and most popular shopping site, selling various goods for a reasonable price. However, if you prefer a more luxurious shopping spree head to the west end of Nanjing Road.
7) Venues; there one day, gone the next!
One of the main constants in Shanghai is the fast pace of change. When visiting Shanghai you will realise how businesses are relocating, closing or opening all the time. Before your trip to the city, ensure you are up to date with the destinations that are open. Checking on the Internet and asking your hotel for information can reduce your disappointment.
The people of Shanghai love sweet tastes and it is therefore commonly used in their dishes. It is said that you find more sugar in a Shanghai dish than other meals from any other part of China. So if like the Shanghainese you have a sweet tooth travel to the city and try their delicious food.
9) Money, money, money!
In 1914, Shanghai had 200 banks that dealt with 80% of direct foreign investment into China. Since then business is still booming, even more than ever before.
This train links the airport to the city centre and has been the world’s fastest passenger train since 2004. It can reach a maximum cruising speed of 431 kilometres per hour.
