When you think of China, there are many things that come to mind: an
ancient culture full of beauty and history, very large cities with
towering skyscrapers, and incredible food from the street vendors up
to high-end restaurants. Shanghai blends all of that into one
Shanghai, which sits on the Yangtze River, is one of the most populated cities in the world and the most populated city in China. In a country known for its mega cities, Shanghai easily takes the crown.
Often called the Paris of the East, Shanghai is a mix of modern towers that define its skyline, like the Oriental Pearl TV Tower with its iconic circular design, and quaint neighborhoods that make visitors feel like they've been transported to the romantic streets of Europe.
