Shanghai, China

Shanghai is located on the east coast of China. Visitors to the area will notice Western-style architecture mingling with modern skyscrapers and traditional Chinese buildings. British businessmen came to the area after the Opium War in 1842. Settlers from France, America and Japan soon followed, each putting their unique imprint on the land, and those influences can still be seen today.

Enjoying Shanghai

The Shanghai Pudong International Airport is located east of the city and lies directly on the bay. The Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport is located west of the city and lies completely on the mainland. Those arriving at the Pudong airport can take one of 10 bus lines to the city center for ¥2 to ¥30. Travelers landing at the Hongqiao airport can take a shuttle bus to the downtown area for ¥2 to ¥30, but most fares are around ¥2 to ¥7.

Shanghai sees four distinct seasons. Spring is pleasant and warm, summer tends to be wet and hot, fall sees cooler temperatures, and winters can be cold and cloudy. In July and August, temperatures can reach the mid-90s, and highs in January and February reach the mid-40s. With mild temperatures and less rain, May is a good time to visit.

Visitors to the area should head to the Bund. This waterfront area is known for panoramic views, sculptures and historic buildings. Located in People's Square, the Shanghai Museum is divided into 11 galleries. Visitors can view more than 500 pieces from various dynasties, tricolored glazed pottery and Chinese paintings and calligraphy.
