If you're a Houston local looking to see what life is like overseas, Shanghai is a world-class metropolis that has prospered since the 1930s. Shanghai is a distinctively Chinese city mingled with European influences; from its architecture to its atmosphere, it merges Art Deco and Tudor stylings with traditional flair. You can save yourself some driving by taking the METROrail to George Bush Intercontinental airport (IAH) and fly from Houston to Shanghai in 19 hours.
Shanghai's worldliness is best exhibited in its French Concession district, often referred to as the Paris of the East . For a more exotic feel, the Jingan District captures the atmosphere one would expect from China and contains Nanjing Road, the city's biggest concentration of major shops, along with Jing'an Temple, which was built nearly 2,000 years ago. Pudong is a younger district that s home to many of Shanghai's most impressive skyscrapers.
From Pudong International Airport (PVG), you'll be able to access Metro Line 2 to travel deeper into the city. With a loaded Shanghai Jiaotong Card, you'll be able to pay for buses, metros and taxis without worrying about individual tickets. Shanghai is a good city for pedestrians, but following the examples of its residents, you could consider renting a scooter to get around. Shanghai has a hot and humid climate with temperatures in the 90s during the summer and 50s in the winter.
