boasts the world’s largest population, this will become evident to you as you enjoy this lively and exciting city. Located on the eastern coast of China, Shanghai is the site of modernization that is more pronounced here than in other major Chinese cities. After the sanctioning of trade with other nations, Shanghai quickly rose in status as the busiest container port in the world. Beyond its importance to trade, Shanghai is a leader in world financial markets; considered by the Chinese government as the centerpiece of the ever-expanding Chinese economy.
Shanghai is far more than a mega-city of global importance. When you visit, you will see that the city is a beautiful blend of China’s ancient cultural features and the nation’s progressive aspirations. As in the rest of China, Shanghai respects its ancestral roots, and this allows visitors to enjoy sights and traditions which are millennia-old.
During your Shanghai vacation do not miss the opportunity to take a day trip to Xi’an
, which is the Chinese culture’s place of origin. The area in and around Xi’an developed as a cultural and political center of China around the 11th century BC. However, extensive artifacts from the region point to civilizations in this vicinity around 500,000 years ago. Visitors can enjoy these relics, which are proudly displayed.
A true marvel from Xi’an is the mausoleum holding Emperor Qin Shi Huang
. His reign started in 246 BC. His mausoleum is most famous for the 6,000 terra cotta warrior statues which reside in Huang’s final resting place. Must see landmarks in Shanghai
