Glamorous Shanghai is one of the most exciting cities in the world, where the remnants of a fascinating history collide with the rapidly expanding skyline of a modern economic powerhouse. Explore Shanghai is part of a brand-new series and is the ideal pocket companion when discovering this dynamic and atmospheric city: a full-color guide containing 15 easy-to-follow routes which lead you from the famous waterfront Bund and Old City's neighborhoods to Pudong's glittering skyscrapers, and out to the beautifully landscaped gardens of Suzhou and Hangzhou. Insight's trademark cultural coverage perfectly sets the routes in context, with introductions to Shanghai's cuisine, architecture, and history. The best places to eat and drink are highlighted in each route and in the directory section, which also contains a wealth of practical information, including our selection of hotels to suit all budgets. All routes are plotted on the useful pull-out map, and evocative photography captures the essence of the city.
Insight Guides wherever possible uses local experts who provide insider know-how and share their love and knowledge of the destination.
