The overview of Shanghai

A rising star in the eastern world

Shanghai, a super city situated in the eastern world, is the show pony of China's booming economy.

It's the country's financial and commercial center, the largest and busiest container port, and the most populous city with the most comprehensive and advanced infrastructure. It is China's gateway to the rest of the world. Shanghai is historically a city of early adopters, a place full of people eager to welcome new ideas, try new things. This evident in the preponderance of international companies -- everything from automobile manufacturers to coffee shops. You see it in the restaurants they eat in and the clothes that they wear. Or even in the radically eclectic skyline designed largely by international architecture firms. Suffice it to say, the world is once again coming to Shanghai, except this time it's on Shanghai's terms.
