Shanghai is not the capital of China, but it is the largest city in China. At the mouth of the Yangtze River, this city is home to ultra-modern districts and historic jewels. Along the Huangpu stands the futuristic district of Pudong, the business district, a major international financial centre, with its Shanghai tower (632 m high) and the famous Pearl of the East television tower with pink spheres, the World Financial Center nearly 500 m high and 100 floors, etc. On the other side is the Bund, a famous walk to discover the buildings of the colonial era. The vast Yuyuan garden will plunge you into the time of the Ming and Qing with its traditional pavilions, bridges and ponds. Shanghai, the city of finance and industry, a busy and polluted city, alternates atmospheres from one district to another, day or night. Leaving the glittering skyscrapers and the crowd in a hurry, we discover the Temple of the Jade Buddha under the scent of incense, the Old Chinese City and the thousand-year-old temple of Longhua. Visit the four floors of the Museum with its rich collections of furniture, jade objects, calligraphy, sculptures, ceramics and Chinese seals. Essential: the rue de Nankin, a 5 km long artery in the historic centre that attracts people. To the east, it is the pedestrian street with the city's four department stores, a temple of consumption with two million visitors on weekends. To the west, it is the chic artery, a temple of chic with its luxury boutiques totalling 1,200 major brands!
