Trip by Skyscanner's Shanghai City Guide offers the best personalized guide to Shanghai. Once a bastion of Western influence in the 19th and 20th century Orient, Shanghai has remained on the cutting edge of Chinese politics, commerce and culture. And, now, tourism. The Bund, Shanghai’s riverside walk (and textbook example of good urban planning) along old colonial Art Deco and Romanesque buildings, offers spectacular views of the ultramodern Shanghai skyline across the river. The French Concession, an upscale tourist area known for its Western architecture, is chock full of both international stores and unique Shanghai retailers. A highlight to this vertical city is a trip to the Oriental Pearl Tower or the World Financial Center, the latter of which has the world's tallest observation deck at 1,555 feet above ground. The popular Yu Garden attraction is an imperial monument and vibrant street vendor district melded into one. The Shanghai Museum is also a big drawing card, with collections of pottery, Chinese painting and bronze work from prehistoric times to the Qing Dynasty spread across four floors. At restaurants look for the signature Shanghainese dish, xiaolongbao, steamed pork dumplings. Nightlife in Shanghai is not matched in China, with many nightclubs and bars found on the Bund or in Xintiandi. In Shanghai, hotels range from historical colonial buildings to 100-story Western-owned skyscrapers.
