Shanghai, also called “Hu” for short in Chinese, is the biggest commercial and financial center in China, and also a very important international port city in the Western Pacific Ocean area. With its convenient transportation and communication, especially as the host of World Expo, it is attracting increasing amounts of attention from all corners of the world. Tourists can see the glowing lights of the Pudong District for miles and Nanjing Road is one of the busiest streets over the world. Streets have become an urban tourist attraction that holds the historical and cultural legacies of the city. Don’t let the yachts and skyscrapers fool you, though Shanghai also contains beautiful, ancient temples and traditional street-side shops. It’s no wonder why Shanghai has been called the Queen City of the Orient. In this chapter, you may get further information of both the traditional scenes and the modern sites in Shanghai.
