Shanghai: As the largest city in China, Shanghai serves as the most influential economic, financial, international trade, and cultural center in East China. No other city in the country is more vibrant, fascinating or has such a unique colonial history. Shanghai, literally 'above the sea', is a port city on the Huangpu River. Originally a fishing and textiles town, the city gained its identity after it was opened to foreign powers by the 1842 Treaty of Nanking. Now Shanghai is a renowned international metropolis drawing increasingly more business and tourism attention worldwide. In addition to its modernization, Shanghai offers the perfect blend of cultures, with traditional cuisine and attractions to the unique skyline of newly developed skyscrapers to preserved historical buildings. Western customs and Chinese traditions intertwined make the city unforgettable.
