Shanghai — If you want a dynamic introduction to modern China, then Shanghai is the place. The city’s reputation as “Paris of the East” declined after World War II, but its resurgence is again attracting legions of “foreign adventurers.” Here you can visit a 1000-year-old temple, a bleeding-edge art gallery, and the birthplace of the Chinese Communist Party – all on the same day.

Why Go

For old meets new and east meets west, the burgeoning architectural marvels, and the exotic street life.
