As China’s industrial and financial capital, Shanghai is a melting pot of global and oriental influences. For the best shopping in Shanghai, head to Bund. For nightlife, the Pudong district, east of the Huangpu River, houses the major bars and clubs. If you are in the mood for a quick, authentic meal, the snack stalls down the side streets have plenty of options. Good restaurants, however, can be found in the Xintiandi district. Shanghai has enough to keep you occupied for an extended stay. Explore the antique market in Dongtai Lu, wander the halls of the Shanghai Museum, discover the original HSBC Bank from 1865 and pay a visit to the Confucian Temple. China is a vast country with plenty to see outside of its cities.
