Shanghai is the largest city by population in the People's Republic of China. It is also a global city, with influence in commerce, culture, finance, media, fashion, technology, and transport. Since the economic reforms of the 90's it has become a major financial centre and the busiest container port in the world. The destination offers a really interesting tour option for student groups and may be combined as a two centre tour with Beijing.

Shanghai is a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, City God Temple and Yuyuan Garden, as well as the extensive and growing Lujiazui skyline. It offers a fascinating insight in to the differences and contrasts between old and new China. The Maglev train which provides a super fast hi tech airport transfer is a symbol of the new confidence in the city.
