Publisher Comments:

City Guide Shanghai is a full-color guidebook to China’s most modern city. Our Best of Shanghai recommendations will help you make the most of your time, selecting the city’s must-see sights, such as the elegant Former French Concession, the Shanghai Museum with its collection of prized Chinese artifacts, and peaceful Lu Xun Park. In-depth essays explore the Shanghai’s past, its booming economy, vibrant arts scene and unique architecture. Other topics include where to eat hairy crabs, where to see Shanghai rock and where to shop for unique designer goods. A detailed Places section covers all the major sites, such as the Bund with its beautiful buildings recalling the city’s colonial past, the upmarket Xintiandi district with its bars and restaurants, and the narrow lanes of the Old City, which offer a glimpse of a vanishing way of life. We give readers comprehensive, opinionated hotel and restaurant recommendations for each area of the city, plus shopping and nightlife listings and a wealth of practical information to guide you around the city. Over 600 specially commissioned color photographs bring the many facets of Shanghai, and its surroundings, to life. Navigation is made easy with 17 detailed color maps linked to the text by numbered dots, plus a 16-page indexed street atlas.
