Synopsis:

Shanghai, the most notorious of Chinese cities, was once called the Paris of the East. A more apt name today would be Powerhouse of Asia. Commerce has always defined this port city, from the mid-1800s when it was still a small fishing village, through the 1920s when it was a hub of vice and indulgence, to today as it emerges arguably the most prominent business center on the continent. A true contemporary metropolis, Shanghai offers bright lights, gleaming skyscrapers, and hot new bars and restaurants layered over a past as wild and complex as any Pleasure Island.

• Profiles of Shanghai's major neighborhoods, such as Pudong, the Bund, and the French Concession, with detailed maps and indexes to the sights, restaurants, and hotels in each district

• Top Experiences: the best of Shanghai in one place. Size up what to do quickly with snapshot descriptions of the must-see sights and on-target recommendations for a night on the town, a morning stroll, an afternoon shopping spree, and more.

• New illustrated features on the effects of a booming economy, the cuisines of China, shopping for antiques, and much more.

• Chinese translations: easy-to-read boxes will have the English, Chinese, and pinyin names for every sight, restaurant, hotel, shop, and nightlife venue.

• More than 100 tip boxes and essays entice readers with fun anecdotes and keep them clued in with easy-to-spot essential info.

• 8-page color insert
