Shanghai - This bustling metropolis is being groomed to become the new economic and trading hub of China, and indeed all of Asia! Modern Shanghai owes much of its cityscape and unique global status to the decadent prosperity arising from the occupation of the city by colonial powers in the past, which is most evident in the famous Bund area. Our tour will give you a greater understanding of the city’s past, present and future.
