Journey to the east with China Tea Leaves travel guides as your companion and visit Shanghai - the Paris of the Orient and bustling symbol of modern China.
Shanghai, the new China. There has never been such a place. The tomorrowland of a present still becoming, the future of a past that barely even existed, an extraordinary flash in the pan. By some accounts the largest city in the world, Shanghai will overwhelm you with its sparkle, size, and stunning growth. But it also seems familiar in its international style, leafy residential neighborhoods, and an open worldliness. Paris of the Orient, Chicago on the sea. Take a look and see what you find reflected here.
