SHANGHAI

   

Pudong Shanghai
Whore of the East, Paris of China and Queen of the Orient; city of quick riches, ill-gotten gains and fortunes lost on the tumble of dice; the domain of adventurers, swindlers, gamblers, drug runners, idle rich, dandies, tycoons, missionaries, gangsters and backstreet pimps; the city that plots revolutions and dances as the revolution shoots its way into town - Shanghai was a dark memory during the long years of forgetting that the Communists visited upon their new China.
   

International Conference hall

Shanghai put away its dancing shoes in 1949. The masses began shuffling to a different tune - the dour strains of Marxist-Leninism and the wail of the factory siren; and all through these years of oblivion, the architects of this social experiment firmly wedged one foot against the door on Shanghai's past. Today Shanghai has reawakened and is busy snapping the dust off its cummerbund. The sun rises every day to a

Orientation

Shanghai lies in central-eastern China, exposed to the East China Sea. The municipality covers a substantial area, but the city proper is a more modest size. Within Shanghai municipality is the island of Chongming. It's part of the Yangzi River delta and is worth a footnote because it's the second largest island in China (or third if you recognise China's claim to Taiwan).

Broadly, central Shanghai is divided into two areas: Pudong (east of the Huangpu River) and Puxi (west of the Huangpu River). For visitors, the attractions of Shanghai are in Puxi. Street names are given in Pinyin, which makes navigating easy, and many of the streets are named after cities and provinces.
