Shanghai is a haven for shoppers - Nanjing Road is the number-one shopping street in all of China - but perhaps even more importantly, Shanghai represents the future of China. Across the mighty Huangpu River, which served as old Shanghai's eastern border, Pudong, serving as the face of new Shanghai, now boasts the tallest hotel in the world, Asia's largest shopping mall, China's largest stock exchange, and one of the highest observation decks in Asia - the Oriental Pearl TV Tower.
Shanghai is also reestablishing itself as a leading trendsetter for fashion, design, culture, and the arts. New theaters and cultural centers attract top performers from China and abroad, while designers of every stripe are taking advantage of the mix of the East, West, past, and future by blazing their own unique styles.
Maybe it can't match the epic history of Beijing or Xi'an's grander sights, Shanghai is the hotspot of modern China; a cosmopolitan city buzzing with the concept of "lifestyle revolution", showcased in the architectural temples of art, fine dining and contemporary urban living on the Bund.
