Visit Shanghai

24.3 million

Shanghai, China is one of the most vibrant cities in the world. It is a global financial hub and has a population of more than 25 million people. The city has some of the most spectacular architecture and cultural attractions in Asia, making it an ideal destination for travelers. Popular tourist destinations include nighttime views from The Bund, a colonial-era waterfront area; Yu Garden, an ancient classical Chinese garden; and Xintiandi, an urban area filled with unique shops and restaurants.

Shanghai also has a rich history full of colorful stories. During World War II many refugees fled to Shanghai due to its open port policy - at the time Shanghai had no immigration restrictions or citizenship requirements so many Jews escaping persecution found refuge here. This resulted in what was known as "Little Vienna" - Jewish bakeries, cafes and synagogues flourished during this time period despite difficult circumstances elsewhere in Europe. Today this legacy can still be seen in some sections of Shanghai including Hongkou district which was once heavily populated by Jewish culture.
