Shanghai is located on China’s eastern coast at the end of the Yangtze River. With over 24 million inhabitants, Shanghai is the most populated city in China and the second most populated city in the world. The Port of Shanghai is the busiest container port in the world. An ancient city, Shanghai was inhabited about 6,000 years ago, becoming first a fishing village and a market town. Due largely to its favorable port location, the city grew during the 19th century and expanded rapidly after the 1930s. Two years prior to the start of World War II, though, the three-month-long Battle of Shanghai occurred. In the 1990s economic reforms set in, and today the city holds the Shanghai Stock Exchange and the Shanghai Free-Trade Zone.
The city’s climate is considered humid subtropical, with average highs around 90 degrees Fahrenheit in July and around 46 degrees in January. It has a wide array of architectural styles, perhaps most notably The Bund, a row of early 20th century structures. Shanghai contributes to around 3.7% of China’s GDP, with its largest industries being finance, retail, real estate, IT, machine and automotive manufacturing. Major points of interest are Lujiazui, Huangpu River, Yu Garden, China Art Museum, Qibao, Nanjing Road, Songjiang Square Pagoda, Zhenru Temple, East Nanjing Road, Shanghai Museum, Shanghai Grand Theater, Shanghai Exhibition Center, Oriental Pearl Tower, Shanghai Tower, St. Ignatius Cathedral, to name a few.
