One part modern glitz and one part ancient mysticism, Shanghai is a city of contrasts and beauty. Towering skyscrapers, luxurious boutiques and some of the world's trendiest restaurants are just a stone's throw away from traditional alleyways lined with hole-in-the-wall restaurants. Although it's a world away from London and New York, Shanghai has always been one of the China's most Westernised cities. It's a great place to dip your toes in the water before embarking on your Chinese adventure.
