About Shanghai

.

Shanghai, China’s biggest and richest city, ignores the laws of physics: looking up, sci-fi-like glass and steel structures defy gravity; looking down, cars, scooters and bicycles swerve to avoid fearless pedestrians.

Over the past 15 years Shanghai’s power consumption has soared by 250%.

Since the Communist Party’s economic reforms in the 1980s, Shanghai, one of China’s special economic zones, has grown with an almost impossible speed. Today, with approximately 23 million inhabitants, the city is the world’s most populous. Adding to the numbers are the hordes of foreign and domestic tourists visiting attractions such as the enormous Old Shanghai Town, the neon-lit shopping legend, Nanjing Road, and the grand colonial neighbourhood, the Bund. Shanghai’s most famous landmark, however, is the futuristic skyline of its new financial district, Pudong; as the main source of the city’s explosive growth, the area stands as a symbol of the Shanghai, and China, of the future.

Shanghai is the home of 166,000 millionaires (in US$).
