Shanghai Maps and Orientation

(Shanghai, China)

Shanghai is a stunning city, the biggest is China and the eighth biggest of the whole planet. Located alongside the Yangtze River Delta and in the very centre of the country's eastern coast, Shanghai's skyline is dominated by striking high-rise buildings and skyscrapers, of which the breathtaking Oriental Pearl TV Tower is the tallest and most recognisable. The Jin Mao Tower, the Shimao International Plaza and the Plaza 66 Tower are also rather impressive structures.

Within the city of Shanghai are more than 200 different towns and a huge number of districts and neighbourhoods, many of which have something interesting to offer. The financial district is of particular importance and lies on the eastern side of the Huangpu River.

This trading port is an important gateway to both the Huangpu River and the Yangtze River, being heavily used by many nearby provinces, such as Jiangsu and Zhejiang.
