Shanghai is one of most progressive mega cities in the world. It is under the direct supervision of the Central Government. Located in the Yangtze River Delta, the city is the showpiece of China’s booming economy, and is the center of finance, business, shipping and trading.
Shanghai has a unique traditional heritage mixed with a modern vibe. Because of the influx of French and British nationals in the 19th century, Shanghai is one of the most westernized cities in China. Many people in the city can speak Mandarin and English.
