This beautiful guide makes the vast enigma of Shanghai accessible to every traveller. Broken into chapters by city areas as well as neighboring towns such as Pudong, Suzhou, Hangzhou and Nanjing, it describes the best sites, both famous and little known, including the French Concession, the Bund, the Shanghai Museum, and old Shanghai; all prefaced by an elaborate introduction to the history and culture. Extensive sidebars discuss architecture, temples, the Taiping Rebellion, and the Grand Canal, and more, while guided tours include a bike ride around Suzhou and a cruise along the Huangpu River. An extensive travel planner details practicalities, including where to find the most gracious hotels and best cheap bites as well as when to look for the festivals.
