For those living in the West, Asia has been the topic of awe and wonderment for a very long time. With cultures which are very different to those found elsewhere, along with a rich history which has been largely uninfluenced by the rest of the world, this continent is a very interesting one. Along with this, though, it’s also incredibly large. This can make it impossible to decided exactly where you’d like to go in this part of the world, with all of the options you have. So, to help you out, this post will be going through one of the most popular Asian cities of all; Shanghai.

  • The City Itself

Being the most populous city in the world, with over 24 million permanent residents, Shanghai is constantly moving and changing. From one year to the next, the city grows by a huge amount, while also improving the areas they already have. This has created a very dynamic feel to Shanghai which isn’t found anywhere else around the globe. The area is thought to have been originally settled in around 4000 BC and has had loads of time to gather interesting landmarks and history for tourists to enjoy.

  • Things To Do

Of course, though, there wouldn’t be much point in going to a place like this if there wasn’t anything for you to do when you get there. Shanghai has a wide variety of attractions and days out to enjoy, and a lot of them are designed for families. Start with the most popular, Disneyland can be found here, providing a great way for families to enjoy their break. Along with this, though, you also have access to numerous temples, monuments, and other religious areas. A trip to Shanghai wouldn’t be complete with some exploration of the old towns, though. Heavy with culture and unique design, buildings in towns like Qibao are like no others in the world. Exploring a place like this will leave most tourists feeling in awe, especially considering the tools, materials, and techniques used by the builders who made them.

  • Places To Stay

As a very well populated city, Shanghai has its fair share of places to stay when you’re on your visit. Along with this, the diversity and economy in the area gives you the chance to find accommodation to match almost any budget. Finding the best Shanghai Hotel to stay in will take some work. To start, you should look at some reviews to give yourself an idea of how other guests enjoyed their stay somewhere. Once you have some good options, you can start to look for articles and blog posts specific to the place. With this sort of work being done, it should be easy to for you to find a hotel which fits both your requirements and your budget.

Shanghai is a truly amazing city. With such a huge population, there’s always something going on, and you never have to be too far from the action. This makes it the perfect location for anyone starting their exploration of Asia. But, it could also be the best option for those looking for an Asian city break.
