The Communist Party and Europeans fleeing World War II - both have shaped what Shanghai is today. The name means "City on the Sea," and the culturally diverse population makes it a great stop for Western travelers. As a booming financial metropolis, Shanghai combines colonial beauty with high-powered business lunches, a pulsating nightlife and cultural icons like the Jade Buddha Temple. Easy to navigate, the city is divided into two sections, and travelers will marvel at its mixture of neon-lit skyscrapers and French villas, as well as its strong-willed and cosmopolitan people. Located on the Yangtze River Delta, Shanghai was a small fishing village until the mid-1800's. In August 1842, after the first Opium War, it was opened as a port city to foreign trade. Influences, mostly English, American and French, caused the city to metamorphose into the cultural center it is today. Shanghai and its myriad of stimulating delights make for a great Chinese destination.
