Shanghai

'''Shanghai''' is the largest Chinese (China) city by population Located in the Yangtze River Delta in East China, Shanghai sits on the south edge of the mouth of the Yangtze in the middle portion of the Chinese coast. The municipality borders the provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang to the north, south and west, and is bounded to the east by the East China Sea. url http: www.shanghai.gov.cn shanghai node23919 node24059 node24061 userobject22ai36489.html title Geographic Location work Basic Facts publisher Shanghai Municipal Government accessdate 14 September 2011

For centuries a major administrative, shipping, and trading town, Shanghai grew in importance in the 19th century due to European recognition of its favorable port (Port of Shanghai) location and economic potential. The city was one of five (Treaty ports) opened to foreign trade following the British victory over China in the First Opium War while the subsequent 1842 Treaty of Nanking and 1844 Treaty of Whampoa allowed the establishment of the Shanghai International Settlement and the French Concession (Shanghai French Concession). The city then flourished as a center of commerce between east and west, and became the undisputed financial hub of the Asia Pacific in the 1930s. title Shanghai: Global financial center?

In the 1990s, the economic reforms (Economic reform in the People's Republic of China) introduced by Deng Xiaoping resulted in an intense re-development of the city, aiding the return of finance and foreign investment to the city.

Shanghai is a popular tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as The Bund, City God Temple (City God Temple of Shanghai) and Yu Garden as well as the extensive Lujiazui skyline and major museums including the Shanghai Museum and the China Art Museum.
