Shanghai, a WONDERFUL city
Shanghai, widely regarded as the citadel of China's modern economy, also serves as one of the nation's most important cultural, commercial, financial, industrial and communications centers.

Originally a fishing town, Shanghai is currently one of China's most important cities. The city often reflects the pop culture, intellectual advances and political systems of the Republic. In the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, Shanghai was the third largest financial center in the world, ranking after New York City and London, and the largest commercial city in the Far East.

The city is divided into two parts by the Huangpu River: Puxi (west of the Huangpu River) and Pudong (east of the Huangpu River). Puxi is the older part of the city and hosts the majority of shops, restaurants and museums. Pudong is the modern part, and is recognized for its rather unusual yet extremely impressive high-rises such as Shanghai's tallest buildings, the Shanghai International Financial Center, Jinmao Building and the Oriental Pearl TV Tower.
Due to constant inflow of people from other parts of the country, the size of population in Shanghai keeps growing. Before Shanghai was liberated in 1949, it only had a population of 5.2 million. By the end of 2007, Shanghai's population of residents with permanent residence registration had grown to 13.7886 million, representing 1% of China 's total.

different styles with great attraction.

They were repaired by the Shanghai government from 1956–1961, opened to the public in 1961, and declared a national monument in 1982.
