Shanghai - Pudong Holidays Overview

 

The city of Shanghai is the largest city in China and one of the largest in the world. It is situated at the mouth of the Yangtze River on eastern central coast of China. The city has a province level status though administered as a municipality.
 
Shanghai begun as a fishing community before growing into a market town in the 10th century. It became a city for the first time during the Yuan dynasty in the 13th century. In the 16th century, a city wall to protect the town from raids. At the height of the Qing dynasty it became a crucial sea port Yangtze Delta region.
 
The city was temporarily captured by British forces early in the 19th century during the first Opium war. The treaty of Nanking ended the war and opened up the city to foreign trade. This accelerated the growth of Shanghai into a business and financial hub by the 1930s. Unfortunately, the policies of the communist government that took over in 1949 somewhat stunted the growth of Shanghai. Fortunately, the Beijing government realized the error of hardline economic controls and begun economic reforms in 1984. By 1990, the changes had started to be felt and by the 21st century, Shanghai had reclaimed its place as a major world financial centre.
 
Shanghai has a population of about 18 million people it one of the world’s most populated cities. The main languages in use are the vernacular Shanghainese which is a dialect of Wu Chinese. Chinese Mandarin is the lingua Franca while standard Mandarin is the official language.
 
The climate in Shanghai is humid and there are four distinct seasons. Winter can get very cold due to cold wind that emanates from Siberia. Typhoons are common place and have caused substantial damage in recent years.
