Shanghai - China's largest and wealthiest city - is in the midst of a boom of mind-blowing proportions. Change isn't just in the air - it is right in front of your eyes, and clattering in your ears. As China's 21st-century showpiece rises rapidly from the bulldozed rubble of yesteryear, Shanghai's cutting-edge buildings, sky-piercing superstructures, vast bridges and shiny malls have become the city's new symbols. With its new dynamism in art and design, and an explosion of glitzy bars and restaurants, there has never been a better time to visit Asia's hottest city. *Sightseeing in Shanghai *Shanghai hotels *Shanghai restaurants *Shanghai bars *Shanghai shops *Shanghai maps

Author Biography - Time Out Guides Ltd.
Founded in 1968, Time Out has grown from humble beginnings into the leading resource for anyone wanting to know what's happening in the world's greatest cities. Alongside our influential weeklies in London, New York, Chicago and Dubai, we publish more than 20 magazines in cities as varied as Beijing and Beirut; a range of travel books, with City Guides now joined by pocket-sized Shortlist series; and an information-packed website. The company remains proudly independent, still owned by Tony Elliott four decades after he launched Time Out London. Written by local experts, and illustrated with original photography, our books also retain their independence. No business has been featured because it has advertised, and all restaurants and bars are visited and reviewed anonymously.
