About Shanghai

In Shanghai, known as the “Paris of the East,” the cultures from East and West are intertwined to create the city’s cosmopolitan style. What was once the ten-mile Shanghai International Settlement, established by the British in conjunction with Americans and French living along the Huangpu River in present-day Puxi, the metropolis currently develops and changes every day. There are historical and cultural architectural wonders lining the Bund and Xintiandi, as well as fashionable attractions in Pudong, such as the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and Shanghai Disneyland Resort. Young creative souls can go to the Former French Concession’s Tianzifang and 1933 Laoyangfang (a former slaughterhouse turned into unique shops and art galleries) to experience what the area was once like centuries ago. The fashionable can walk up and down Nanjing Xi Shopping Street to their hearts’ content. Foodies can go to the Chenghuang (City God) Temple in the Yu Garden complex to try Shanghai delicacies. Shanghai is a multifaceted place no one will regret visiting.

Food in Shanghai is what really matters to most whether they are locals or tourists. That is because the Shanghai Restaurant and Shanghai-style food draw inspiration from the great-eight of diverse tasting regional cuisines in China. The Haipai and Benbang cuisines both are an integral part of Shanghai’s “Hu” cuisine followed by an authentic Shanghai Restaurant. The rise of Shanghai and especially its foods have been mercurial, to say the least, and it came into its own only in the 1800s. We will take you on a guided tour of the lowdown on Shanghai’s cuisine, the best typical-Shanghai dishes to try, where to find the best Shanghai Chinese Restaurant, the various popular cuisines and where they are served, and even lead you to the best dating restaurants to try out. Are you hungry enough? The advice is for free!
