    About Destinations
    Shanghai Municipal
    Shanghai is the largest city in China in terms of population and one of the largest urban areas in the world, with over 20 million people in its extended metropolitan area. Located on China's central eastern coast at the mouth of the Yangtze River, the city is administered as a municipality with province-level status. Originally a fishing and textile’s town, Shanghai grew to importance in the 19th century due to its favorable port location and as one of the cities opened to foreign trade by the 1842 Treaty of Nanking. The city flourished as a center of commerce between east and west, and became a multinational hub of finance and business by the 1930s.
    However, Shanghai's prosperity ended after the 1949 Communist taken over and the subsequent cessation of foreign investment. Economic reforms in 1990 have resulted in intense development and financing, and in 2005 Shanghai became the world's largest port.
    The city is an emerging tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks such as the Bund and Xin Tian Di, its modern and ever-expanding Pu Dong skyline including the Oriental Pearl Tower, and its new reputation as a center of culture and design. Today, Shanghai is mainland China's center for commerce and finance, and has been described as the "showpiece" of the world's fastest-growing economy.
    WuXi City,
    Wuxi is a famous city with a long history, a sparkling pearl of the Taihu Lake, situated in the southern part of Jiangsu Province and in the middle of the Shanghai-Nanjing Railway.
