The City of Shanghai

My goal with this website is to highlight the beauty and mystery of this amazing city. It is a city of many worlds. The bustling city streets, the stunning harbour, the architecture and modern buildings. It is like no other city in the world and it is my favourite place in the world.

Shanghai is situated at 31°41′ north latitude and 121°29′ east longitude. The city, whose name literally means “on the sea”, is located on the east China coast just to the south of the mouth of the Yangtze river. Bordering on Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces on the west, Shanghai is washed by the East China Sea on the east and Hangzhou Bay on the south. it also occupies a central location along China’s coastline. Thanks to its advantageous geographic location, Shanghai is an excellent sea and river port, boasting easy access to the vast hinterland.
