Cheap Tickets to Shanghai

Shanghai is a bustling commercial capital of China. The port of Shanghai is among the busiest in the world because of its strategic location in central coastal China. The Huang Pu River divides the city into two parts. The city on the western side of the river, also known as Puxi, is larger. Here older districts of Shanghai can be found. The city on the eastern side of the river, also called Pudong, is modern. You will see a number of skyscrapers and various new developments taking place in this part. Shanghai, when viewed from the Puxi side, on the Bund, will simply amaze you. You will get an idea of how Shanghai will look like in the future. This part of the city is home to Shanghai’s tallest building, the Jin Mao Tower, and the Oriental Pearl Tower. However, if you view Puxi from Pudong, you will get a glimpse into the past of Shanghai.
