Cruises from Shanghai
Shanghai, at the mouth of the Yangtze River on the mid-coast of mainland China, is the most populous city in the People's Republic. It is the largest centre of commerce and finance on mainland China, and the show-piece of the world's fastest-growing major economy. It is a major cruise port rivalling Hong Kong and Singapore, and the largest container port in the world. Check your visa requirements.
Go to the Bund to watch ships on the river and marvel at the huge variety of architectural styles on display. Watch the crowds pass by in People’s Square. Shoppers, make a beeline for the Fabric Market where you can have a suit or dress tailor-made at bargain prices.
