Shanghai dubbed "Pearl of the Orient"
due to its brightly illuminated skyscrapers and the futuristic
Oriental Pearl TV Tower, which at 468 meters, stands as the world's
third tallest TV tower. It symbolizes Shanghai and rated as one of
the top 10 views of the City. Historically, Shanghai was a paradise
and dream city for adventurers, tycoons, businessman, knights-errant
and beauties. Many stories and screen plays both sad and joyful were
played out here. Shanghai is the most comprehensive industrial and
commercial center in China ranking top in population. It is the top
tourist spot in China, attracting travellers from both home and
abroad by its commercial activity rather than its scenic beauty.
