About the Destination
Nicknamed the “Magic City,” Shanghai is much more than just the economic and cultural hub of China. It's home to a population approximately three times the size of New York City, which means more to do, more to see, and a city skyline shimmering with possibilities. It’s your time to experience firsthand all that this exciting city has to offer.
