Shanghai is the world’s largest city. Officially some 24 million people live here. Unofficially, its closer to 30 million, due to the large influx of lower class people trying to find a better quality of life. Shanghai is a world class city, with some of the tallest buildings in the world, Maga shopping centers at every corner, and efficient public transport system. It is quite westernized (perhaps too much), and it is certainly a first world city, with clean streets and famed waterfront. It is now only on the outskirts of the city that you see the traditional two-story brick buildings which once represented the old Shanghai. The old city however is unfortunately fast disappearing. Shanghai may not represent China at all, but its an amazing modern metropolis which puts others to shame, showing the world what modern China might be.
