Shanghai, on China’s central coast, is the country’s biggest city and a global financial hub. Its heart is the Bund, a famed waterfront promenade lined with colonial-era buildings. Across the Huangpu River rises the Pudong district’s futuristic skyline, including 632m Shanghai Tower and the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, with distinctive pink spheres.


You can get the best photos at night. This is when the waterfront comes alive with all of its lights.

You can expect expect accommodations, food and activities throughout the country to be affordable at just about every turn. There are high-budget options for anyone that wants to experience true Chinese luxury, but with soup dumplings from street vendors for $2, tours of the Jing’an and Jade Buddha temples for under $10 and accommodations on Airbnb for less than $20 a night, you won’t have to splurge to have a good time.

Move fast, a deal like this won’t last long.
