Port Description

Shanghai, China

The city that was once synonymous with urban vice no longer thrums with the underworld energy of opium dens, gangster haunts, and gambling joints but this thriving commercial hub still has plenty of tourist treasures. Start with dizzying views from the Oriental Pearl Television Tower or an offshore peek at the grand buildings of the Bund on a Huangpu River Tour. From lacquered opera masks to ancient pottery, centuries of Chinese art and culture are on display at the showpiece Shanghai Museum, noted as much for its architecture as for its loft-like galleries.
