Shanghai Tours

Shanghai, the metropolis, is called “Mo Du (魔都)” by Chinese people. Mo means ambition and Du means metropolis.

Many people are familiar with the spectacular riverside of the Bund and ambitious skyline of Pudong. But they often overlook the city’s soft side. If Shanghai is like an elegant lady, water towns are her tenderness. They preserve well an ancient atmosphere which is unique to China. Ordinary people still live in the water towns.
