Overlooking the Huangpu River, Shanghai is home to 16 million people and is one of China’s largest, most cosmopolitan cities. It is a beautiful city mixing traditional Chinese and 21st century architecture. And at night, the city comes alive with lights which line highways, buildings and the Huangpu River. In the newly built rising Pudong, east of the Huangpu River, it has fast become home to multinational companies with operations in China and Asia.
Beijing is located in the North and is China’s capital and its most modern city. This bustling city is home to over 10 million people, while remaining steeped in China’s rich, royal past. China’s two final dynasties (1368-1911) and 26 emperors have bestowed Beijing with the richest dynastic heritage in the world.
