As China's biggest city, Shanghai is one of the jewels of Asia. The two sides of the Huangpu River present stark contrasts. The Western side of the river, Puxi, shows Shanghai’s historic past with the French Concession, the Bund, and the many ancient gardens and temples that still attract thousands of tourists each year. The Eastern side across the water, Pudong, shows the modern high rises; the Pearl Oriental Tower, the Jing Mao Building and the Shanghai Tower. The futuristic skyline is an iconic image that represents the growth that China has been experiencing during the last decade.
