As the rising city in Asia, Shanghai never sleeps. Wake up, get a bite of some steaming Xiaolongbao right around the corner from the former French Concession; afternoon, grab a coffee after lunch at a French-style rooftop kitchen; midnight, dance 'til dawn with a breathtaking view of the neon-lighted high-rises on the Bund. Just like a bit of Ying and Yang, Shanghai balances the east and the west and has developed a unique blended culture. Feeling a bit of wanderlust?
