Shanghai is so vast and varied that the only sensible plan is to select a few destinations, historic sites and cultural icons and experience the uniqueness of each one. Unlike Beijing, a royal city for centuries, Shanghai’s history is not dramatic. Until the mid-19th century it was just a fishing village. Then it expanded into a trade center, colonized by the British. Change was rapid. The French came next and it was not long before Shanghai became an international settlement. By 1895, the city was parceled up into settlements, all autonomous and immune from Chinese law. Enter China’s first fully fledged Special Economic Zone.
