Shanghai must be one of the fastest growing modern cities in the world. On visits in 2002 and 2012, China, the country, and its industrious people quickly became a favorite attraction. As told by a Chinese guide, the most popular tourist attraction in Shanghai is China Town. The downtown area is spectacular with its marvelous buildings, and the pictures along the river after dark are equally amazing. Central attractions here are the space ship building, shown here by day and night, and the sky scraper that looks like a giant bottle opener. The map by Google offers a perspective of the central city area circled by the river, a source of constant commerce both up and down stream.
