9789622176058: Shanghai

The cosmopolitan "Paris of the East" during the Twenties and Thirties, and before that a beacon for Western entrepreneurs, Shanghai continues to fascinate visitors with its melange of European architecture and its reputation for style and sophistication. Today, amid great change, Shanghai's famed energy is more palpable then ever as it evolves into a modern financial and cultural center. This guide is an excellent companion for anyone visiting the city.

Review:

A good introduction to the city. -- Travel & Leisure

These handsome, well-edited books from a Hong Kong-based publisher cover places few other guidebooks go.... The writers are particularly well-chosen....Odyssey fans tend to be adventurous travelers with a literary bent. If you're lucky enough to find an Odyssey Guide to where you're going, grab it. -- National Geographic Traveler, February 2000
