Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: City on the Sea
Shanghai -- literally "City on the Sea" -- has in the 1990s become the center of China's economic
resurgence.  Shanghai's allure begins with its glamorous past of sepia-lit halls, opium dens and French
villas. A gathering of cultures, it was once a place where rich taipans walked the same streets as
gamblers, prostitutes, and beggars, and Europeans fleeing the holocaust lived alongside Chinese
intellectuals and revolutionaries.
Today's Shanghai is a metropolis of 13 million.  It is the New York City of China. Nowhere else in
the country can you feel the same pulse, dynamism, and fervor.  Unlike sprawling Beijing, Shanghai is
a true city laid out on a grid. It is one of the world's most crowded urban areas.
Foreign influence has made today's Shanghai a Chinese consumer heaven. Domestic stores rub
shoulders with the boutiques of Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, and Ralph Lauren. Shanghainese women
are among the most fashionable in China, having abandoned Mao's blue uniforms.  Among the youth, mobile
phones and pagers are de rigueur, essential accessories for their newfound stylish image.

In Shanghai, it's all about image, and the owner of the highest-priced goods goes home the winner.
It is not surprising then that the Shanghainese enjoy one of the highest living standards
in China.  Higher salaries, more goods, and more and more venues for entertainment, nightlife, and
culture complement the lives of China's most cosmopolitan and open people.
