Shanghai, on the central coast of China, is the largest city in the country and a global financial hub. Its center is the Bund, a famous coastal promenade with buildings from the colonial era. On the other side of the Huangpu River stands the futuristic profile of the Pudong district, with the Shanghai Tower 632 m high and the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, with its characteristic pink spheres. The extensive Yu Garden has traditional pavilions, towers and ponds.
