is China's second-largest one in terms of population
and is one of the four centrally administered
cities in the country, the other three being Beijing,
Tianjin, and Chongqing. It is also one of China's
mcat important industrial and cultural centres.
To most foreigners, Shanghai used to be the adventurers'
paradise. Most of the European-style quarters
of the Old International Settlement and the French
Concession areas can still be seen.
Shanghai is situated at 31.14 degrees
north latitude and 121.29 degrees east longitude.
The city belongs to sub-tropical marine season
climate. There are four distinct seasons, with
abundant rainfall. Average annual rainfall is
about 1,200 millimetres. The annual average temperature
is 15.712, the hottest being in August with an
average temperature of about 2812; the coldest
is in January, the average temperature being 312.
Intermittent drizzles in the rainy season range
from mid-June to the first ten-day period of July
lasting approximately 20 days. Hot summer follows
the rainy season.
Shanghai is a modern and fast paced
city, rich in history and culture and with a wealth
of areas and sites just waiting to be explored.
One of the nicest aspects of Shanghai is that
the crowds here are much more manageable than
in a city like Beijing. This is largely because
there are no great ancient sites which people
flock too. Rather, this is a city to be walked,
wandered, explored and discovered in your own
time and, in your own style.
