Shanghai is a fabulous point to begin a boat trip on the Huangpu river or visit the Yu Yuan Market. This is a small city that can be covered on foot and during this one can see the city museums and other interesting sites along the way. Although the city is fairly commercial these days, Shanghai's residents have made a major effort in creating 'green zones' in the city and they've succeeded. There are parks and traditional gardens in the city which make the city fresh and green.
