The Best Areas to Stay in Shanghai for Any Budget

Wondering which neighbourhood is best for you? Read on ...

China is a vast nation with countless magnificent and historical cities, but none evoke the the same romanticization and reverence accorded to Shanghai. As the predominant portal for Western trade and influence in the 19th century, Shanghai rose to become China's cosmopolitan standard-bearer and still enjoys that position today. Modern Shanghai contains fascinating remnants of the era of Western colonialism and is the city that has incorporated the most aspects of Western culture down to the fashions one sees on the streets and metro.

Shanghai is one of four Chinese municipalities that is considered to be its own province. The municipality consists of the entire end of a triangular peninsula on the East China Sea, bordered by the mouth of the Yangtze River to the North and Hangzhou bay to the south. However, virtually everything of interest to most travelers is contained within a small area close to the banks of the Huangpu River, a wide tributary that ultimately empties into the Yangtze Estuary close to the sea.

The Bund (Waitan)

The Bund (Waitan)

The quintessential historical area of Shanghai is the Bund, known to locals as Waitan. This area on the Western bank of the Huangpu contains most of the remaining colonial architecture in Shanghai and attracts thousands of people on a nightly basis for views of the sunset and the Pudong skyline across the river. The Bund is also a convenient place to embark on cruises on the Huangpu River.

Xintiandi

Xintiandi

Slightly further afield from the center is Xintiandi, a modern development that is largely pedestrianized. Xintiandi is known for international restaurants and upscale malls, and is a popular area for young, wealthy Shanghainese to socialize in the evenings. Many of Xintiandi's buildings are constructed in the historic Shikumen style, making the neighborhood one of the city's most atmospheric outside of Old Shanghai.
