1. Geographical Location

Shanghai is located on the east tip of Yangtze River Delta and halfway along China's eastern coastline. It borders the estuary of Yangtze River to the north, Jiangsu and Zhejiang Provinces to the west and Hangzhou Bay to the south. Due to its advantageous geographical location, Shanghai has become a large and prosperous port city.

2. Geographical Features

Shanghai literally means the city by the sea. It is situated right in the middle of China's east coastline, Shanghai is an excellent sea and river port, boasting easy access to the vast hinterland. The city is divided into two parts by the Huangpu River: Puxi (west of the Huangpu River) and Pudong (east of the Huangpu River). Puxi is the older part of the city and hosts the majority of shops, restaurants and museums. Pudong is the modern part, and is recognized for its rather unusual yet extremely impressive high-rises such as the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Shanghai International Financial Center and Jinmao Building.
