So many books and films have promoted this “legend.” And, like any huge city, Shanghai does harbour its secrets, its mysteries and its “hard to explains.” But, what you see when you fully open your eyes you’ll discover that Shanghai is actually a vibrant and cosmopolitan city that offers a wide range of unique and unusual experiences.
