China's Cosmopolitan Cities & Shopping

Marvel At China's Metropolises

East meets West in extraordinary new ways in China's fast-growing cities, all bustling, international metropolises with skyscrapers and state-of-the-art technology.

Explore the old colonial buildings of The Bund on Shanghai's waterfront, or look down on the city from the 100th floor of the World Financial Centre.

In Beijing, explore centuries-old hutong alleyways and soak up the history and sheer size of Tianamen Square. For spine-tingling panoramas, look back at Hong Kong's iconic skyline from Victoria Peak

When it comes to shopping, China is the place to be. From jade and pearls to suit-stitching tailors and the biggest selection of fake brand goods you will find anywhere, must-visit markets include Beijing's sprawling Panjiayuan Jiuhuo Schichang and Hong Kong's Temple Street Night market, where fortune tellers and performers complement steaming food stalls. On the high street, giant department stores sell everything from catwalk fashion to high-tech electronics.
