Art of the Journey

SHANGHAI, CHINA

The Adventures of WG Trunk Co in Shanghai, ChinaDynamic by nature and necessity, Shanghai is proof that the world's most populous city can be livable and loveable. Merchants and tycoons once sought their fortune here and it still has a whiff of opportunism and decadence. You'll still find the glamour of the past along the Art Deco Bund and French Concession's colonial boulevards.
