Once Shanghai was an insignificant fishing village.
Since last century the traditionelle china is mixed up with modern elements. The historical Yu-Garden or the ancient Jade-Budda temple are located in the middle of modern chinese life. We find old, narrow, dimly streets combined with modern shopping malls like the Nanjing road.

Even if the high amount of habitant and the limited number of space is multipresent.
Shanghai - the different china.
