Gap Experience programmes in China, Shanghai

Shanghai, which has been a commercial port for thousands of years,enjoys all the advantages of its position on the delta of the Yang-Tse-Kiang River. It is the country's main international trading port. Merchandise is received from around the world and is transported into the heart of China via the majestic Yang-Tse-Kiang, the longest river in Asia, which stretches over 6,500km. This megalopolis is one of the most spread-out and heavily populated cities in the world.

The city is separated in two by one of the tributaries of the “river of rivers”. On the left bank you will find Puxi, where the main attractions and monuments of the city are located, whereas the other bank, Pudong, is home to the business district. By day and by night, people stroll along the “Bund”, the most famous promenade of the city with its elegant colonial buildings dating from the beginning of the century. Nankin Street, the city's main street, measuring over 5km long, is also the main shopping street. The crowds of pedestrians and the superimposed neon signs are enough to make your head spin, but certainly less than the new telecommunications tower as you continue along the street, which is 460m high and fluorescent at night to indicate which direction to take.
