Shanghai is called “沪(hu4)” or “申(shen1)” for short in Chinese.
In 1292 Shanghai County was set up in today’s Minhang District. Now Shanghai has developed as an international economic, financial, trade and shipping center.
Because of its rich history, attractive culture and special geographical location, Shanghai boasted many charming scenic spots including landscape, historic sites as well as modern architectures, which attracts a lot of domestic & foreign tourists.
The most famous landmark tower in Shanghai “东方明珠广播电视塔” is called “Shanghai Oriental TV Tower” in English. Its unique shape also looks like oriental pearl in some way.
