This is Shanghai

Kung Hei Fat Choy…or should we say, Happy Chinese New Year! Today marks the start of the Year of the Horse in the Chinese Lunar Calendar and to celebrate we have selected a video of the week dedicated to this beguiling country. This short film showcases the vibrant city of Shanghai, a buzzing metropolis of gleaming sky scrapers, neon lights, concrete flyovers and bustling streets. As one of the fastest growing economic cities in the world, Shanghai is a brilliant place to see firsthand the development of a modern urban landscape – but this video is a close second. Despite this rapid development, architectural remnants of Shanghai’s colonial past can still be seen in its bustling streets, where ancient traditions intertwine with western customs.
