- Setting Description:
- Shanghai is currently listed as the largest proper city in the world. With a population of over 23 million people (as of 2010), the city is the commercial and financial hub of China. With a top-of-the-line hi-tech public transportation system and every manner of entertainment at your fingertips, Shanghai is a wonderful place to jump in and really see the massive changes that have hit this country so quickly. Skyscrapers abut temples, while quaint back streets wind hidden beside massive thoroughfares. With the rapid urban to rural migration and the growth of a middle class in China, cars and buses have quickly replaced bicycles and oxen creating a unique mash-up that feels somehow unique to Asia.
