Select Shanghai is a brand-new, full-color guide to this vibrant city, offering authentic experiences, fresh discoveries, and a good dose of local culture, all brought together in an engaging narrative style by a writer who knows the city inside out.

The guide begins with an inspirational In the mood for… section, filled with suggestions covering a wide range of things to do, all grouped by mood – whether you’re looking for a gourmet blow-out, wee-hours entertainment, views from the top of a gigantic skyscraper, or a quintessential Shanghai experience.

The heart of the guide, The Selection, offers a collection of over 100 inspiring ideas for a memorable stay in Shanghai, with plenty of secret gems and off-beat haunts in the mix. The selections are organized by city neighborhood, from the riverside Bund and the shopping hub of Nanjing Road, the old town, Xintiandi’s bars and restaurants, the leafy French Concession, Pudong, and the northern and western districits, complete with clear and detailed mapping, insider tips, and a wealth of practical information.

Hotels is a separate section offering a hand-picked selection of great places to stay in Shanghai, organized by theme, while the Essentials section incorporates a user-friendly run-down of information on getting around Shanghai and other key practical points.
