With a total population of 23 million, Shanghai is the largest city by population in the People’s Republic of China and in the world. It is situated in the Yangtze River Delta in East China and is the world’s busiest container port. The city has been a major shipping and trading town for centuries and grew in importance in the 19th century due to its favourable port location. It also quickly became a very popular tourist destination featuring numerous historical landmarks such as the City God Temple and The Bund (a waterfront area) including a rich collection of buildings and monuments of various architectural styles. The Shanghai Museum of art and history contains the world’s best Chinese historical artefacts. The city has a humid subtropical climate. Even though there may be only one or two days of snow in wintertime, night time temperatures usually drop below freezing due to the winds coming from Siberia. Summers are warm and humid with an average temperature of 30°C in August.
