The City

The summer school will be held in Shanghai, China. The city of Shanghai, the largest and most prosperous city in China, is the economic, cultural and transportation center of the country.

Shanghai is a city with a long cultural history. By the end of 2006, there were 19 cultural and historical sites under state protection and 165 under city protection. A number of ancient sites and gardens dating back to the Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties have been well preserved.

Shanghai lies on the west coast of the Pacific, and is in the middle of China's east coastline and at the mouth of the Yangtze River. With a history of more than 700 years, Shanghai is a fantastic city to be walked, wandered, explored and discovered in your own time and in your own style.

From May 1, 2010, World Expo 2010 Shanghai China will open to welcome visitors from all over the world. It is an occasion for China to bring the world at home, and for the world to feel at home in China. Under the motto "Better City, Better Life," Shanghai hopes to build a powerful and lasting example of sustainable and harmonious urban living.
