As the years go by, Shanghai is constantly changing. New malls, restaurants, nightclubs, and theme parks are being constructed while the places that seem obsolete are being forgotten. Shanghai has transformed into the model for 21st century China in less than ten years. Tourists from foreign countries will find Shanghai much different from other major Chinese cities. Shanghai offers an atmosphere that is comprised of both the traditional Chinese culture and the modern Western culture. Tall skyscrapers in the east side of the city overlook the classical architecture and ancient buildings of the west side. This mixture of Chinese and western culture provides tourists with a wide variety of experiences.
