The city, whose name literally means "on the sea", is located on the east China coast just to the south of the mouth of the Yangtze river. Bordering on Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces on the west, Shanghai is washed by the East China Sea on the east and Hangzhou Bay on the south. it also occupies a central location along China's coastline. Thanks to its advantageous geographic location, Shanghai is an excellent sea and river port, boasting easy access to the vast hinterland.

What is the best time to visit Shanghai?
Shanghai is good for travel all year round thanks to the different charm in each season. However, April - November is the most recommended time. April, May, September and October are the best of the best when the weather is very comfortable with fewer rainy or hot days. Also, it is the best time to enjoy the spring and autumn foliage during these months.

Always avoid visiting during Chinese national holidays (May 1st to 3rd and October 1st to 7th) when almost all Chinese go out for the holidays. Going to Shanghai a few days ahead of these holidays would be great.
