This Is Shanghai

Rating
This Illustrated book about Shanghai's weird sights, streets and culture is the perfect accompaniment to a travel guide. Alexander Barrett's This is Shanghai is a first-hand account of expat life in China's (and the world's) largest city. Like a guidebook, it helps newcomers and visitors discover the city, but instead of making quickly outdated lists of restaurants and museums, Alexander Barrett takes you on a tour of the essential facts of existence in Shanghai.
