All the beautiful women that are smart are very unique

I was chatting with a Shanghai girl in Australia and she’s will come back to Shanghai. I think life has many choices but also many responsibilities.  Family is still number one, she will come back to Shanghai to stay with her parents.  I think it’s more duty than anything else.  Life has many chances but it seems for a Chinese girl family is still number one.  I think a girl choses a husband, she is also thinking of the parents.  Will the husband take care of her parents, will he he go and visit the parents.  I think the was is very different, the kids are very independent so they go out and do what they have to do.  They really yhink less of the parents and do what ever they want.  I think it’s hard for the girl, when it’s her turn to marry, she will do the right thing.  Find a husbad that can take care of the family not only her, but also her parents.  It’s just because things are suppose to be this way.  I do not think she will narry on a whim or out of love but more for what is the right thing to do.  In China, especially in Shanghai the child policy has made the kids very unique.  They grow up but always have to look back.  I’m hoping on winning against the odds.  Money doesn’t buy love but buys happiness in different ways.

Map of China

 

   Introduction    China Top of Page
Background:

For centuries China stood as a leading civilization, outpacing the rest
of the world in the arts and sciences, but in the 19th and early 20th
centuries, the country was beset by civil unrest, major famines,
military defeats, and foreign occupation. After World War II, the
Communists under MAO Zedong established an autocratic socialist system
that, while ensuring China’s sovereignty, imposed strict controls over
everyday life and cost the lives of tens of millions of people. After
1978, his successor DENG Xiaoping and other leaders focused on
market-oriented economic development and by 2000 output had quadrupled.
For much of the population, living standards have improved dramatically
and the room for personal choice has expanded, yet political controls
remain tight.

Shanghai information, Facts about Shanghai

Overview

Shanghai and  its neighboring areas, travel in ChinaShanghai,
Hu for short, is situated on the estuary of Yangtze River of China.
It is the largest industrial city in China. Covering an area of
5,800 square kilometers (2,239 square miles), Shanghai has a population
of 18.7 million people, including 2 million floating population.

Originally, Shanghai was a seaside fishing village
and in time its gradual development led to it being granted County
status on August 19th, 1291 during the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368).
Hence this day became the anniversary of the founding of Shanghai.
Today’s Shanghai is a multi-cultural metropolis with both modern
and traditional Chinese features. Bubbling Shanghai shows off every
aspect of her unique glamour.

Serving as the largest base of Chinese industrial
technology, the important seaport and China’s largest commercial
and financial center, shanghai draws the attention of the whole
world.

The Bund along the Huangpu River and the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Shanghai.Modern
Shanghai has three key areas of interest to the visitor. These comprise
Sightseeing, Business and Shopping centered upon People’s Square
and along the Huangpu River. The city’s Cultural Center with its
public activities and community facilities and finally the main
Entertainment and Holiday Tourism area located at Mt. Sheshan, Chongming
Island, Dingshan Lake and Shenshuigang Area.

Known as “the Oriental Paris”, Shanghai
is a shopper’s paradise. One of the musts for tourists is Nanjing
Road. Huaihai Road intrigues those with modern and fashionable tastes,
while Sichuan North Road meets the demands of ordinary folk. In
addition, Xujiahui Shopping Center, Yuyuan Shopping City, Jiali
Sleepless City are thriving and popular destinations for those who
are seeking to buy something special as a memento of their visit.

Bustling  Nanjing Road, Shanghai.A
wide variety of cuisines can be found in the City and today Shanghai
offers a plethora of culinary delights focusing on the traditions
of Beijing, Yangzhou, Sichuan, Guangzhou as well as its own local
dishes. Shanghai’s restaurants are among the finest to be found
in China and they welcome diners from anywhere at any time.

Shanghai continues to grow and prosper meeting the aspirations
of the 21st century while retaining its proud traditions of service
and hospitality. The Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Jinmao Mansion and
Pudong International Airport are the modern symbols of an international
metropolis while the Shanghai Museum, Shanghai Grand Theatre and
Shanghai City Planning Exhibition Center are evidence of the extensive
and deep passion of a great city that extends a warm welcome to
friends from all over the world.

Shanghai
Travel Reviews

Although the city is rapidly developing
into one of the most marvelous modern metropolitans,
Shanghai would not be unique without blending the new
with the old. It is a place where glass-coated skyscrapers
serve as a back drop for an ancient Buddhist temple,
where tea houses neighbor with the newest Starbuck’s,
and juicy steamed dumplings belong in the same meal
as a McDonald’s hamburger. Also no Burger King is in Shanghai. No matter how rapid the pace
of development, the city’s history still resurfaces
in the most unexpected places.—

China’s culinary diversity is reflected
in its many regional cuisines. On a recent visit to
Shanghai I was able to sample the specialties of a city
booming with economic development yet still steeped
in delectable gastronomic history and tradition.–
