Reisgids Odyssey Beijing & Shanghai - China's Hottest Cities (2013) China

Kleurrijke reisgids voor Beijng en Shanghai met 263 kleurenfoto's en 18 kaartjes en plattegronden.

China's drive into the 21st century has been fuelled by the relationship and competition between Beijing, considered by some observers to be the classic capital in China, and Shanghai, the nation's economic growth engine. Despite claims that Shanghai was little more than a fishing village before the arrival of foreigners in the 1840s, it was in fact a thriving commercial port free from the shackles of central government. That all changed in 1949 when Beijing exerted control, funnelling its riches to the capital, leaving Shanghai in a state of limbo. Today the city is restoring its status as Asia's leading centre of trade, finance and commerce, this time with Beijing's blessing. As Beijing takes on the cloak of an international metropolis, its majesty, well reflected in its cultural gems - the Forbidden City, The Temple of Heaven and the Ming Tombs - remains unfettered by the country's economic development. 

Observers and travellers alike will delight in seeing each city play out its colourful and dramatic role with the blessings of heaven and earth. Travellers to China must at some point visit both these dynamic cities. This vibrant new edition of Beijing & Shanghai brings readers up-to-date on what's hot and what's cool in China's twin cities.

Peter Hibbard MBE is a Shanghai-based British writer. His research, focusing on Shanghai's urban development and the history of travel and tourism in China, began over 25 years ago. He is the author of numerous publications, including The Bund Shanghai: China Faces West, and is President of the Royal Asiatic Society China in Shanghai.

Paul Mooney, an American freelance journalist, has 31 years of experience studying and working in Asia. Paul moved to Beijing in 1994, beginning a 16-year stint of reporting from around the country for leading publications, such as Newsweek, Asiaweek, The Far Eastern Economic Review and the South China Morning Post. He lives in Beijing.
