A Special Day
Christmas and Santa Claus have made its way East as Shanghai celebrates the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christmas, known as a Christian holiday, is also known as a festival of giving. People all over the city celebrate the Christmas spirit by giving gifts to one another. Also, since Christmas has become so commercialized, everybody celebrates it with great vigor and enthusiasm. Take part in the Christmas Eve dinner parties at hotels and restaurants.

- Venue Description:
While Beijing is the political capital of China, Shanghai is what people romanticize while dreaming of the mysterious Far East. Once a sleepy fishing village, it is now a pulsating cosmopolitan destination thanks to British colonialism which grasped it's strategic location as a port town. Present day Shanghai pleases its visitors with colonial remnants, shopping districts, river side gardens, nightlife, art, music and much more. If you are brave enough, do sample some strange cuisine like duck neck, sheep's heart or pig brains in spicy broth!
