24 Hours in Shanghai

by staff

If you loved the cutting-edge architecture unveiled for Beijing's Olympic Games, just wait until you see what's going down (or, indeed, up) as part of Shanghai's World Expo. The 56th world fair is to be the biggest in the event's history (the first was held in London in 1851). Seventy million eager-beaver participants are expected to devour the latest in innovation at each nation's architect-designed pavilion within the sprawling two-square-mile site on the Huangpu River. Highlights include the U.K.'s 66-foot-high hedgehoglike "Seed Cathedral" and Japan's 80-foot-high organically shaped eco spaceship (pictured). Beijing's Bird's Nest suddenly seems so 2008.

Planning to be in the city for the Expo (May through October 2010)? Check out the following itinerary for 24 hours in Shanghai.
