Flight from General Santos (GES) to Shanghai (PVG)

Flight from General Santos (GES) to Shanghai (PVG)

Shanghai was a big part of the modern world's meteoric rise in China. It is a very important global financial centre, as well as the world's busiest container port. The skyline of the Pudong area is a testimony to Shanghai's prominence as the financial centre of China, with some of the world's highest buildings such as the Shanghai Tower, the Shanghai World Financial Hub, and the Jin Mao Tower. Many of the tourist attractions in the city, such as the Lunghua Temple, the City God Temple, and the Bund, go back centuries. But what makes Shanghai a true cultural fusion is the fact that it has evolved so far beyond that and still has its roots. You will find ancient temples and along with those you will find spectacular modern buildings.
