In 2010, Shanghai overtook Singapore to become the world’s largest port. This nonstop working port, just outside the city on the East China Sea, is still growing and expanding. The bus will take us over the Big East Sea Bridge, which was the Shanghai government’s “No.1 Program” and is among the longest cross-sea bridges in the world. We will enjoy a stunning view of the port’s cranes and ships from Yangshan Island, where we will hike the beautiful mountains and enjoy our “bring-your-own” picnic lunches. Our guide Lisa Zhu will explain the difficulties Shanghai faced while building this port, the significance of the port to China’s economy, and how it impacts today’s competitive world. Bring your families and visitors; it’s a great way to escape the city, embrace the fresh air, and learn about this important aspect of trade and commerce!
