Shanghai, which means "Above Sea" is a modern metropolis with many skyscrapers filling the landscape.
A visit to China is not complete without visiting Shanghai and trying the famous Xiao Long Baos. These are sometimes referred to as soup dumplings because of the tasty (an extremely hot so be careful!) soup filling. Usually, the baos (or buns) are filled with pork but you can find other variants.
