The city was one of several opened to foreign trade following the British victory over China in the First Opium War, which allowed the establishment of the Shanghai International Settlement.

The city then flourished as a center of commerce between East and West, and became the undisputed financial hub of the Asia Pacific in the 1930s.Today, Shanghai is a popular tourist destination. It has been described as the showpiece of the booming economy of China.
