Shanghai has always been the most developed city in mainland China and in much of modern history East Asia itself. In recent history Shanghai has become an attractive city and seems to ignore its communist central government. Shanghai is a fascinating mix of East and West with houses that blend the styles of Chinese houses with European design flair. The city is proud of having the richest collection of Art Deco buildings in the world. As there were so many concessions to Western powers during the turn of the 20th century, ithe city has a cosmopolitan feel. There is everything from classic Parisian style, to Tudor buildings that give an English flair and 1930s buildings reminiscent of Hollywood or Los Angeles.
