Straddling the Yangtze River Delta on the eastern coast of China, Shanghai is situated almost equidistantly from the nation’s iconic capital, Beijing, and the economic powerhouse of Hong Kong. Covering an area of 6,340 square kilometres (2,448 square miles), Shanghai is home to over 24 million inhabitants from the East China Sea to the provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang in the west. The winding Huangpu River flows through downtown Shanghai with the city’s economic heartland lying east of the river in Pudong and its historical and cultural core in Puxi to the west. The city is served conveniently by two international airports, Shanghai Hongqiao and Shanghai Pudong, 13 kilometres (8 miles) and 60 kilometres (37 miles) from the city centre respectively.
