BUY is Shanghai's official sport. So this is a great place to practice the art of bargaining, but be strong because the Shanghainese are black belts at it. Okay. Here is the list. You're going to need an ATM.


So much to do, so little time. We know. Hit up these places to get a summarized sense of all the awesomeness this great city has to offer.


Prepare to get fat. Shanghai is exploding with new top-notch restaurants from internationally renowned chefs. Not to mention the flurry of secret local joints serving up Chinese food that will punch your tongue in the taste bud. These are the places we're addicted to.


Whether you're into sipping bubbly and dancing until sunrise, or rocking Chucks and playing foosball to Golden Era hip-hop, Shanghai's party scene is booming and it's got something for everyone. Here are our top picks.

Ever wanted to walk through Chicago after the Great Fire? Watch the Brooklyn Bridge emerge from the depths of the East River? Experience the wild abandon of Mardi Gras during the Depression? Rama is the app for that.

With new tours being added every week, Rama allows you to experience history like never before. Rama turns the iPhone into a digital tour guide that doesn't just lead you to the historical sites and tell you the story behind them, but also presents archival photographs and etchings to show you how those places once actually looked. See for yourself the rocky swamp that became Central Park, the few lonely buildings that remained standing after the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906, or the raucous anarchist demonstrations that once seized Union Square. There's no deeper way to know a place you're visiting, or the place you call home, than seeing its historical evolution with your own eyes.

Currently, Rama is limited to 3G enabled devices only.

Have a tour you'd like to suggest, or write yourself? Go to and let us know!

NOTE: Due to our desire to include high-quality photos and artwork with the tours, we strongly recommend that the first launch of the app occur while your device is connected to a wifi network. This will prevent an overly long load time and/or delayed navigation controls at startup.
