Shanghai, China

Why go: Dynamic, fast-paced and exhilarating, Shanghai is a city very much focused on the future. In fascinating contrast to its skyscrapers and designer bars, the city’s rich past lives on in Buddhist monasteries, old lane houses and crowded noodle bars.

Where to eat: At chef Tony Lu’s lovely, low-key FU 1088, you’ll find some of the best Shanghainese fine dining in town.
