Located in the northern part of Shanghai city, Baoshan is at the meeting point of the Huangpu River and the Yangtze River. It is the birthplace of Shanghai's port opening, nearly 100 years ago. From the completion of China's first railway to the establishment of BaoSteel, China's largest modern iron-steel enterprise and from the entry of Shanghai University to the holding of Baoshan International Folk Art Festival, Baoshan has developed into an eye-catching district, filled with Chinese history, culture and natural beauty.Find Cruises Sailing to This Port
