Shanghai underwent a historic transformation on May 27, 1949, when it was liberated by the People's Liberation Army of the Communist Party of China from the Kuomingtang rule. In the past five decades, fundamental changes have taken place in this once semi-feudal and semi-colonial city. Particularly, since China adopted the reform and opening policy in 1978, Shanghai has witnessed marked progresses in its social and economic development. Today, Shanghai is the largest economic and transportation center in China. It also enjoys a reputation as a famed historical city in the country. Now, the city is striving to turn itself into one of the economic, financial, trade and international shipping centers in the world. The Official  website of Shanghai Municipality provides comprehensive information including a visitors guide and virtual tour.
