History of Shanghai
The city of Shanghai is actually a peninsula between the Yangtze River, Hangzhou Bay and Chang Ming Island and several smaller islands, and the Huangpu River, a tributary of the Yangtze River, divides Shanghai into two parts. It is called Po Kesi and is located in the east of that new part of the city called Pudang. The Huangpu River is about 114 kilometers long and 400 meters wide, with an average depth of 9 meters. It flows through Lake Tai Ho, which is located in the King Po area, and flows east and into the Min Hong region. The Wusang River, also known as the Suzhou River, is one of the most important tributaries of the Hu Angpu River, which joins the Yai Pai River at the site of the Wai Bai Bridge, and finally the Huangpu River north of Shanghai at the mouth of the Pangtse River to the East China Sea. Dian Shan Lake is the largest freshwater lake in Shanghai, with an area of about 63 square kilometers and a depth of about 2 meters, and in the divisions of China, Shanghai is declared one of the four autonomous regions of the country.
Shanghai’s climate is temperate and humid, with four distinct seasons, with relatively cold winters, low rainfall, hot, humid summers, and mild springs and autumns. Sub-zero temperatures are less common, and due to the proximity to the sea, the humidity is relatively high all year round. The island is called Dajin Shan, Xiao Jin Shan and Foshan, which belongs to the Jin Shan region. Dajing Island is 103 meters above sea level and is taller than the other two islands, as well as the three alluvial islands of Chang Ming and Hong Sha in northern Shanghai at the mouth of the Yangtze River. The smaller islands of Chang Xing and Hong Sha are under the jurisdiction of the Baoshan District; Chang Ming is the third largest island in China with an area of about 1,200 square kilometers and is the only city in Shanghai, and the Pudang region is connected to Chang Xing Island by a tunnel and this island is also connected to Chang Ming Island by a bridge.
