In a city that is already home to more hotels than you can shake a stick at, you might question the need for three more.
However a stay at one of the following luxury hotels, all due to open their doors imminently, should put that thought to rest.
Situated in Shanghai's historic neighbourhood of Dazhongli, The Middle House is a Piero Lissoni-designed temple to cool Italian design. Elsewhere The Bulgari is moving into the former Shanghai Chamber of Commerce Building, while over in the bustling Bund district, Ian Schrager is set to open The Shanghai Edition.
Recently released figures show that Shanghai - which scooped the trophies for ‘Asia`s Leading Festival & Event Destination 2017’ and ‘Asia`s Leading Meetings & Conference Destination 2017’ at the prestigious 2017 World Travel Awards - was visited by 8.54 million tourists in 2016, an all time high.
