Date of event: 3rd - 9th September 2012
Shanghai is China's main financial hub and with so much wealth in the area, it is unsurprising that the city boasts some of the most exclusive restaurants in the world.
Chinese cuisine is very popular around the globe, but the fare served up in the city is like nothing you will have tasted before.
However, if Chinese gastronomy is not your thing, Shanghai has a multitude of eateries that specialise in all types of international food.
One of the best times to explore the finest establishments that the metropolis has to offer is between 3rd and 9th September 2012.
This is when Shanghai Restaurant Week will be held, which gives locals and people taking a luxury holiday in China a chance to sample some of the city's finest food at knock-down prices.
Regardless of whether you prefer simple, Asian, noodle-based dishes or lavish French specialities like foie gras, you will definitely find something that suits your palate.
