24 Hours in Shanghai

Shanghai may be known as China’s second city, but when it comes to fun, fashion, and attitude it’s most definitely in first place. Shanghai’s boom years came at the turn of the 20th century, resulting in incredible art deco architecture that’s still visible all over the city. The legendary Bund waterfront, quaint former French Concession, and futuristic Lujiazui districts all add up to a city of contrasts that’s just bursting with promise.

Kemankeş Caddesi, Istanbul

The seaside suburb of Karaköy is home to the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art. The area’s grand mansions now host cafés, galleries, and groundbreaking Biennial shows.
