Shanghai

Synopsis

Shanghai has been called "the world's most happening city" and IP Global CEO and "Buying Asia" host Tim Murphy certainly finds out why during the series' first visit to Mainland China. Home to 20 million people, this is a place where old sections of the city are being transformed into wealthy artist enclaves while suburban homes are starting to resemble well to do American suburbs in terms of size.

It's a city of contrasts as Murphy interviews architects who are preserving Shanghai's historic facades one moment before riding the 400 kph Maglev train the next. Murphy also checks in with leading real estate developers, economists and lawyers to find out how to buy on the Mainland, what to look for in the city and whether the sky is the limit in this ever growing city. Combine that with a mesmerizing skyline and insights into local culture and this promises to be one of "Buying Asia's" most revealing episodes.
