Beijing is the capital of China. It has come to be known as one of the most popular tourist destination in the world. Beijing people clearly love the history of their ancient city. They are people of the past. It is the political capital of China, so there is a stronger sense of nationalism, tied especially to historical artifacts like the Imperial Palace and Tiananmen Square.

Shanghai was a small fishing village until the Opium Wars ended, which forced the Chinese to open up some port cities to foreign trade.  Therefore, the city modernized earlier than Beijing, and still leads in its cosmopolitan airs; it feels like a much more Westernized city. Shanghai`s people love modernity and are proud of their rapid ascent from fishing village to a global modern city in a century or less. They are proud of their achievements but even more, they are proud of their future. Shanghai`s people live in the future and dream of bigger and better things for themselves and their city. They adapt and embrace the change. No surprise that Shanghai has been a hotbed of radical ideas, fashions, and money for China. Shanghai does not strike me as a Chinese city; it's a foreign city in China.
