This paper aims to describe Digital City Shanghai (DCSH), which was designed to be an integrated information & service environment for everyday life. Section 1 provides a background of Shanghai. Section 2 discusses the motivation and guidelines of DCSH: service-oriented, intelligent, participant-encouraged, and government-guided & commercialized. Section 3 gives a rough skeleton of DCSH, which includes virtual government, virtual bank, virtual enterprises, virtual markets, digital library, digital hospital, digital community, and virtual school. The reality of DCSH is presented in section 4 based on the description of the current backbone of "InfoPort Shanghai." A comparison between DCSH and other digital cities is given in section 5. Section 6 is a detailed description of Shanghai Tourist Information & Services, which is a pilot project of DCSH.
