what is the largest port on the world





bemapiu
The Port of Shanghai, located in the vicinity of Shanghai, comprises a deep-sea port and a river port. In 2006, with a total of 537 million tons of cargo transported, it became the world's busiest port by cargo tonnage for the first time.

The Port of Shanghai faces the East China Sea to the east, and Hangzhou Bay to the south. It includes the heads of the Yangtze River, Huangpu River (which enters the Yangtze River), and Qiantang River.

Im pretty sure the port of Shanghai should still be the biggest port on Earth.

Yeah I watched a good documentary on this(I'm a huge docu-holic)
I think it contributes to the 'made in China' labels on everything.
A lot of money runs through there, probably a great target for a terrorist attack in a war if you ask me.

The photos you posted are of Chongqing, an inland port in the PRC. The largest port in the world, to my knowledge, is the oceanic Chinese port of Shanghai which has something like 17 million population.

At the moment it's:

1. Shanghai (China)
2. Hongkong (China)
3. Rotterdam (Netherlands)


Singapore seems not to keep up with the great growth of these three the last years, but is a solid third.
