Day day itinerary:
The local guide will pick you up at your hotel lobby at about 9 am. Tour begins after greetings. Morning tour Yu Yuan (and Old Town)Yuyuan Garden is a famous classical garden which was finished in 1577 by a government officer of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) named Pan Yunduan.With its shaded alcoves, glittering pools churning with carp, pavilions, pines sprouting wistfully from rockeries, whispering bamboo, jasmine clumps, stony recesses and roving bands of Japanese tourists, the Yuyuan Gardens are one of Shanghai's top-notch sights. With over 1000 visitors daily, securing an early morning visit is advisable. The adjacent bazaar is great for a browse, if you can ignore the surrounding sales roar.
Shanghai Museum The Shanghai Museum is known as the best museum in China and is well worth a visit. It is located in the downtown area on Renmin Da Dao. First established in 1952, it was re-built in 1996 in the form of an old Chinese cooking pot, making the outside just as impressive as the inside. The museum houses an amazing 120,000 Chinese artefacts. Not quite as impressive at the national museums in Beijing or Taipei, but still impressive.
the Bund :The city is divided in half by the Huangpu River. The eastern bank, Pudong, is China's future while the western bank, Puxi, is China's past. You'll find exotic flower and animal markets, men pushing carts and ancient shopping arenas on the western shores while men in business suits work at the Shanghai Stock Exchange on the east bank. Fashion shows and techno rule the nightlife while traditional restaurants with lanterns and age-old family recipes are the restaurant favorites.A specta-bulous, dazzling waterfront esplanade with a wide range of colonial styles of architecture. Particularly striking at night, when brilliantly illuminated (note: lights off at 10:30pm). One of the most famous streets in China, and an absolute necessity to visit. Over the past few years, the buildings have started to be inhabited by shopping arcades and restaurants. The most impressive are 3 on the Bund and Bund 18, which have some of Shanghai’s most glamorous restaurants and bars as well as high-end glitzy international boutiques
Oriental Pearl TV is the modern symbol of Shanghai City. Standing beside the Huangpu Rive with a height of 468 meters (1536 feet), it is the tallest TV tower in Asia and the third highest in the world. This unusual structure that dominates the skyline is a great attraction to tourists.The Oriental Pearl TV Tower is located in Pudong Park in Lujiazui, Shanghai. The tower, surrounded by the Yangpu Bridge in the northeast and the Nanpu Bridge in the southwest, creates a picture of "twin dragons playing with pearls". The entire scene is a photographic jewel that excites the imagination and attracts thousands of visitors year-round.
Xin Tian DiShanghai Xin Tian Di has become the best place for visitors to appreciate the history and modern life of the city.A neighborhood of old Shikumen (a type of tenement found only in Shanghai) has been saved by a restoration that turned the old stone buildings into boutiques, clubs and restaurants. Xin Tian Di is not only China's finest historical redevelopment project, but also a model for Asia.enjoy a stunning acrobatic show, which boast the fame of "China's first entertainment show". After that, the guide will transfer you back to the hotel. Service ends here.
