Tour Itinerary

Your private tour guide will pick you up from the hotel lobby after breakfast. Your guide will advise the exact pick up time one day before departure. It’s going to be a busy day today, so be ready to maximize your time.

The Huangpu River marks the division between the Pudong and Puxi areas of Shanghai, and the best place to have a bird’s eye view of both parts of Shanghai is the World Financial Center. As you take the high speed elevator to the 100th floor of this skyscraper and see the city from the observatory, you will notice the contrast between the ‘Big City’ and the ‘Small People’. Drive to the Bund and consider the historical architecture. Listen to the fascinating stories from the guide relating to each of the buildings on the Bun and appreciate the development of Shanghai.

You are going to try authentic Shanghai food, and your tour guide will recommend a local restaurant to you based on your preference. Go on to Shanghai Museum after lunch and take a walk through the history book of China. Next you will be delighted as you visit Yu Garden, a classic Chinese garden with pools, rockeries, pathways and pavilions. You will be amazed at how advanced garden landscaping was about 400 years ago. Your last stop is the Yuyuan Bazaar, so be prepared to be surprised by the variety of mouthwatering snacks and food. Find your favorite food and then finally drive back to your hotel.

Good to Know:
In the evening you can go shopping along Nanjing Road. The ERA Acrobatic Show and Pujiang River Cruise are also things you should not miss. If anything interests you, the tour guide will help you with the arrangements.
