Shanghai Overview

Known as “The largest city in the Far East in 1930s”, Shanghai was the “paradise” among the adventurers and expats.

Now it has been developed into the new financial centre in the world after the opening and reforming of China in 1978. It has come a long way since its humble days of being a fishing village.

Today, Shanghai is definitely the city you must not miss in your trip to China.

It's the most populous city in the world with over 24.5 million people and it's rich with  a nice blend of fantastical views, a myriad of perspectives, both ancient and modern, Eastern and Western, and hyper-fast and laid back.

Day 1 Shanghai

Meals: Chinese Lunch

Your best of Shanghai group tour starts off in the morning, you will be picked up at your hotel lobby at the appointed time and join in the group with other bright-eyed and bushy-tailed travellers.

First on the agenda is our visit to Jade Buddha Temple, which is famous for the exquisite and graceful Jade Buddha.

The temple is one of the most famous temples in the downtown. The tour then makes our way to the Fresh Water Pearl Gallery.

Here is where we take time to observe the process of pearl cultivation.

People Square is undoubtedly the city centre of Shanghai which is surrounded by many great buildings, hotels, museums and other must-see attractions.

It is known for being a go-to place where locals relax.

The Shanghai Museum is only a skip and a hop away, another must-see while in Shanghai.

It's filled with ancient bronze articles, ceramics, ancient Chinese furniture, Chinese paintings, calligraphy and other arts and crafts.

You can also rent an audio phone (USD $5) to make 1.5 hours interesting tour. From here we take time to fill up our empty stomach and eat lunch, classic Chinese served on a table.

Your best of Shanghai group tour then kicks off the afternoon by paying a visit to the famous Yuyuan Garden, built in 1559 A.D.(Ming Dynasty), which is considered to be the crown jewel among all the private gardens in South of Yangtze River.

We then stroll around the Old Town of Shanghai and experience exactly how the locals live life, strolling through the vibrant streets.

Moving away from the hustle and bustle of Shanghai native life, we then move to the ever-so-romantic Bund.

On both sides, you can enjoy both classic old Shanghai and the fantastic skyline of the new Shanghai -- truly a special place symbolizing both yin and yang.

Feel free to take the photos with the landmarks and appreciate its spectacular view -- an Instagrammers dream and a travellers reality.

The best of Shanghai tour group then drifts over to the silk factory where we get to know how Chinese Silk has been produced since the 14th century.

Then finally our last stop, we make it to Xintiandi, one of the latest architectural attractions in Shanghai, an area formally consisting of residential buildings that spanned two square blocks.

Now it is transformed into the trendy clubs, restaurants, boutique stores, and other leisurely pleasures.

From here you are free to explore on your own or go back to your hotel with the group, officially ending your best of Shanghai group tour.
