Details

7:30 a.m. Shanghai downtown hotel pickup

8:30 a.m. Shanghai Old Street (about 30 minutes)

Historically known as Miaoqian Dajie, the old business district combines tourist attractions, shops, entertainment and cultural exhibits. As it was once home to the city's earliest bank, gold shop, jeweler's store, wine shop and tea house, its rich cultural heritage shines through.

9:00 a.m. Yu Garden (Yù Yuán, 豫园) (about 1 hour)

The Yu Gardens are a classical oasis—albeit a generally crowded one—in Shanghai's relentlessly modernizing cityscape. The gardens, completed in 1577 by the aristocratic Ming Dynasty Pan family, retain their original grace and elegance even in the face of throngs of tourists and the commercial hubbub of Yuyuan Market just on the other side of the garden walls. Situated in the City God Temple area, it's the perfect place to pick up some of city's finest mementos and souvenirs for your friends and family back home.

11:00 p.m. the Bund (Wàitān, 外滩) (about 40 minutes)

One of Shanghai's most recognizable destinations, the Bund is known for its impressive array of foreign concession-era Art Deco and neoclassical architecture, fusing both Western and Chinese characteristics. The Bund also offers breathtaking views of Pudong's towering and simply astonishing skyline; a seemingly stunning contrast of past and present Shanghai. You will walk the Garden Bridge from the Bund Bull and wander around Huangpu Park, learning about the Bund's history and the New Pudong District from the guide at hand.

12:00 p.m. Lunch at a local restaurant

1:00 p.m. People's Square (Rénmín Guǎngchǎng, 人民广场) (about 30 minutes)

People's Square, like much of today's Shanghai, is a showcase. Fortunately, it's also home to beautifully maintained gardens and parkscapes, culminating in People's Park, which occupies the northeastern quadrant of this massive tract of land in the middle of Puxi (the west bank of the Huangpu River).

2:00 p.m. Shanghai Museum (Shànghǎi Bówùguǎn, 上海博物馆) (about 1.5 hours)

One of China's four largest museums, the Shanghai Museum is primarily dedicated to showcasing artifacts from China's long history, including rare specimens of jade, bronzes, ceramics, calligraphy and painting. It also exhibits major traveling exhibitions from around the world. One hall displays traditional ceremonial outfits from many of the remarkably diverse ethnic groups living with the territory governed by the People's Republic today.

4:00 p.m. French Concession (Fǎ Zūjiè, 法租界) (about 30 minutes)

The former French Concession is, for many visitors, the highlight of a visit to Shanghai, delivering much of what this fabled city promises. It's also become the city's hottest and hippest neighborhood, where trendy bars and clubs multiply like mushrooms after a rainstorm. Shanghai's idiosyncratic push-pull between new and old, development and preservation, takes a special form in the French Concession, making it an absolutely unique urban experience.

5:30 p.m. Return to hotel

* Please note: 2 shopping stops (tea house & pearl city) will be arranged during the trip, about 30 minutes each.
