10:00 a.m. Yu Garden (Yù Yuán, 豫园) (about 1.5 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.

1:00 p.m. the Bund (Wàitān, 外滩) (about 45 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.

2:00 p.m. East Nanjing Road (Nánjīng Dōng Lù, 南京东路) (about 30 minutes)

When people mention Shanghai's Nanjing Road, they're probably talking about East Nanjing Road, a pedestrian shopping street running for blocks between the northeast corner of People's Square and the Bund. If you spend more than a couple days in Shanghai, you'll likely end up pushing your way through the crowds beneath the neon signs and signature Shanghai mix of brand-new high rises and late colonial-period architecture.

3:00 p.m. Arrange your own transport back to the hotel.

* Please note: 1 shopping stop (tea) will be arranged during the trip, about 30 minutes.
