8:00 a.m. Shanghai downtown hotel pickup & transfer to Zhujiajiao (about 1.5 hours)

9:30 a.m. Zhujiajiao (about 2 hours)

While other group tours only give you a cursory glimpse of the waterway, our guide will help you explore 3 carefully selected places in the waterway as below, recommended by our local experts. Most importantly, you will be taking the gondolas with our guide on the water way to view the facade of the Ancient Town from different angles and take some great photos of the swathes of pretty cole flowers in Kezhi Garden.

11:30 a.m. Lunch at a local restaurant in Zhouzhuang (about 1 hour)

12:30 p.m. Transfer to World Financial Center (about 1 hour)

1:30 p.m. World Financial Center (about 2 hours)

As one of the most popular attraction in Shanghai, the World Financial Center receives many tourists every day. Usually people have to stand in a queue to buy the tickets and it will take about at least half an hour! In order to save your time, our product team has studied the volume of tourists at different times a day. We concluded that the optimum time to take you there is by 13:30 in the afternoon for 3 reasons (Less people, brighter sunlight, better views, especially during days when air pollution is heavy). Your guide will buy the tickets on-line in advance, saving you from standing in a long, slow moving queue.

3:30 p.m. the Bund (about 1.5 hours)

Next, we will drive you to one of the top scenic spots in Shanghai-the Bund. To avoid giving you the most cursory of tours, we will furnish you with a map of the Bund where we have labelled the 17 most representative buildings and a guide to the differing architectures of Shanghai when your trip is confirmed. You will receive an informative pamphlet of photos of Shanghai's new, gleaming skyscrapers, together with the history and classic architecture of its colonial past.

5:00 p.m. Drive back to your hotel (about 1 hour)

• Please note: airport or train station drop-off is available requiring additional fee.
