Itinerary

You will be picked up at the lobby of the hotel on time and begin your tour with a leisure visit to Yu Garden erected in 1559 during the Ming Dynasty. It is claimed as one of representatives of Chinese classic landscape designs featuring the mixture of natural and artificial landscape. Follow your guide to enter the garden and be embraced by the smell of freshness and fragrance with profusion of trees and bushes after. Stroll over the winding path losing its way in the shadowy distance and walk through a long corridor into a tranquil courtyard. Check out the exquisite design engraved on the windows serving for the division of the scene. Then give a glimpse of them, hidden scenery would come into your sight surprisingly.

Then drive to Nanjing Road, the most bustling shopping center, with various grand department stores on both sides.

Later head to The Bund whose appealing historical buildings with various architectural styles take you back to hundreds of years ago in an instant. Stroll over the Bund and appreciate the mix of the old and new Shanghai.

The next stop is well- known Shanghai World Financial Center that looks like a bottle opener in the distance. As the 9th tallest building in the world, it is an ideal place where you can enjoy the panoramic view of Shanghai on the height of 474 meters by soaring to the 100th floor observation deck in a minute.

Lunch will be left on your own for more flexibility and your insider guide will offer nice recommendations based on your tastes and preferences.

Afterwards, pay a visit to New World of Shanghai featuring Shikumen style. As a witness to Shanghai's past and present prosperous growth, it restores the typical old and new scene of Shanghai, and you seem to travel back to the Shanghai of 1930s at the moment when you stroll over the lanes lined with European styles of buildings. But buildings with modern inside will bring you back to the reality.

Your last stop is Shanghai Jade Buddha Temple known for its largest jade Buddha inside. Whenever you visit, the temple always smells of incense and receives the flow of visitors and dwellers coming to pray for blessings.
