If you like, enjoy a boat cruise (optional) to taste attractive and typical view of local life and also to relax yourself leisurely in the tranquility.
Afterwards, pay a visit to the bustling Nanjing Road, the most popular pedestrian street in Shanghai where well-designed stores festooned with their brands line up along the main roadway. Wonder at the street and appreciate the latest trend of this international metropolis. Then continue with a visit to The Bund alongside Huangpu River, the most magnificent landmark and also the name card of Shanghai to the world. Stroll along The Bund, sightseeing boats cruising on the Huangpu River are whistling at intervals and meanwhile exotic building clusters abounded with history more than hundreds of years gently come into your sight and bring you back to Shanghai of 1930s instantly.
Lunch will be left on your own for more flexibility and your insider guide will offer nice recommendations based on your tastes and preferences.
