  • Shanghai has a lot of great attractions, the reason you dreamed of going there in the first place! From Yu Gardens to the Bund and the Oriental Pearl Tower to the beautiful hutongs and back alleys, Shanghai has enough to keep you exploring for weeks!

    The Bund is the main attraction in Shanghai, this old boardwalk has seen turmoil and growth and has undergone massive changes yet it looks out over a calmly flowing river while the Pudong bank behind it grows near superstructures every year.

    Nanjing Road, which jets off from the Bund, is the heart of Shanghai's capitalism and is a road dedicated to the biggest names in imported fashion, food and drink.

    Take it all in from the top of Jin Mao Tower, once Pudong's highest structure and now a relic while other towers pop up around it at staggering heights. The Oriental TV Tower nearby has been the icon of Shanghai since it was erected when the city began developing.

    Yu Gardens, in Puxi, was once the heart of Shanghai when it was a small fishing village near the sea. Now it has been rebuilt to look like it once did, and you'll find all manner of souvenirs and trinkets on offer.

    TaiKang Road and XinTianDi are similar to Yu Gardens in that they are rebuilt hutongs that make the alleyway homes of yesteryear the most sought after property in modern Shanghai. Continue your tour of the old world by visiting Shanghai's two most popular temples, the Jade Buddha and the LongHua.

    Finally, zip from the airport into Pudong on the fastest train in the world-- a main attraction for main locomotive and technology fans.
