Day 1 - Shanghai


Check into the Radisson Hotel, an affordable but luxurious hotel in the center of the city. From here you'll be in the middle of Shanghai with a view of exactly what the metropolis can offer. After your checking, head to the Blue Frog for lunch. This sports bar has a romantic vibe for the casual couple. A more romantic alternative (or a desert option) is Whisk, a cafe made famous by its chocolate. Head to the Bird and Flower market after lunch and stroll the street picking out hypothetical future pets together before heading back towards your hotel and strolling along the ever-bustling Nanjing Road. You can spend hours window shopping or just people watching here, and it is a must-see. Grab dinner at either the Hunan restaurant, which offers spicy Chinese cuisine, or Sashas, a romantic, up-scale spot with outdoor seating. After dinner, stroll along Dongping Road, where you'll encounter local expats and a barrage of bars, clubs and dining. Escape the bustle with your lover to Cottons, which is near Dongping Road. This quiet retreat is the best place in town to grab a drink with your loved one under Shanghai's palm trees.

Day 2 - Shanghai


Hangzhou is a must-see if you are in Shanghai for more than a few days. Grab an early train (45 minutes away) to Hangzhou and try to arrive as early as possible. West Lake is beautiful any time of year, and the nearby Buddhist temple and gardens will make you fall in love with China. After your day-trip to Hangzhou, catch the train back to Shanghai and stroll through TaiKang Road, a converted hutong full of retro life, art and romance. Grab dinner at any of these Italian cafes. Make sure to explore all the back alleys, there are surprises around ever corner like new art shops, ice cream, wine and liquor. If TaiKang Road does not satisfy your lust for Shanghai's underbelly, catch a cab to MAO bar and dance the night away with the locals. All-you-can-drink for 100Rmb most nights, and music so loud your ears will pop.

Day 4 - Shanghai


Today is the most romantic day of your life. Wake up early and head to the Bund for Morning Tai Chi as you watch the sun rise. Take your lover to the spa to massage away any lingering aches from your day trips. Try aromatherapy massage or acupuncture. Dongbei Ren, Chinese cuisine infused with culture and adventure, is a great place for a peppy lunch to wake you up. Grab a cab to the nearby Yu Gardens, one of the top spots in Shanghai for souvenirs and other keep-sakes. You can easily spend hours here winding through the cafes, shops and shows. Don't skip this area, you'll remember this as a highlight. Head to the Bund with your baby and check out the sights. From here you can take a river cruise, watch the city's lights flick on (7pm sharp) or simply people watch. Grab a ferry across to the Pudong Bund and then surprise your darling by checking into the Grand Hyatt hotel in the famous Jin Mao Tower. This romantic hotel on the 80th floor has a view of the whole city, and was once the highest hotel/bar in the world. It is well worth the money for one lovely evening. Check out Cloud 9 bar on the top floor for a panoramic view of Shanghai at night. Grab dinner at Kathleen's and a drink at Glamour bar after you check in. Or, for a more intimate evening you can dine at any of the Hyatt's magnificent restaurants and have room service deliver a night cap to your suite.
