Shanghai has a lot of cool activities and things to see and do, especially once you get to know the city and have the main attractions out of the way.
For example, enjoy a weekend where you meet fun locals and expats at the Ozark Rock Climbing Center. You'll get to work out, see something new, meet new people and enjoy a cool activity with cool people. Likewise, morning Tai Chi on the Bund or in any of the major parks around Shanghai is a cool way to meet folks, enjoy a cultural activity and get your day started earlier than normal.
Enjoy a bit off the offbeat with the expected by visiting the Pudong side of the Bund. The view of puxi is equally beautiful and you'll have a fascinating view of the old side of town. From there, head to the expected destination of Nanjing Road, where you'll find lots of cool little shops and restaurants to spend time in.
For a bit of the quaint beauty of Shanghai, visit the Bird and Flower Market as well as TaiKang Road and DaGu Road. These three places will show you three distinctly different aspects of life in Shanghai, from the old and rustic, to the developing, to the developed. Its a cool way to get to know the largest city in China.
Finally, the Lama Temple and Zhongzan Park are great ways to get in touch with your inner self while exploring the outer world.
