Day 1 - Shanghai


Start you day in luxury at the JW Marriott. Get up early and explore People's Park just across the street. Locals flock here to practice tai chi, and on the weekend parents meet on the west side of the park to arrange blind dates for their children. When you've worked up an appetite, head to Huanghe Lu and the other streets north of the park for fried dumplings and other street food specialties. For a more upscale brunch option, try Kathleen's and its beautiful rooftop views. Then head to the Shanghai Museum to explore the collections of Chinese art. When you have had enough of the classics, move to the Urban Planning Museum to get an understanding of Shanghai's rapid modernization and to orient yourself at the 3D map. Pick up lunch at any of the Western shopping malls in the area. The bottom floors feature food courts and the upper levels have more sit down fare. In the afternoon stroll down Nanjing Road, taking in the hubbub and dodging the crowds. When you final reach the Bund, enjoy the view of the Pudong skyline and take the tourist tunnel train over to the Oriental Pearl Tower. The Tower offers another great view of Shanghai and the basement features a very comprehensive museum of Shanghai history. In the evening, if you're still up for it, take a scenic Huangpu River Cruise. Depending on which view you prefer, dine at famous M on the Bund for views of Pudong or splurge at Jade on 36 in the Pudong Shangri-La for views of old Shanghai and the Bund.
