Shanghai

Nanjing Road

On the opposite end of Yu Garden lies Nanjing Road, the most luxurious pedestrian-only shopping strip in Shanghai. Nanjing Road is quintessential Shanghai with its bustling commercial activities; it is no wonder that this strip of shopping district is called a shopper s paradise! It is 3.7 miles long, making it the world s longest shopping district with over a million visitors daily. At night, the numerous neon lights decorate the skyline of Nanjing Road and beckon tourists to enjoy the nightlife that it has to offer.

The Bund

The Bund is one of the city s most recognizable architectural symbols and a representation of both old and new Shanghai. Located on the western bank of the Huangpu River, the 1 mile-long (1.5 km) waterfront boulevard was the site of some of the earliest foreign settlements. Today, this riverside row of brownstones enjoys a new vitality and is still home to many of the city s hotels, bars, and banks.

Yu Garden

Finished in 1577 in the Ming Dynasty, Yu Garden is a renowned classical garden located in Nanshi, Shanghai. Throughout its 400 years of history, it has undergone numerous restorations and was finally opened to the public in 1961.The 65,600 square feet (20,000 sq. m) garden is smaller than others of its kind, but its attractions and exquisite scenery are among the finest in China. Enclosed in an undulating dragon wall, the garden is filled with traditional Ming Dynasty pavilions, elaborate rockeries, ponds, and arched bridges.

Shanghai Museum

The sprawling Shanghai museum houses a comprehensive collection of over 120,000 relics of bronze works, calligraphy, and paintings. Located in the People s Square, the museum offers a wealth of knowledge of ancient Chinese art history.

Oriental Pearl TV Tower

Oriental Pearl Tower, measuring 1,536 feet, is the highest TV tower in Asia and the world s third tallest. Overlooking the Huangpu River, the Oriental Pearl Tower has been a staple on every tourist s Shanghai travel plans. The tower, resting on green pastures by the river, allures numerous visitors to travel up to the top of the sphere to view the splendor of the city.

Suzhou

Often known as the “Venice of the Orient,” the water village of Suzhou is located in the heart of the Yangtze Delta south of the Jiangsu Province. With over 2500 years of history, Suzhou contains a lingering charm reminiscent of its rich past. Its stunning classical gardens are among the finest in China and a cruise along the Grand Canal affords stunning views of ancient stone bridges, pagodas and breezy willow trees.

Acrobatics Show

A performance not to be missed, this acrobatics show presented by the Shanghai Acrobatics Troupe will captivate audiences both young and old. Acrobats display stunning feats of physical strength, balance, and skill as they juggle large porcelain urns with their feet, spin stacks of plates with ease, and tumble through the air.
