About Shanghai

In Shanghai, known as the “Paris of the East,” the cultures from East and West are intertwined to create the city’s cosmopolitan style. What was once the ten-mile Shanghai International Settlement, established by the British in conjunction with Americans and French living along the Huangpu River in present-day Puxi, the metropolis currently develops and changes every day. There are historical and cultural architectural wonders lining the Bund and Xintiandi, as well as fashionable attractions in Pudong, such as the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and Shanghai Disneyland Resort. Young creative souls can go to the Former French Concession’s Tianzifang and 1933 Laoyangfang (a former slaughterhouse turned into unique shops and art galleries) to experience what the area was once like centuries ago. The fashionable can walk up and down Nanjing Xi Shopping Street to their hearts’ content. Foodies can go to the Chenghuang (City God) Temple in the Yu Garden complex to try Shanghai delicacies. Shanghai is a multifaceted place no one will regret visiting.

Observation Deck
The Oriental Pearl Radio & Television Tower is arguably the most recognizable feature on Shanghai’s skyline. Situated across the Huangpu River from the Bund, the Oriental Pearl tower stands 468 m to the top of its antenna spire. Completed in 1994, it has come to symbolize China’s modernization and emergence on the global scene. Visitors travel up and down the Oriental Pearl Tower in double-decker elevators that can hold up to fifty people. Located on the tower’s lower levels is the Shanghai Municipal History Museum. Given its iconic status, this is certainly a can’t-miss attraction.

The Bund
4.7/5

Historical Architecture
Cultural Experiencial Area
Arguably Shanghai's most-famous tourist attraction, the Bund is a waterfront promenade and famous business district in central Shanghai. Historically, the Bund was the city’s main financial and trading center, and was located within the Shanghai International Settlement, an area under nominal British control between 1843 and 1941. The walking areas extend roughly 1.6 km along the west bank of the Huangpu River. Owing to its historic status and zoning restrictions, the Bund contains fantastic examples of classic Shanghai architecture. For this reason, it is a popular spot for photography, offering the best views across the river to Shanghai’s modern skyline in Lujiazui. No visit to Shanghai would be complete without a visit to the Bund.
Yu Garden
4.6/5
10,373 Reviews
Garden
Yu Garden is located in central Shanghai’s Huangpu District, on a spot within the boundaries of former Old City. It is the only classic Chinese garden in the downtown area and was once a private garden for Ming Dynasty officials. The garden covers roughly two hectares and contains various rambling pathways, hidden pavilions, and classic flora. It is a good place to escape the bustling modern city outside. Take note of the hundreds of plaques and inscriptions written by well-known individuals, as well as the park’s collection of stone carvings. Yuyuan Bazaar, located nearby, is good to browse for antiques and souvenirs.

Trip Moments

Hero_V5   
Singapore is a country I’ve always liked, not only because the city is very clean, organized and beautiful, not to mention, it is famously known as a “garden city”, but also because hard-working and brave Singaporeans created many global miracles on this little piece of land, making it a logistics and freight center for Asia and the world. Clarke Quay really sees this difference between the past and present. Back then it was just a little port offloading goods, now it has become an entertainment central, bustling with activity.
Surrounded by high rises, Clarke Quay is filled with 2 to 3 story high, South Asian style houses. You really see quite the visual contrast here. In these well decorated 2 and 3 story houses, you will find places offering shopping, wine and dine, and entertainment experiences. Not only are they popular among locals, American, European and Chinese tourists really enjoy these locales too.
Clarke Quay is a place where you can find excellent food all around Singapore. As we all know, Singapore is a very multicultural country where Chinese, Malays, Indians, Indonesians, Americans and Europeans all live. The multicultural community there has directly contributed to the diversity in Singapore’s gourmet landscape. At Clarke Quay, you can find many ethnic gourmet specialties.
It’s a completely different life from night to day. At night, not only are all bars at Clarke Quay completely filled, even roads at the front are filled with tables and people. A lot of them are primarily locals from Singapore, then Americans and Europeans. They would gather in groups to momentarily ignore the stress in their day to day work, have a drink, chit chat and have a good time.

Shanghai
Shanghai has, in a mere 25 years, emerged as global financial center and trendsetting modern metropolis. Glittering skyscrapers dot the skyline in Lujiazui, just across the Huangpu River from the stately architecture along the Bund. Chic cafes and restaurants intermingle with street vendors and classic gardens. Known as the “Paris of the East,” Shanghai garnered a reputation for noir and intrigue in the 1920s and ‘30s. The image of Art Deco buildings, gangsters with tommy guns, and cabaret never faded. As China’s undisputed financial capital, Shanghai is a city on the cutting edge. Money talks and glamor abounds; yet the past is never far away.
