Shanghai – Once known as the ‘Paris of the East’, Shanghai is now one of Asia’s most influential cities. Prior
to communist arrival in 1949, Shanghai was a city with European-style mansions and was the most
important trading port in Asia. Today it presents a blend of cultures; the modern and the traditional, along
with the occidental and oriental. Modern skyscrapers intermingle with 1920s ‘shikumen’ buildings. This
combination is what attracts millions of visitors each year.
Shanghai Old Town and Yu Gardens – The old town of Shanghai, where cobbled streets are lined with traditional
shops selling herbal medicines, handicrafts, Chinese tea and a variety of tantalising snacks, is the original
centre of Shanghai and for decades was the seat of Chinese authority in Shanghai. The Yu Gardens is seen
as one of the most perfect examples of Chinese garden style. Built by the Ming-era governor, Pan Yunduan,
as a retirement gift for his father, the Yu Gardens is home to exquisite jade rock, koi-filled ponds and
stunning, tranquil pavilions.
Shanghai The Bund – Recognised as Shanghai’s former ‘Wall Street’, the Bund is home to an impressive collection of
buildings from the early trade houses of the 1850s to the glamorous Art Deco modernism of the 1920s.
Originally the home of the foreign population of Shanghai, the Bund’s architecture has inherited much
western influence and is a stark contrast to the Pudong skyline, sitting across the Huangpu River.
Shanghai Silk Museum – The Silk Museum is an educational journey through the production of silk, one of China’s
most famous and luxurious materials. Learn about the use of silkworms and silk moths in its production; the
manufacturing process; as well as silk’s journey along the Silk Road which brought this product across Asia
Shanghai Huangpu River Cruise – There is no better way to see the juxtaposition of eras in Shanghai’s history than by
taking a cruise on the Huangpu River. At night, the dazzling colours and lights from Pudong shine bright onto
the more modest twilight of the Bund.
Zhujiajiao – One of Shanghai’s sleepy water towns, Zhujiajiao is built on an old canal system once used to
transport goods all over imperial China. The town’s alleyways exude old-world charm, whilst the waterways
are lined with ancient buildings and crossed by stone bridges.
Shanghai Museum – One of the most esteemed and acclaimed museums in China, the Shanghai Museum has
a comprehensive collection of ancient Chinese art. Sprawled over five floors, one could spend half, if not a
full day in this comprehensive museum. The shape of the museum was designed to resemble a Chinese vessel,
known as a Ding.
People’s Square – Home to the Shanghai Museum, People’s Square is an ideal centre for people to meet,
do tai chi and take part in dance classes.
