Get an overview of the highlights, or dig in deeper at specific sites. Hotel pickup adds extra convenience, while upgrade options include transportation by private car (regular tour travels by taxis and metro) plus covered lunch and entrance fees.
What to Expect
Your private guide will meet you in your central Shanghai hotel. Be sure to tell them if there’s anything you’d like to focus on during your tour as your day is fully customizable.
A typical tour starts in Shanghai’s fashionable French Concession. Watch the locals ballroom dancing, practicing tai chi, or singing in Fuxing Park, and explore its charming avenues. Next, visit the Jade Buddha temple, home to two exquisite jade statues from Myanmar, and People’s Square with its striking modern architecture and weekend Marriage Market.
After lunch, visit the 400-year-old Yu Garden and the old-fashioned teahouse and bazaar nearby. Stroll the Bund and soak up views of Shanghai’s stunning skyline.
Finally, explore the trendy Xintiandi district. Of course, you can modify this itinerary to best match your interest. Whatever you choose, your tour end with your guide escorting you back to your hotel.
