Shanghai China

Shanghai, China's biggest and most successful metropolis, emits an air of self-assurance and vigor despite its size and status. Just going there would be worthwhile for those reasons. In contrast to locations that are home to historic, imperial, or scenic attractions, Shanghai is home to a remarkable and one-of-a-kind collection of more contemporary features. The following is a list of the most important activities that you must accomplish while in Shanghai.

At the Bund, take in the timeless beauty of the cityscape

The Bund is without a doubt at the very top of the list of must-see attractions in Shanghai. Views of Shanghai's iconic skyline, including colonial buildings and modern skyscrapers, can be seen from The Bund, which runs along the Huangpu River, which is about 500 meters wide and divides the city in half.

To get a good view of the city skyline, you may either go for a walk along the Bund or take a boat on the Huangpu River. A one-of-a-kind and luxurious option to cross the river is available via the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel.

Enjoy green landscapes at Yuyuan Garden

Yuyuan is the most respected garden in Shanghai and the only Ming Dynasty garden that has survived the city. It is located not far from the Bund.It has become one of the most popular attractions in the city as a result of its breathtaking environment, which is distinguished by ornate bridges, bright pagodas, and cozy enclaves that are divided by "dragon walls," which are barriers with dragon designs on top.

From the top of the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, look out across Shanghai

On the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, not only do you get the chance to enjoy sitting inside a revolving hotel in this revered and outstanding landmark, but you also get the chance to see Shanghai metropolis from a "Space Module," which is the highest observatory level set at 350 meters (1,148 feet) above the ground. On this level, you are able to view the city from an altitude of 350 meters (1,148 feet).This aesthetically pleasing structure is comprised of 3 legs, 11 spheres, and 15 observatory levels. Within this structure lies the Shanghai Municipal History Museum, where you can learn about the history of the city via the numerous relics on display, and the Shanghai Tower, where you can get a bird's-eye perspective of the city.

A bird's-eye view of the whole of Shanghai can be had from the Shanghai Tower, which is the tallest skyscraper in China and the second-tallest building in the world. This observation deck is becoming an increasingly popular destination. Another perk is that it boasts the world's quickest elevator, which can transport passengers all the way up to level 119 in record time.

Because it is higher than the Oriental Pearl TV Tower but has a shorter line, the Shanghai Tower is included in many of our Shanghai excursions rather of the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. Check out one of our example itineraries to see how you may visit it in the most time-efficient manner possible.
