What to Expect
Your day begins with a departure from your selected starting point. Choose to book a private vehicle or travel by public transportation. The itinerary is completely flexible, but note many admission charges are not included. Many tours start with the Pudong financial district, where you can view Shanghai from an impressive vantage point. Visit the observatory tower at the World Financial Center, the Oriental Pearl Tower, or Shanghai Tower. Then, you may want to explore the colonial-era promenade—the Bund. You can visit the Confucius Temple, enjoy dumplings for lunch (own expense,) or go to Yuyuan Garden and Bazaar. Try a Tang Dynasty–style tea ceremony, a popular option, followed by a visit to Shanghai’s Former French Concession area to see colonial-era buildings transformed into restaurants and shops. The tour ends back at your start point.
