Pass By: Shanghai Highlights, Shanghai 200436 China

Xintiandi & Former French Concession: This fashionable pedestrian street is composed of traditional Shikumen (“stone gate”) style houses that now serve as boutique shops and restaurants. Tianzifang, once an unassuming laneway in a factory area, has been transformed into the art district of Shanghai. Here you will find many art galleries, private studios, craft shops, and some of the most charming bars and cafes in Shanghai. Next proceed to Jade Buddha Temple

Jade Buddha Temple: This is an active temple that attracts large numbers of visitors, both local and from overseas. It is one of Shanghai’s few Buddhist temples, and was built between 1911 and 1918. It houses 70 resident monks, and the centerpiece is a sitting Buddha carved out of white jade and encrusted with jewels, measuring over two meters tall and rumored to weigh over 1000 kg (2200 pounds). Next proceed to Silk Museum.

Suzhou Silk Museum: The Suzhou Silk Museum documents the history and development of Chinese silk production and embroidery starting from 2000 BC. Exhibits include old looms with demonstrations, samples of ancient silk patterns, silk worms, and an explanation of sericulture (silk farming). In this impressive museum housed in a working silk factory, every detail in the silk making process is on display for guests to see up close. You will have a chance to watch the silkworms feasting on leaves and spinning their cocoons, and then walk on to see women stretching the silk to be made into duvets or other precious silk items. Next proceed to People’s Square and Shanghai Museum.

Shanghai Museum: This museum contains one of the finest collections of ancient Chinese art and antiques in the world. The distinctive building was designed in the shape of an ancient bronze cooking vessel, and contains 11 permanent and 3 rotating galleries. The museum has over 120,000 priceless pieces in its collection, including bronze, jade, ceramics, calligraphy, sculptures, paintings, furniture, imperial seals, and ancient coins.
