  • Paul Tierney
“China is definitely a very large country and when I was planning to go there, I was hesitant to choose my destinations. The Golden Triangle was really a great choice and I'm so happy with the trip I had.

Thank you China Ways! Also, my tour guides Michael, Zan, and Lisa were very helpful and made my trip more joyful.”
Great route if you are into ancient culture and natural scenes. Reviewed Tour: Discover China: Beijing, Xian, Chengdu & Shanghai

  • Shaina Horton
“These cities were exactly based on my test, mixture of old palaces and pagodas and beautiful natural environment, along with skyscrapers.

I was hesitant between some tours and finally contacted China Ways and they recommended this tour based on my desires and I really liked it.”
It was an extraordinary experience for my family. Reviewed Tour: China Golden Triangle Tour: Beijing, Xian & Shanghai

“Every city had its beauties and wonders. For me, Terracotta Warriors was really an amazing thing to watch. I was just staring at them thinking "who made these"

Our tour guides were also very nice and informative and made the trip twice as interesting.”

Shanghai - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Shanghai Travel Highlights

  • Stroll along the Bund, Shanghai’s financial center, and take in the art-deco and neoclassical buildings. Shop in the exclusive boutiques, have a coffee and snap a shot of the Pudong skyline.
  • Explore the ‘Old Town’ for a sense of traditional China.
  • The neighbourhoods of the French Concession offer the best of laid-back entertainment from retail therapy to fine food.
  • See a Buddha carved from pure jade at the aptly named Jade Buddha Temple.
  • For those wanting to seek out Shanghai’s edgier side, head to M50 design space.
  • The Yuyuan Gardens are an unmissable experience of fine Chinese landscaping. Avoid the weekend for a peaceful visit.
  • Shanghai Tower is China’s tallest building - no easy feat.
  • Shanghai Museum perfectly displays Chinese history for all.

Shanghai Travel Tips

  • Avoid the heat and crowds of summer and visit Shanghai in early spring (March to May) or fall (September to November).
  • Tipping is becoming more common in Shanghai. Though 5% tip is sufficient in restaurants.
  • Street food is second-to-none in Shanghai. Make the most of it if you need to watch your budget.
  • If eating alone, ask for ‘Xiao Pan’. You’ll be given smaller, cheaper portions suitable for one.
  • The Shanghai Metro is huge but also quick and easy to use and machines have an English option.
  • Get a transport card and recharge it to use on buses, ferries, metros and even taxis.
  • Drink bottled water.
  • If you have respiratory problems, consider bringing a mask to fight the fog.
