This private, short tour is perfect for people who have a layover in Shanghai, or an otherwise short time to spend, and are keen to see most of the highlights of our fantastic city. On the tour, you will visit The Bund, Yu Garden and Xintiandi, all “must-see” spots in Shanghai. If time allows, you can also choose one other spot of your choice. You will also have a chance to taste Shanghai’s famous dim sum, soup dumpling and some secret recipe snacks. This tour is not to be missed!

Your driver will be waiting in the Shanghai airport at the exit of the arrival hall. S/he will take care your luggage and give you a ride to the Shanghai city center, where your professional local English-speaking guide will meet you at the first signature spot in city center.

The Bund on Shanghai’s waterfront is a showcase of pre-1949 architecture. It is a symbol of old and new Shanghai and is Shanghai’s most famous landmark.

Yu Garden is an enchanting classic sight from the Ming and Qing dynasties. The garden covers a significant space and includes many halls, springs, and other buildings of interest. There is a also a traditional handcraft shop, local snack spot and souvenir shop. This is the best place to buy traditional Chinese souvenirs! You can also experience a typical Chinese tea ceremony here.

Xintiandi in Chinese means “new world”. Here, there are well-preserved Shanghai traditional Shikumen lane houses. No wonder China’s first communist congress was held in one of these houses!

If time allows, you can have a complementary pick from one of the following places you find interesting to visit:

• French Concession
• Shanghai History Museum
• Lujiazui financial area---the Shanghai tower
• Jade Temple/Longhua Temple/Jingan Temple
• Tianzifang
• Fabric Market/Fake Market/Tea market
• Silk Museum
• Jewish refugee museum
• Shanghai Tower
• Jade Buddha Temple

At the end of the tour, your guide will send you to the Maglev train station from where you will experience the amazing 430hm/hr fast train back to the airport. Or, head to a hotel if you are not returning to the airport.
