Book this 5-hour guided tour and get the chance to see both the modern and the ancient sides of Shanghai, the Chinese metropolis that is widely considered to be the country's financial capital. Your guide will pick you up in the lobby of your hotel at Shanghai city centre and take you to Yu Garden (also called Yuyuan Garden) and its surrounding bazaar area.

Enjoy the serene beauty of the garden that is said to have been built more than 400 years ago and discover a variety of local snacks and goods in the bazaar area. Next, follow your guide to a silk factory where you can see the process of making silk goods.

Head for the French Concession next and see its pleasant mix of wide, tree-lined avenues and interesting European-style architecture. The area is home to gorgeous decorations and Tudor-style mansions and still retains a European feel despite being in the heart of a Chinese city. As the premier residential and retail district of Shanghai, this place is full of boutique shops, charming cafes and popular restaurants.

Up next on the itinerary is the Huangpu River night cruise. The Huangpu divides Shanghai into two parts (old and new, according to some), the elegant and stately Bund on the west and the glitzy and modern Pudong on the east with its towering skyscrapers. The best way to see both sides of the city and to fathom its rich history is to cruise along the river and take in the magnificent skyline of the city.

Once the cruise trip is over, your guide will drive you back to your hotel in Shanghai.

“I've seen a visiting Chinese acrobatic show before in my hometown but this one blew it out of the water. The show is definitely a must see when in Beijing, along with the Great Wall of course.”
