With a nickname like the "Pearl of the Orient," it's not surprising Shanghai offers some of the most rewarding attractions and activities in the Far East.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Longhua Temple and Shanghai Confucian Temple. Get some historical perspective at The Bund (Wai Tan) and Zhujiajiao Ancient Town. Change things up with these side-trips from Shanghai: Suzhou (Canglang Pavilion (Blue Wave Pavilion), Jingsi Garden, & more), Wuxi (Hongshan Taibo Tomb, Xutang Ancient Town, & more) and Jinghang Grand Canal Hangzhou (in Hangzhou). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum, enjoy breathtaking views from Oriental Pearl Tower (Dongfang Mingzhu), make a trip to The Bund City Sculptures, and get a taste of the local shopping with Nanjing Lu (Nanjing Road).

To see maps, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Shanghai road trip app .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Sunan Shuofang International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 52°F, and evening lows to 40°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
