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.
Get in touch with nature at Humble Administrator's Garden and Jinji Lake. Get a sense of the local culture at Former French Concession and Zhujiajiao Ancient Town. Explore Shanghai's surroundings by going to Shaxi Ancient Town (in Taicang), Kunshan (Zhouzhuang Water Town & Dangui Garden) and Suzhou (The Lingering Garden, Suzhou Ancient Grand Canal, & more). Pack the 28th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Happy Valley of Shanghai. Pack the 29th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Shanghai Disneyland. Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to The Bund (Wai Tan), take in panoramic vistas at Shanghai World Financial Center, take a stroll through Taikang Road, and get a taste of the local shopping with Nanjing Lu (Nanjing Road).
