When to visit
Visit Shanghai old town & The Yu Garden
Head to Shanghai's old town, an architectural treasure tucked away from the high rises and bright lights that Shanghai is so famous for. This visit will take you to the traditional part of the city, and to its lilongs, steeped in history.
Visit The Bund & The Nanjing Road
Take a stroll along The Bund on the Huangpu River. Once Shanghai's financial centre, it boasts impressive colonial architecture, so strikingly different in comparison to Shanghai's towering skyscrapers behind. After, head west to the popular Nanjing Road.
