Behind the shimmering skyscrapers and fast paced city life of Shanghai lies an altogether quieter, more contemplative scene in the cultural, historic, religious and artistic wealth that can be explored through the city’s museums, temples and galleries. Beginning with the Shanghai Museum, you’ll uncover the extraordinary range of Asian artefacts on display, from delicate bronze works to Qing dynasty jade and Buddhist sculptures, all brought to life by the accompanying audio guide.

From here, you’ll continue onto the revered Jade Buddha Temple to join other worshippers as they come to pay their respects to the famous Jade statue before diving back into the 21st century at M50. This collection of boutiques, galleries and studios showcases the best of contemporary Shanghai and its thriving arts scene. Chat with local artists and discover modern culture through the eyes of the city’s inhabitants. You’ll be returned to your hotel after half a day of exploring, hopefully armed with a greater understanding of the cultural history and modern art scene of the city.
