Highlights

In the 19th century, Shanghai was only a small fishery town. However, due to its good harbor position, Shanghai developed rapidly and became one of the foreign trading ports of China. From 1990, after reform and open policy, Shanghai started to progress vigorously, and since then has become China’s biggest economic center and the world’s biggest trading harbor.
Visit Shanghai’s finest sights in our one-day program.

Yu Yuan Garden

The Yu Yuan Garden is one of Shanghai’s most precious green oases. Constructed in the 16th century, this green oasis can be described as one of Shanghai’s most valuable sights. It combines all the aspects of a classical Chinese garden – water, architecture, vegetation and rocks, creating a typical South Chinese garden style. See beautiful traditional buildings, ponds and pagodas on a walk through the garden, take a seat somewhere and learn about the history and stories surrounding Yu Yuan Garden.

The Bund

That impressive skyline so typical of Shanghai is called the Bund. One the main reasons for Shanghai’s current importance to China and the world is its foreign trade, established in the middle of 19th century. In the treaty of Nanjing in 1842, Shanghai was selected as one of five cities open to foreign countries. Since then, the favorably located Bund has been the center of Shanghai’s flourishing growth. The old colonial buildings at the riverside of Huangpu River give witness to Shanghai’s most uprising days, giving the Bund’s boulevard a more international flair than elsewhere in China.

Tian Zi Fang

As a former part of the French concession area, Tian Zi Fang is one of Shanghai’s most preserved quarters of Shanghai. The charming small streets and alleyways hide lots of cafes and small shops selling handcrafted goods, making the neighborhood a delightful experience for seeking out souvenirs or Chinese art. The local inhabitants of Tian Zi Fang are very proud of the calming and laid back atmosphere here.

Shanghai local snacks and Shanghai cuisine

As food has a very high importance in the Chinese culture, Shanghai offers a wide range of typical dishes. Besides many seafood dishes, the typical Hu cuisine, as the local cuisine is also referred to, also offers pork and chicken dishes. A special delicacy is Xiaolongbao, a special kind of dumpling, filled with meat and soup, and often served as a snack. For some popular restaurants, you will see throngs of Chinese people waiting, sometimes for hours, for a chance to sample these delicious local dishes.

Boat trip along the Bund

Witness the most spectacular view of Shanghai, where the old colonial-era buildings of the Bund and skyscrapers of the upcoming Pudong district create an unforgettable contrast of past and present.
