Next up is a visit to Yuyuan Garden, an ancient masterpiece of classical Chinese gardens. First constructed in 1559, Yuyuan consists of beautiful traditional architecture, water features, verdant green plants and rockeries that create an oasis of peaceful calm in the midst of modern Shanghai. Nearby is the Yuyuan Bazaar where you can try some traditional Shanghai snacks and shop for souvenirs and traditional Chinese handicrafts and works of art.
After your tour, we will take you on to your hotel for the night.
Recommended evening activities:
1) Experience the amazing Acrobatics Show, featuring breathtaking performances of traditional Chinese acrobatics. Usual showtimes are 19:30 – 21:00 daily.
2) Enjoy a relaxing Huangpu River cruise to see Shanghai’s incredibly beautiful skyline when it is lit up at night.
From high above Shanghai to street level, we will move on to another of Shanghai’s popular attractions at Nanjing Road, a shopper’s paradise as well as a great place for a walk to experience the modern and vibrant atmosphere of the city. From Nanjing Road we will travel on to The Bund, which started off as a simple towpath for transporting goods from the river but eventually transformed into a world-class trading district. The Bund is a special area that fully reflects the fusion of Chinese and Western culture and architecture with the stunningly modern buildings of the new Shanghai skyline just across the river.
After today’s tour, your tour guide and driver will take you on to the airport, train station or the Shanghai port to board your cruise ship as you head on to your next destination.
