Pudong International Airport (PVG)
Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport (SHA)

An energetic megacity that draws worldwide attention, Shanghai intertwines Western customs with Chinese traditions — offering experiences you can’t find anywhere else. From French neighborhoods with hipster microbreweries to meandering alleyways in the Chinese Quarter, the city’s stimulating pulse and local color will keep you coming back for more.

Selfie-worthy Views

For a spectacular view of the Pudong skyline, visit The Bund — a landmark promenade on the west bank of the Huangpu River. As you stroll along the tree-lined boardwalk, you can admire the soaring skyscrapers and the many well-preserved colonial-era buildings that survived World War II. Locals also start their day here practicing tai chi, jogging and flying kites.

Take a break from the busy streets by visiting Yu Garden, a 400-year-old Ming Dynasty private garden. Or if you’re downtown, check out the Jing’an Temple. It is surrounded by modern high-rise buildings, and is home to the largest jade Buddha statue in China. Then, make your way to Moganshan Road to peruse more than 100 innovative galleries and art studios.

One of the most iconic sites in the city is the second-tallest building in the world, the Shanghai Tower. Ride up to the observation deck — 121 floors high — for panoramic views that will take your breath away. Or take a day trip to Suzhou and Zhouzhuang, to see its winding waterways and charming houses. Ride in a gondola, savor a delicious Chinese lunch, and visit a 14th-century silk factory.

Shopping, Dining & Entertainment

Shopping fanatics will find avenues lined with glitzy malls, luxury labels, colorful open-air markets and trendy shops. Sharpen your bargaining skills, and bring an extra bag to this exciting retail mecca. When you’re ready for dining and entertainment, there’s no shortage of options — from Shanghainese, Japanese and European fare to comedy clubs, acrobatic shows and dance clubs.
