After breakfast, your guide and driver
will pick you up at your hotel. Today, the first stop is to visit Shanghai Museum, the No.4
museum in China. Enter into the “round heaven and square earth” and enjoy over
120,000 precious historic Chinese artistic relics, from bronze, ceramics,
painting and calligraphic works to jade, coins, seals and sculpture, etc. You
won’t miss Da Ke Ding, the precious treasure of Shanghai Museum, showing the
history and economy of the West Zhou Dynasty (1046 BC-771 BC).
Then, be followed a trip to Yu Garden, a shining star among
all dotted ancient Chinese gardens in Jiangnan which fully embodies the
traditional design of architecture. Jagged pavilion with elegant decoration,
glittering pools with roving fish, sprouting pine trees, all these pleasant
scenes refresh your mood. Adjacent to the garden is the Yuyuan Bazaar where you can
savor tasteful local snacks and explore elaborate traditional Chinese
handicrafts and art works.
Later, drive to Lujiazui Area of Pudong
New District to visit Shanghai World Financial
Center (SWFC) where you can have a panoramic view of the whole
Shanghai and Huangpu River area. Ascend yourselves to 474 meters on the 100th
floor to experience sky walk on the transparent glass-walled walkway and feel
Shanghai lying at your feet and blue sky over your head.
You will then transfer to another
popular landmark of Shanghai – Nanjing Road
which is shopping paradise as well as a great place to take a wonderful walk to
experience the local modern atmosphere. Lastly, you will stop at the Bund. Originally the towpath
for transporting, the Bund transformed into a feverish trading district. Stroll
along the Bund, feel the perfect fusion of Chinese culture and Western culture,
and seize the stunning Shanghai skyline with your own eyes.
Optional Activity: take Huangpu River cruise to
enjoy fantastic night view of Shanghai.
