Trip Summary

Chinese Culture, At a Glance

This guided tour is for those who have just one day to see the best of Shanghai. We start off with the city's more traditional side, via a visit to the beautiful and serene canals of Zhujiajiao Ancient Water Town.

You will then explore the winding alleyways and tree-lined avenues of the Former French Concession, followed by a visit to the scenic grounds of Yuyuan Garden.

To wrap up the day, you'll take a stroll along the riverside promenade of the Bund. The Bund side of the river is lined with European-style buildings that have been standing for over a hundred years. Across the river you'll catch amazing views of Shanghai's iconic skyline made up of ultra-modern skyscrapers, the perfect conclusion to a whirlwind tour of this booming metropolis.

Don't hesitate to ask your travel agent if you'd like to modify any part of this itinerary, as each tour package is entirely customizable.
