Quickly becoming one of the top destination spots for tourists around the world, Shanghai is rich in culture in more ways than one. Being the largest and most developed city in Mainland China, nothing holds a candle to what Shanghai can offer.
It’s no surprise that Shanghai is a popular destination spot for tourists considering what all it has to offer, including amazing views like the one above.
Shanghai is separated by the HuangpuRiver, dividing the city into two districts: Puxi being the older district and Pudong being the site for new high-rise development.
The city has a unique mix of Eastern and Western culture, everything from European-style Tudor buildings to landmarks that resemble those in New York to traditional Chinese houses.
The weather can be quite humid during the summer months, so it is advised that you bring several changes of clothing.
If you’re planning on staying a few days, the Shanghai Jiaotong Card is the easiest way to get around. The card can be loaded with money and can be used on any metro, bus, or taxi, which saves the hassle of buying so many tickets.
Shanghai is becoming a major cruise ship port with ships sailing from there on a weekly basis throughout the year. A few cruise lines actively sailing into Shanghai are Oceana, Celebrity, Princess, RCCL, Seaborne, Holland America and Cost.
A few “must-see” spots that are unique to Shanghai are the Yuyuan Gardens, the Oriental Pearl Tower, and the Shanghai Museum. The Zhujiajiao Water Town is also popular among tourists for its ancient history, quaint shops, and local restaurants.
For those interested in shopping while in Shanghai, head to the French Concession Streets Xinle Lu, Changle Lu, and Anfu Lu starting from east of Shaanxi Lu. This area bustles with small boutiques full of clothing and accessories, for anyone looking for the latest fashions.
