In the morning meet your friendly and informative tour guide in the hotel lobby(downtown only)and start your tour with the company of your guide.

Firstly, you will move to Lujiazui Financial Trade Zone for Jinmao Tower which was designed by the Chicago firm of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) is an 88-story landmark skyscraper in Lujiazui Financial Trade Zone in Shanghai.Its postmodern form, whose complexity rises as it ascends, draws on traditional Chinese architecture such as the tiered pagoda, gently stepping back to create a rhythmic pattern as it rises.

Secondly your guide will show you around Shanghai Binjiang Avenue built in 1997 and located at the east bank of Huangpu River and it's praised as the new Bund of Pudong. It integrates sightseeing, leisure and relaxation, focusing on the urban ecological environment and functions.Walking on the broad Binjiang Avenue,overlooking the panorama of the Bund, listening to the melodious whistle on the Huangpu River, is a rare quiet and comfortable life in the heart of the metropolis.

Thirdly you will be guided to visit Jade Buddha Temple which is a famous Buddhist temple in Shanghai. As with many modern Chinese Buddhist temples, the current temple draws from both the Pure Land and Chan traditions of Mahayana Buddhism. It was founded in 1882 with two jade Buddha statues (one sitting and one reclining)imported to Shanghai from Burma by sea.

Shanghai Silk Museum follows after lunch,covering an area of 6000 square meters,it is located in Huangpu District and aims to promote the development of Chinese silk culture and industry.China is the world's largest silk producer. The vast majority of Chinese silk originates from the mulberry silkworms. 

The Bund comes after the Silk Museum and it is a waterfront area located at the west bank of the Huangpu Rive in central Shanghai. The area centers on a section of Zhongshan Road within the former Shanghai International Settlement, which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River in the eastern part of Huangpu District. The area along the river faces the modern skyscrapers of Lujiazui in the Pudong District and some buildings there display predominantly Romanesque Revival, Gothic Revival, Renaissance Revival, Baroque Revival, Neo-Classical or Beaux-Arts styles, and a number in Art Deco style.

Located to the southwest of the Bund, Xintiandi is a very developed district which was within the territory of French Concession and composed of an area of reconstituted traditional mid-19th century shikumen ("stone gate") houses on narrow alleys, some adjoining houses which now serve as book stores, cafes and restaurants, and shopping malls. Most of the cafes and restaurants feature both indoor and outdoor seating.Xintiandi also has the site of the first congress of the Communist Party of China.

Back to hotel after all the activities listed in the itinerary and end of the service.
