Description

Make the most of even a one-day stop in Shanghai with a private shore excursion complete with local guide and driver. This fully customizable tour is adjustable to suit your interests but typically includes: The Bund area with the Splendid river view of the modern skyscrapers ( Oriental pearl TV tower, Shanghai tower, Jinao tower), Old Town bazaar and classic Ming dynasty Garden, People's Square, Jade Buddha Temple, and the French Concession, both Fuxing Park and Xintiandi and even more

As this is a private shore excursion, the schedule, duration, and activities are entirely up to you. However, the most popular itinerary begins with a pickup at Shanghai cruise terminal and starts with a visit to the city’s former French Concession.

Here, stop at Fuxing Park, where the French-style gardens pay homage to the park’s colonial beginnings,in the morning, the park offers a fantastic introduction to traditional Shanghai life as locals gather here to enjoy activities such as calligraphy, singing, and even ballroom dancing. Feel free to join in a dance if you wish!

Then, let your guide lead you through the French Concession, once the center of colonial life, and now the hottest and hippest neighborhood in Shanghai.

Hop back in your private vehicle and drive on to People’s Square, known as the heart of Shanghai. Besides being a great place to observe locals going about their daily life, the square is home to the famous Marriage Market during weekends, when local parents come to find a boyfriend or girlfriend for their single children.

If it's raining, you may wish to enjoy the alternative of either a visit to the world-class Shanghai Museum, with its fantastic selection of historic artefacts, or the fascinating Shanghai Urban Planning Museum (both with entrance fees at own expense).

For lunch, stop at a local restaurant to discover classic Shanghainese cuisine. Enjoy xiaolongbao soup dumplings, Shanghai-style noodles, or meat, fish, and vegetable dishes, washed down with plenty of tea.

Next, see more local life as you explore Shanghai's Old Town area. Wander through its narrow alleyways and colorful markets, and if you wish, shop for tea, antiques, Chinese seals, souvenirs, or even everyday items like clothes and chopsticks.

No visit to Shanghai would be complete without a stroll along The Bund or the Riverside Promenade (Binjiang Da Dao) that locals describe as a free museum of architecture for the varied styles on display.

As you enjoy the splendid views of the colonial-era architecture and the dramatic contemporary skyline across the River Huangpu, your guide will explain Shanghai’s international history.

  • Relaxing Huangpu River Cruise
