Visit Jade Buddha Temple
Jade Buddha Temple practices both the Pure Land and Chan traditions of Mahayana Buddhism. It was founded in 1882 with two Jade Buddha statues imported to Shanghai from Burma by sea. These were a sitting Buddha (1.95 meters tall, 3 tonnes), and a smaller reclining Buddha representing the Buddha's death. Destroyed and then abandoned after 1911, Jade Buddha Temple were reconstructed on the same site in 1928. The temple now also contains a much larger reclining Buddha made of marble, donated from Singapore.

Visit Yuyuan Garden & Shopping at Chenghuangmiao Market
Yuyuan is the most famous garden located in the heart of Shanghai's Old City. The garden was constructed in 1577 by a government officer of the Ming Dynasty(1368-1644) named Pan Yunduan. It took him almost 20 years to construct the garden in an attempt to please his parents for them to enjoy a tranquil and happy time in their high ages. Yuyuan Garden is a maze of pavilions, elaborate rockeries, arched bridges, and goldfish ponds, all encircled by an undulating dragon wall. Occupying an area of 20,000 square meters (about five acres), it nevertheless appears quite expansive, with room for 30 pavilions. Chenghuangmiao is a nice place built in typical Chinese architecture style with lots of shops, bars and restaurants.

Lunch at Your Own Expense
Please feel free to ask your guide for suggestions and recommendations

Visit the Oriental Pearl TV Tower (Second Sphere, 263 Meters High)
The Oriental Pearl TV Tower is located at the tip of Lujiazui in the Pudong district by Huangpu River, opposite the Bund, makes it a distinct landmark in Shanghai. This 468 meters high (1,536 feet) tower is the world's third tallest TV and radio tower surpassed in height only by towers in Toronto and Moscow. However, even more alluring than its height is the tower's unique architectural design that makes the Oriental Pearl TV Tower one of the most attractive places anywhere. The entire structure rests on rich green grassland and gives the appearance of pearls shining on a jade plate. When viewed from the Bund at night, the tower's three-dimensional lighting makes it a delight of brilliant color.

Visit The Bund
The Bund refers to Shanghai's famous waterfront stretching for 1.6km (1 mile) along the west shore of the Huangpu River. Once a muddy towpath for boats along the river, the Bund was where the foreign powers that entered Shanghai after the Opium War of 1842 erected their distinct Western-style banks and trading houses. From here, Shanghai grew into Asia's leading city in the 1920s and 1930s, a cosmopolitan and thriving commercial and financial center. Many of the awesome colonial structures you see today date from that prosperous time and have become an indelible part of Shanghai's cityscape. The colonial-era buildings that highlight the Bund include the former British Consulate, Customs House, former HSBC Building (the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation), former Shanghai Club (now the Waldorf Astoria Hotel), and the Peace Hotel.

Shopping at Nanjing Road
The 3.4-mile-long Nanjing Road starts at the Bund in the east and it is the main shopping street of Shanghai and one of the busiest shopping streets in the world. As a result of the Opium War (1839-1842), Shanghai was forced to open to the West as a port. Importing large quantities of foreign goods, it became the earliest shopping street in Shanghai. Over time, Nanjing Road has been restructured, undergoing significant change. For shopping convenience, its eastern end has an all-weather pedestrian arcade. Today over 600 businesses on Nanjing road offer countless famous brands, superior quality, and new fashions. KFC, McDonald's, Pizza Hut, and other world-famous food vendors line both sides of the street. Upscale stores include Tiffany, Mont Blanc, and Dunhill.

Huangpu River Cruise
The Huangpu River is a 113 kilometers long river flowing through Shanghai. It is the last significant tributary of the Yangtze before it empties into the East China Sea. Huangpu River is Shanghai's shipping artery both to the East China Sea and to the mouth of the Yangtze River, which the Huangpu joins 29km (18 miles) north of downtown Shanghai. It has also become a demarcating line between two Shanghais, east and west, past and future. On its western shore, the colonial landmarks of the Bund serve as a reminder of Shanghai's 19th-century struggle to reclaim a waterfront from the bogs of Huangpu River; on the eastern shore, the steel-and-glass skyscrapers of the Pudong New Area point to a burgeoning financial empire of the future. Besides offering a privileged view of the bridges that span the Huangpu River, the cruise boats also offer an excellent view of the famous colonial-era buildings that make up the Bund, buildings such as the Peace Hotel with its unique pyramid roof in blazing green and the Customs House with its large clock tower, the glittering skyscrapers on the eastern shore of Pudong, and the unceasing river traffic.

Transfer Back to Your Hotel
After Huangpu River cruise, your private guide and driver will transfer you back to your hotel.

Customer Reviews

Shanghai Private Day Trip Review by Kora Ross
This was a super tour. We saw all the main tourist attractions in Shanghai in one day. Ella, our tour guide is the best tour guide I've ever had. Ella had so much energy and enthusiasm. She was informative, knowledgeable and just so much fun. This really made our trip in Shanghai. Ella had no problem taking loads of photos of us. I'd highly recommend this to anyone. When I'm back in Shanghai I'll definitely be meeting up with Ella. Having a driver was very useful as you were not too tired from all the walking.
