A Snippet Shanghai

A Snippet of Shanghai…and it is spectacular! 

Thinking of visiting Shanghai?? We have amalgamated all the must sees and best experiences this amazing place has to offer!

Let’s start at the very beginning… A very good place to start. All of our Chinese tours now come with private door-to-door UK airport transfers!


Jade Buddha Temple – One of the few working monasteries in the city.

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 imported to Shanghai from Burma by sea. The temple now also contains a much larger reclining Buddha made of marble, donated from Singapore, and visitors may mistake this larger sculpture for the original, smaller piece. A spectacular once in a lifetime sight!

Bund – Take a walk along Shanghai’s famous waterfront.

The area centres on a section of Zhongshan Road (East-1 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. This is one not to miss!!

Huangpu River – The Huangpu is the largest river in Shanghai, with Suzhou Creek being its major tributary. It is on average 400 metres (1,312 feet) wide and 9 metres (30 feet) deep. It divides the city into two regions. A sight to behold!

Yuyuan Garden – This spectacular garden occupies an area of 20,000 square meters (about five acres). However, the small size is not a representative of the attractions of the garden. The pavilions, halls, rockeries, ponds and cloisters all have unique characteristics. There are six main scenic areas here: Sansui Hall, Wanhua Chamber, Dianchun Hall, Huijing Hall, Yuhua Hall and the Inner Garden. Each area features several scenic spots within its beautiful borders.

Old Town –  Enchanting… A place of peace and comfort in the heart of bustling Shanghai, dating back to the Ming Dynasty.

Shanghai Museum –  Possessing a collection of over 120,000 precious and fabulous works of art.

State Shanghai Acrobatic show – Chinese Acrobatics started from Warring States Period. By the time of the Han Dynasty, the acrobatic art further developed in content and variety. In the Tang Dynasty, the number of acrobats increased enormously and their performing skills improved a great deal. Now, Chinese acrobatics can also be called a national art. The acrobatics in Shanghai is something that visitors to the city will not want to miss

China’s garden city – Not far from Shanghai and well worth the travel time! Known as the ‘Oriental Venice’, renowned for its canals, arched stone bridges and silk products.

So that’s it…a snippet of Shanghai! Whether you spend the whole day exploring the winding alleys of the Old Town, the famous Shanghai Museum, or indulge in some last-minute shopping and experience some local cuisine Shanghai is a wonderful place to visit any time of the year for any excuse you can find!
