Our clients visiting Shanghai Bund
This 6 days' China private tour will literally start from today and your first destination is Shanghai Museum. Selected exhibits collected throughout China, such as bronze wares, potteries, and paintings, will reveal the past of this ancient oriental country in front of you. After that, we will drive you to the Yu Garden. This peaceful garden is like an elaborately designed bonsai placed in a busy bazaar. At noon, we will arrange an a la carte lunch at a famed restaurant and the value is CNY150 per person which is included in our price. Your guide will recommend local special dishes for you.

In local people's mind, tales of the Bund are exactly the stories of Shanghai City. In the afternoon, the guide will take you to the western bank of Huangpu River to explore the iconic Bund, which is clustered with 52 European-style buildings of 1920s. On its opposite is Lujiazui Financial & Trade Center with towering modern skyscrapers. The flowing Huangpu River is like a boundary line dividing the past and present of Shanghai. We will arrange a one-hour Huangpu River cruise for you to view the scenery on both sides.

After that, we will transfer you to an art block - Tianzifang, brimming with distinctive workshops and stores. Here you can take a sip of the cultural flavor of the old Shanghai. If you want to have a rest, you may have a cup of coffee in a comfortable bar. When today's tour is over, we will drive you back to the hotel.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, a la carte lunch
Day 3 Shanghai - Beijing
Free time in the morning. High-speed train to Beijing. Railway station-hotel transfer. (B)
After a full itinerary on the previous day, you may have a good rest this morning. Or, you can further explore this city on your own. In the afternoon, you will take a high speed train to Beijing. Your guide will accompany you to the railway station and help you board the train. After 5-6 hours' trip, you will arrive in Beijing. Your guide of the following Beijing tour will pick you up at the railway station and escort you to the hotel.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Day 4 Beijing
Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, A la carte lunch, Summer Palace. (B+L)
Badaling Great Wall, Beijing
Your private Beijing tour will start from the center of the city, Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. Tiananmen Square is the world's largest square in downtown area. To its north is the Forbidden City, the living place of 24 emperors in history. With the description of your guide, you can easily imagine the everyday life of the royal family. Then, the guide will take you to a nice restaurant and treat you with traditional Chinese cuisines. The a la carte lunch costs CNY150 per person and is included in our price.

Having visited the dainty private Yuyuan Garden in Shanghai, this afternoon, we will drive you to the Summer Palace, which is a grand summer resort of the royal family. Different from the tiny ponds and exquisite rockeries in the Yuyuan Garden, which can only be viewed, in the Summer Palace, you can take a boat in the large mirror-like Kunming Lake, climb up the Longevity Hill, and stroll along the Long Corridor to feel the magnificence of this imperial garden.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, a la carte lunch
Day 5 Beijing
Badaling Great Wall, Bird's Nest (drive by), Temple of Heaven. (B)
Forbidden City, Beijing
Today, we will take you to the Badaling Great Wall, which has received numerous visitors from home and abroad, including more than 400 world's leaders. Climbing the Great Wall takes a great effort. Please wear something comfortable and pack some snacks for energy-replenishing. You may have lunch around Badaling on your own, and your guide is willing to give you some suggestions.

In the afternoon, we arrange you a visit to the Temple of Heaven. On the way back, you will view the Olympic National Stadium (Bird's Nest) and National Aquatics Center (Water Cube) in a distance. The Temple of Heaven was the sacrificial altar for emperors to pray for the blessings of the God. But now, the park of the temple is a great place to immerse in local people's leisure life. Many citizens will gather here to exercise, chat, and dance.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast

I am traveling to the US with a Philippine Passport with flight itinerary below:
MNL to PVG Terminal 1 via China Eastern
5 hour layover in PVG
PVG Terminal 2 to EWR via United Air

Question:
1 ) Do I need to retrieve my luggage in PVG and check in again, immigration etc? Is there an airside transfer between terminals?
2 ) Do I need to apply for a transit visa?

Thanks!

Hi Kookie,
I'm afraid you have to recheck in your luggage because you take two different airlines. And there is an airside transfer between terminal. You don't need to apply for a visa and you are eligible for 24 hours visa free policy.

Oh, December is a good time to visit this city. You are advised to stay at a hotel nearby East Nanjing Road. The surrounding transportation is quite convenient that you can easily access to major scenic areas. And it is closed to People's Square and the Bund. Hope helpful!

The distance between these two places is around 31 kilometers. From your hotel, you are suggested to take a taxi to Xujiahui Metro Station first. Then transfer to metro line 11 to Disneyland Resort. After arriving, walk southeast around 650 meters to find the entrance.

Well, I suggest you take subway considering the morning rush hours and traffic jam, although shuttle bus line 5 will be direct alternative. Take line 2 to People's Square and leave from exit 14. Walk east for 5min or so and find your hotel. The whole day costs CNY7.

Subway + taxi is recommended. You can take line 2 to Science & Technology Museum, and then take a taxi to your destination.
