Shanghai Tour FAQs

What are the things to do in Shanghai?
Shanghai, one of the world's most vibrant metropolises where tradition mixes with modernity and east meets west, always has something to offer its visitors. Walking leisurely along the famous Bund, experiencing the country's history at the city's museum, admiring the beautiful scenery of Yuyuan Garden and taking in the views on a Huangpu River cruise are the essential things to do for most travelers. These usually make up a best full day visit.

If you have plenty of time, you may schedule another day to include the World Financial Center or Shanghai Tower to enjoy the amazing skyline of the city, as well as Zhujiajiao, an ancient water town in the suburb. Alternatively, a full day to one of the more distant ancient water towns such as Zhouzhuang or Tongli is quite a good idea. Hailed as the "Oriental Paris", the city is also a shopping paradise that popular with a great many tourists.
How many airports are there in Shanghai? Which one should I choose to book my flight?
The city has two airports – Pudong International Airport (PVG) and Hongqiao International Airport (SHA). If you are going to book a domestic flight, Hongqiao airport should be your first choice since it is much closer to the downtown area. If you want to book an international flight, Pudong Airport has a wider choice of flights.
I've heard there are several water towns near Shanghai. Which one should I choose for a day trip?
There are eight ancient water towns with somewhat similar landscapes near the city. The tranquil and less-touristy Xitang and Tongli give visitors a better experience. Both of them are around 1.5 hours drive. However, if you like a more bustling atmosphere, the more developed Zhouzhuang or Wuzhen, still hold irresistible charms and captivate tourists from around the world.
Can you tell me which tower would be the best to visit, Oriental Pearl TV Tower, World Financial Center, Jin Mao Tower or Shanghai Tower?
Either Shanghai Tower or the World Financial Center is a good option. As the tallest and second tallest skyscrapers in China, they both offer amazing city views with symbolic landmarks including the neighboring Jin Mao Tower and the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. For a thrill, the World Financial Center has a transparent glass floor at F100 for visitors to walk on and look down to the ground below.
I will stay in Shanghai for a few days. Which neighboring city can I visit and come back in the same day?
You can take a private day trip to Suzhou or Hangzhou by a high-speed train. The one way train journey to Suzhou takes only about 30 minutes, and around 1 hour to Hangzhou.

Both Suzhou and Hangzhou are quite different from the hustle and bustle of Shanghai. Suzhou is known for its exquisite classical gardens, where you can enjoy a charming natural beauty, harmonious old buildings and rich local culture. Hangzhou, nicknamed “heaven on earth”, boasts great natural beauty and cultural relics. You will definitely be struck by the enchanting scenery of the West Lake, which has been listed as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO since 2011. No matter which of the two you visit, you won't be disappointed.
Under the 144-hour visa-free transit, can I visit other cities in addition to Shanghai?
Under the 144-hour visa free transit, you can also travel around the eastern coastal cities in Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces, but no other locations. More specifically, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Nanjing, and water towns like Wuzhen or Tongli are all great places for you to enjoy more fun.
Is it possible to take the maglev train to the airport instead of your private car?

I'm very interested in visiting the Disneyland. Can I add it into your private Shanghai tour?
The Disneyland is indeed an incredibly happy place, and you can certainly add it to any of our Shanghai local tour itineraries.
