Day01 Shanghai
Shanghai Bund
Our guide and driver will pick you up at the lobby of your hotel at 09:00. Today you will have a downtown exploration to some must-see attractions. Firstly we transfer you to visit the Urban Planning Exhibition Hall, which shows detailed information of the past, present and future of Shanghai in a quite interesting way. It is good to start the trip here as you may get an overview understanding of the city before you explore further. After that, go deeper to learn more by visiting Shanghai Museum, a different style than Urban Planning Exhibition Hall that presents you the profound history and culture of China. Lunch is arranged by yourself. In the afternoon, have a relaxing time rambling in the beautiful Yu Garden and then take some time to explore the lively Yuyuan market. After that you will come to the Bund area which is the quintessential of Shanghai. Finally, we will drive you back to your hotel, or you may enjoy your own time at Nanjing Road that is very close by.

Day02 Shanghai
Zhujiajiao Ancient Town
Today we will take a side trip away from the bustling city to visit the quaint and elegant Zhujiajiao Water Town. It would be quite a different experience to see the old and ancient part of China. In the morning, our guide and driver will meet you at the hotel lobby. Drive for about one hour to reach the water town, where you may take time to wander through the narrow streets, climb over the various bridges, discover interesting handmade articles from the street shops and appreciate the traditional architecture of the houses. Lunch is arranged by yourself. You may either try some local food in the water town, or have lunch at a decent restaurant after you return to downtown Shanghai. In the afternoon, you will visit the Jade Buddha Temple and Tianzifang art and cultural street as the conclusion of your private two-day trip.

Shanghai, Hanzhou and suzhou
Hi, I will be arriving at Shanghai Pudong Airport around 6+am early in the morning. Should I travel to Hanzhou/Suzhou first or will it be better if I stay in Shanghai for a night and travel to Hanzhou/suzhou the next day?

I plan to stay near Langao road station. Should I take the bullet train from Shanghai Railway station or Hongqiao station?

Thank you.

Upon arrival at Shanghai Pudong Airport, you can either travel to Hangzhou/ Suzhou directly or have a one day tour in Shanghai first and then head for Hangzhou/Suzhou the next day.

If you go to Suzhou from Shanghai, you can either take the high speed train from Shanghai Railway Station or Hongqiao Railway Station. However, Shanghai Railway Station is nearer. From Langao road station, you may take Subway Line 7 to Zhenping Road Station, then transfer to Line 4 to get to the train station. The taxi fare is only around CNY 20.

If you go to Hangzhou from Shanghai, you are suggested to take the train from Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station. You can take Subway Line 7 at Langao Subway Station and get off at Jingansi Station, then transfer to Line 2 which will take you to the Hongqiao Railway Station directly. The taxi fare is about CNY 50.
