Day 1 Arrival in Shanghai
Sincere greetings & airport-hotel transfer. The Bund and Huangpu River cruise.
Your guide and driver will pick you up from Shanghai Airport according to your flight schedule and then transfer you to check into the well-selected hotel in downtown area.

After a short break, your Shanghai 3 days tour will start from a one-hour cruise tour on the Huangpu River. Along both banks of the river scatter many landmark buildings, which reveal the past, present and future of the city. In addition, two suspension bridges, the Yangpu Bridge and the Nanpu Bridge, look like two dragons crouching across the river. With the Oriental Pearl TV Tower encompassed under their arches, the three form a picture of 'Two Dragons Playing a Ball', which is a kind of auspicious festive decorative pattern. All these make the Huangpu River Cruise an excellent way to explore the city's history, culture and charming landscape. After the cruise, you could also stroll along the Bund freely to appreciate the wonderful scene of this international metropolis.

Your 3 days Shanghai tour today will begin with a visit to the Shanghai Museum, which is renowned for its large collections of Chinese ancient artworks. The exhibition building has a round top and a square base, resembling a Ding, a tripod ancient bronze vessel and representing the old Chinese philosophy 'the sky is round and the earth is square'. Later, you will proceed to the Yu Garden, also called 'the Eastern Garden', a typical classical garden in southern China. The finely structured pavilions, winding cloisters, decorated walls and crystal pond together make the garden a charming and tranquil land in the bustling city.

In the afternoon, you will ascend to the 100th storey of the Shanghai World Financial Center, where you could look straight forward to the sharp roof of the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, experience the roof of the Jinmao Tower at your feet and have a bird's eye view of the whole city. Then, you will be accompanied to visit Xin Tian Di, a former neighborhood of old Shanghai which has been renewed as a fashionable pedestrian street featuring fine restaurants, upscale clubs and boutiques.

    I was very satisfied with the 3 days Shanghai tour. The itinerary was great and the hotel was luxurious. The Shanghai Museum was my favorite. It had a round top and a square base. The guide told me that the exterior design symbolized the ancient idea of a round heaven and a square land. And the ancient ceramics collection with different paintings and shapes from various dynasties impressed me most. I learned a lot about Chinese ancient artwork.

    I took my parents and children to travel together. The schedule was reasonable but not tiring.
    The hotels were clean and luxurious. We had a good time. It was a good Shanghai 3 days tour.

    I traveled to Shanghai with my parents. There was no extra charge. The itinerary was exactly as described and the accommodation was excellent. My parents couldn't rest well at the beginning because they didn't know how to adjust the jet lag. But fortunately, the guide helped them and her service attitude was very good. When visiting scenic spots, she explained in detail and left plenty of free time. A sweet 3 days Shanghai tour!

    We visited many places in three days. Different sights of Shanghai were uncovered before my eyes. It was busy and bustling in the Bund and the Huangpu River and there were also some quiet places in Zhujiajiao Water Town and Yuyuan Garden. Shanghai World Financial Center made me see the future of Shanghai and the old Shanghai was hid in the Xin Tian Di. It was a very wonderful 3 days Shanghai tour!

    Because I didn’t travel to Shanghai during Chinese holidays, there were not many people in the scenic spots. So I could clearly appreciate every scenic spot and listen to the guide. It was also very convenient to avoid queuing. I highly recommend Huangpu River cruise and Shanghai World Financial Center to you. You can see Shanghai from different perspectives and directions. It was a great 3 days Shanghai tour!

    A nice 3 days Shanghai tour! Shanghai was an international metropolis. The short cruise on Huangpu River was a great experience and I saw the entire Shanghai from a different aspect. It was memorable!
