Welcome to join our Shanghai day trip in mini group. In the morning, your professional English-speaking guide will greet you in the lobby of your hotel at the appointed time. He/she will call you to confirm the exact meeting time before 20:00 on the day before. Please get prepared and begin your full day journey with comfortable clothes and shoes.

Your first stop today is the square of the Oriental Pearl Tower in Pudong New Area. Your guide will introduce this landmark building to you and leave you 30 minutes' free time to explore at your leisurely pace in the square and take some great photos. As the tower is always densely visited by domestic travelers, so the lining up inside usually takes 40 minutes to 1 hour, or even longer. Nice views can also be obtained if you tour around the square.

Don't worry that you will miss the other distinctive skyscrapers in Pudong. Your guide and driver will drive you around the area and make photo stops for you in Shanghai Tower and the World Financial Center. Shanghai Tower ranks as China's tallest building and second only to the world. You will be surely amazed by their unique and majestic appearances.
