Tour Highlights
Shanghai Museum
Shanghai Museum, covering an area of 40,000 square meters (47,840 square yards), is a huge treasure house of ancient Chinese arts. It has 12 themed showrooms displaying the abundant and exquisite exhibits, including varied bronze wares, ceramics, calligraphy works, jade wares, and paintings.
Yu Garden
Occupying an area of over 20,000 square meters (24,000 square yards), Yu Garden was once a private garden owned by a court official and has become an internationally recognized historical site; some even consider it a jewel of the classical gardens along the southern Yangtze River. Buildings in the architectural style of the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368 - 1911) are worthy of close appreciation. Here you will see, clear ponds, bizarre rockeries and lush plants harmoniously blending to create a natural atmosphere throughout the garden.

In this area, there are 52 exotic and classic buildings for people to appreciate.

Cruising on the Huangpu River will provide you with a superb experience of viewing the Bund, enjoying the beauty of the river and taking marvelous photos of the high-rise architectural complex of Pudong from a different perspective.

    I spent the Shanghai day tour with my parents. We always traveled together and booked many tours with different companies. However, the service of this Shanghai day tour was the best I had ever enjoyed. I looked forward to another tour with TravelChinaGuide!

    The Shanghai day tour was a good route for a family. You can learn Chinese culture and history in the Shanghai Museum and enjoy the charming view of the Huangpu River and the Bund. The itinerary is well arranged and the places you visit are very representative. Old people and children won’t get too tired or can't keep up with the schedule. Highly recommended!
