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), the Yu Garden was once a private garden owned by a court official and then open to the public in 1961. It has become an internationally recognized historical site now and some people even consider it a jewel of the classical gardens along the southern Yangtze River. The buildings in the architectural style of the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911) are worthy of close appreciation. Here you will also see the clear ponds, magnificent rockeries and lush plants harmoniously blend together, which creates a natural atmosphere throughout the garden.

    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!
