Day01 Arrival in Shanghai
Our guide will meet you outside the customs of the airport and transfer you to check in the hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to explore the city.
Day02 Shanghai
Huangpu River cruise
Your private journey begins with a visit to Shanghai Museum, a large-scale ancient Chinese art museum. The museum houses over 120,000 pieces of cultural relics, especially ancient artworks. After that, the trip will be extended to the Yuyuan Garden, a classical garden initially built by an official to satisfy his old parents over 400 years ago. The Nine-Turnings Bridge and a pavilion in the middle of the pond are the highlights of the garden. In the afternoon, you will head to the Bund area to take a short but exciting cruise tour on the Huangpu River. It is an excellent way to unveil the two faces of the city. The historical city on the west bank boasts colonial legacies and a modern developed city on the east bank has lots of skyscrapers. When the cruise ends, free time will be left for you to explore the Bund and then visit an old street.
Day03 Shanghai - Water Town - Shanghai
Ancient water town
This morning, you will ascend the 100-storey of Shanghai World Financial Center, where you could have a bird's eye view of the scenery along the Huangpu River, look straight forward to the sharp roof of the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and experience the roof of Jinmao Tower under your feet. After that, we will drive you to Zhujiajiao, an ancient water town beseting in lakes and mountains. The unique old bridges, well-structured courtyards and calm rivers and shy willows, all make the town a land of antiquity, leisure and tranquility. 

Note: If you are not interested in the above arranged day trip, we still have the following 5 options for you to choose. If you choose from option 1 to 4, the price keeps the same, while for options 5, we will quote the price for you upon your enquiry. 

Option 1: We will transfer you to visit Zhouzhuang, the No. 1 Water Town of the country. You will enjoy the unique water lanes, stone bridges, Family Shen's Compound and the ancient buildings along the riverside.

Option 2: Take a full day sightseeing to visit Xitang Water Town, which is level, densely distributed with rivers. Inside the town, you can find many well preserved architecture groups constructed during Ming and Qing dynasties.

Options 3: Drive to visit the more than one thousand year old Tongli Water town. The various styles of stone bridges, old residential houses and the rich cultural history in the town attract the visitors all over the world.

Option 4: Spend the whole day to visit water town Luzhi, famed as Venice of the East.

Option 5: Visit the water town Wuzhen, which possesses a history of over 2,000 years. Explore the town leisurely to visit the 'Bridge within a Bridge', alleys, canals and traditional houses.
