In the late autumn, the green and yellow leaves add more beauty to the Bund, making it a more appealing place to visit in Shanghai in November. Accompanied by the brisk air from the Huangpu River, tourists can comfortably enjoy a range of exotic buildings which were constructed from late 19th to early 20th century. Moreover, standing on the Bund, tourists can have a clear view of the skyscrapers at Lujiazui - the other side of the Huangpu River. Interestingly, many local people usually do exercising here, which is a good opportunity for tourists to know about their lifestyle.

If you travel to Shanghai in November, don’t forget to pay a visit to the beautiful plane trees along the Sinan Road. Every autumn, this road is covered with a thick layer of golden plane leaves. The view is so pretty that the municipality even asked the sanitation workers not to sweep those leaves away, in order to keep the autumn scenery here for as long as possible. In fact, Sinan Road was built in 1912 and belonged to the Former French Concession at that time. That’s why there are many western-styled garden villas along it. So, apart from the natural scenery, tourists can feel the cultural charm as well.
Though made up of narrow and crooked alleys, Tianzifang boasts various scenic spots, ranging from traditional Shikumen Residence to good-looking boutiques, from art galleries and creative studios to open-air cafes and restaurants. Moreover, it is a commonplace here to watch artists painting or making clay figures on site. Apparently, Tianzifang is full of artsy atmosphere providing all travel needs, thus always a good choice for those who visit Shanghai in November.
