From $164 per personFree Inquiry
Day 1 Shanghai
Yu Garden
Yu Garden
Our guide and driver will pick you up at the lobby of your hotel at 09:00. Today you will have a downtown exploration to some must-see attractions. Firstly we transfer you to visit the Urban Planning Exhibition Hall, which shows detailed information of the past, present and future of Shanghai in a quite interesting way. It is good to start your Shanghai 2 days tour here as you may get an overview understanding of the city before you explore further. After that, go deeper to learn more by visiting Shanghai Museum, a different style than Urban Planning Exhibition Hall that presents you the profound history and culture of China.

In the afternoon, have a relaxing time rambling in the beautiful Yu Garden and then take some time to explore the lively Yuyuan market. After that you will come to the Bund area which is the quintessential of this Shanghai 2 day itinerary. Located on the bank of Huangpu River, travelers come to the Bund not only for the charming riverside scenery, but the unique western and gothic architectures also deserve a look. We will set aside some free time for you to stroll around the Bund and take some photos. Finally, we will drive you back to your hotel, or you may enjoy your own time at Nanjing Road that is very close by.
Day 2 Shanghai
Zhujiajiao Water Town
Zhujiajiao Water Town
Today we will take a side trip away from the bustling city to visit the quaint and elegant Zhujiajiao Water Town. It would be quite a different experience to see the old and ancient part of China. In the morning, our guide and driver will meet you at the hotel lobby. Drive for about one hour to reach the water town, where you may take time to wander through the narrow streets, climb over the various bridges, discover interesting handmade articles from the street shops and appreciate the traditional architecture of the houses. Lunch is arranged by yourself. You may either try some local food in the water town, or have lunch at a decent restaurant after you return to downtown Shanghai.

In the afternoon, drive to the Jade Buddha Temple to see the sitting Buddha and reclining Buddha covered with jade. At last, you will visit the bustling Tianzifang art and cultural street as the conclusion of your private Shanghai itinerary 2 days.
 Friendly Tips

China has a wide range of food selections from street food to fine dining and the price is quite fair. We leave the lunch and dinner on your own so that you could find more authentic local food that caters to your taste. Our guide is ready to offer you suggestions.

    Excellent 2 days. Lee was knowledgeable but could increase his language skills. He was otherwise timely, polite and tried very hard in all aspects.

    The whole journey, accommodation and catering of the 2 days Shanghai tour were fully consistent with the introduction on websites. The travel experience exceeded my expectations. The guide was very careful and actively assisted in adjusting when the weather changed and the group members didn’t feel well. The detailed introduction made me better experience the scenery of Shanghai and its interesting culture. Her excellent work obtained unanimous recognition from us. I wished that I could have her again when I went to Shanghai next time! ... More

    I enjoyed the Shanghai 2 days tour. The itinerary was very good. The guide explained carefully all the way and took the initiative to take photos of us at each scenic spot. Besides, she also reminded everyone of traffic safety and told us about the specialties and famous snacks in Shanghai. I bought some gifts in Zhujiajiao Water Town for my parents and I will take them to Shanghai next time.
