LOCAL ESSENTIALS

LOCAL
RECOMMENDATIONS

THE PERFECT DAY

MORNING

Wake up early and jogging on the riverside terrace opposite to the hotel. Relax yourself and take a breath of fresh air, and after an hour you should feel quite revitalised. Then, take a taxi to Yuyuan Garden and taste some Chinese tea to completely detoxify your body. Sit and sip on the 2nd floor of the teahouse by the 9-curves bridge in Yuyuan Garden and watch life go by. Then you can walk along the old street, where Chinese art, souvenirs, paintings, paper cuttings, ancient seal carvings and other art are available amidst Ancient Chinese architecture. Have a true local experience by bargaining with vendors or get a carving of your Chinese name.

AFTERNOON

Xintiandi is an area of Shanghai that teems with life. You will find a full range of restaurants, bars and shops located in authentic 'Shikumen' architecture. You can enjoy lunch from a large and varied choice of restaurants in these wonderful old buildings. A 30 minutes walk from Xintiandi is the Shanghai Museum where you will find the history and treasures of China, a must for all visitors fond of Chinese history. Having seen the past, just go next door to see the extraordinary plans for this city's future at the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Centre. It's spectacular to see the plans, and almost comforting, as this city is growing so fast that it sometimes feels like it has a life of its own.

EVENING

Shanghai is an incredible but hectic city, so take the evening to relax. Enjoy a fantastic dinner in one of the a lot of restaurants on the Bund, take in the view of the Huangpu river and see the fiery sunset that somehow feels so appropriate; Shanghai is a city with so much energy you would believe it could burn out the sun. If you feel infatuated with this impressive stretch, take a cruise down the river, see the wonderful architecture from a distance and feel the city regenerating for tomorrow.

WHAT TO PACK

Hotel address and telephone number

Taxi drivers are not familiar with the English pronunciation for the hotels in Shanghai. Try to get the address in Chinese characters beforehand or at least the hotel telephone number so you can ask the operator to tell the taxi drivers where to go. To avoid all of that hassle, it is best to book a pick up service.


City Map

You can ask for the city map from concierge or get the tourist guide from the lobby. It will give you more details for the city travelling.
