French Concession: Fuxing Park

Meet your panda pal in your hotel lobby (usually at 9:00 a.m. but up to you!) and start your journey in Fuxing Park, where you'll get to hang out with locals as they take part in classic Chinese morning activities, including dancing, meditating, and practicing Tai Chi. Some are also gathering to play cards and catching up with friends. It's the perfect way to start your day in Shanghai!

The French Concession: Tianzifang

Next, head to the Tianzifang in the Former French Concession, an area of well-preserved stone houses with lots of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants. The houses are all reconstructed from old colonial-era residential blocks. Stroll through the alleyways and have a leisure time enjoying the art, food and souvenirs. 

Xiao Long Bao Lunch

Revitalize yourself with a delicious lunch in a local restaurant where you can try Shanghai's famous "Xiao Long Bao" (little dragon dumplings) and other delicious dishes.

A Bird's View of Shanghai

After lunch, we'll head over to Pudong Lujiazui Financial Center and head up one of the skyscrapers, where you'll get a breathtaking panoramic view of Shanghai.

The Bund: Huangpu River Cruise

Before the sun sets we'll take a stroll down Shanghai's famous Bund before hopping on a sightseeing cruise down the Huangpu River. You'll see amazing city landmarks along the riverside, such as the Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Shanghai Tower and colonial banking houses of the Bund.
