Arranged a Shanghai coach tour would definitely costs less and it will be much more convenient, you can make a stop within the city and you can also make a side tour around Shanghai by way!
We began our Shanghai tour at about 08:30 am with a visit to the Yuyuan Garden, which was built in the Ming Dynasty, and Shanghai Old Street, which can be dated back to the Qing Dynasty.
We stop at the Bund, Shanghai’s waterfront, well known for its grand exhibition of colonial-era architecture. The wonderful view of both sides of the Huangpu River us quite impressive. Later, we went to Shanghai Museum of Ancient Chinese Arts which boasts more than 120,000 rare and unique items that can be grouped into 21 categories, making it one of the most well-known cultural institutions in the city.
After lunch, we drive through the former French Concession to the Shanghai Arts and Crafts Store, stopping by the Jade Buddha Temple. The last stop is Xin Tian Di, which is a stylish nightlife district with many boutiques, pubs, and restaurants. You are free to have a couple of drinks at a venue of your choice, or head back to the hotel with the group.
If have to give some comments to Shanghai, I would say it is really one of the fastest growing cities in the world, packed with skyscrapers in various designs. Among all these edifices, the Oriental Pearl Tower is one of the must-see scenic spot in Shanghai, esp. the view of the Oriental Pearl Tower at night. As the World Expo 2010 was held in Shanghai, this Tower and the area around is well redecorated with flowers, trees and lights. Take photos there is certainly a good choice, while it is also a challenge to photographers for its height and shape.
Besides the Oriental Pearl Tower, the Shanghai World Financial Center is also a must-see sights, which is now surpassing the Oriental Pearl Tower in the height. It is built by a Japanese designer and finished in 2008.
