Day 1 Arrival in Shanghai (Lunch)
Today's Activities After airport/ railway station pick-up and hotel transfer, you have your belongings settled down and enjoy a brief rest yourself in the cozy hotel. From now on begin your happy sightseeing itinerary in Shanghai!

The first stop is the over 400-year-old Yuyuan Garden, the representative ancient garden in Shanghai. Here you have about 1.5 hours to appreciate the elegant pavilions, villa, lotus pond and bridges. Don’t miss the two highlights Mid-Lake Pavilion and Zigzag Bridge that make access to the Pavilion.

Out from Yuyuan Garden and let’s move to the neighboring Yuyuan Market to explore how elaborate and cute the traditional Chinese handicrafts and art works are. Just make full use of the 1- hour touring.

The latter two attractions are about the modernity and European style of Shanghai. Strolling along this 1,599-meter-long Nanjing Road, you can see why it's regarded the symbol of Shanghai fashion and luxury. Before you are seas of garment, shoes, jewelry, accessory, snack and souvenir…Perhaps 2 hours is just too brief to meet your curiosity!

Nanjing Road is moreover a prelude of the amazing assembly of European-styled old buildings, The Bund! Here you can embrace the best cityscape, feast on the rich architectural fashions ( Gothic, Baroque, Rome, Renaissance, Classic and Mixed Eastern and Western style, etc.) and know why Shanghai is glorified as Paris of the East. BTW, you can also watch the world-famous Oriental Pearl Tower across the river.

In Shanghai we have Matthew (Mr Fan) as tour guide and he is also a great tour guide! He looks after us and making sure we are not conned by the taxis and also other things to look out for. He makes sure the driver drives safely and also not to talk on the mobile phone while driving. Many minor things are well taken care by Matthew. It seems minor but it means a lot to us! He has good knowledge of Shanghai and we will recommend you to use him often as a tour guide for your other customers!
