Legendary Shanghai

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 450

From the famous Bund to the fascinating Yu Yuan Gardens, Shanghai combines the traditional with a glimpse of the future with its architecture and progressive lifestyle plus much more.


Shanghai is a city which has been described as futuristic due to the amazing recent developments to its infrastructure and architecture. However, although these developments will be found fascinating, the traditional side of the city still exists in its neighbourhoods.

A walk down pedestrian Nanjing Road will show a side of the city which has long been in existence with its small stores including a number of emporiums selling a variety of antiques. The legendary Bund or riverside boardwalk reveals examples of the British and French late 19th Century, early 20th Century architecture for which Shanghai is famous.

Visits to the atmospheric Jade Buddha Temple and the traditional extensive Yu Yuan Gardens will remind you of a bygone era that should never be forgotten.

At Goway we are experts at designing personalized itineraries to suit your special interests, tastes and budget. Let us arrange your ultimate travel experience today.

Day 2

Full Day Nanjing Road, The Bund, Yu Garden and Jade Buddha Temple with Lunch

On your first stop today, you will visit Nanjing Road, a must-see metropolitan destination attracting thousands of fashion-seeking shoppers from all over the world. Next, visit the Yu Garden located at the heart of Old Town and considered one of the most lavish and finest Chinese gardens in the region.
Then it's onward to the Bund, also called the Zhongshan Road, a famous waterfront that has been regarded as the symbol of Shanghai for hundreds of years. Located to the south of the Bund, the old Chinese city was a walled fishing town when the British arrived in 1843. Modern Shanghai grew up around it.
Finally, you will venture to the western part of Shanghai where there is a venerable and famous Buddhist temple, the Jade Buddha Temple. In 1882, an old temple was built to keep two jade Buddha statues, which had been brought from Burma by a monk named Huigen. The temple was destroyed during the revolution that overthrew the Qing Dynasty. Fortunately, the jade Buddha statues were saved and a new temple was built on the present site in 1928. Lunch is included.
