Take a tour around Shanghai and see one of Asia's most progressive cities. Shanghai or "Paris of the Orient" has fast developed economically, culturally and socially. See the Oriental TV Tower, Pudong Park and take a cruise on the Huangpu River.
Shanghai is the largest and most prosperous city in China and is one of the most important economic, financial and cultural centers in all of Asia. In recent years, its pace of development has been astounding. Even if you visited Shanghai only a few years ago, the changes are impressive.
The tour starts with the Oriental TV Tower, the unmistakable symbol of modern Shanghai. Standing in Pudong Park in the new and developing Lujiazui District, it overlooks the industry and commerce quickly developing on the banks of the Huangpu River. You will enjoy a panoramic view of Shanghai from the main observatory and have the opportunity to orient yourself to the thriving metropolis you're about to discover.
A cruise on Huang River gives you another way to see the Bund, the cultural district along the river. From this floating vantage point, you'll see 80-100 year old buildings with diverse architectural styles: Gothic, Baroque, and Romanesque. After a photo stop at People's Square, the picturesque green space surrounded by buildings on all sides, you visit the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall. Here you will see the vision for the new Shanghai.
Your final stop is Nanjing Road, the first commercial street in Shanghai. It is pedestrian friendly, with no cars allowed, and is the popular shopping center of the city. It is always bustling with excitement, with locals, business people and tourists alike. You'll likely want to return in the evening to get a taste of Shanghai nightlife.
