Shanghai is the largest and most prosperous city in China, often called the ‘Paris of the Orient’ or the ‘Pearl of China’. This tour showcases all that has made Shanghai the epitome of one of the most modern and fast-developing cities in the world.
The tour starts with the Oriental TV Tower, the unmistakable symbol of modern Shanghai, the highest tower in Asia and the third highest in the world. Enjoy a panoramic view of Shanghai from the main observatory.
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.
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.
