Experience the world’s fastest train.

Take your Instagram-worthy photo at The Bund.

The Bund is symbolic for Shanghai because it has been the city’s center of trade for centuries.

Find your zen at the Yuyuan Garden.

After taking photos and strolling at The Bund, you can go straight to Yuyuan Garden to find your zen. This beautiful green space will make you forget that you’re in the middle of a modern city with its beautiful architectural structures reminiscent of the Ming Dynasty’s glory days. Don’t forget to see the exquisite Jade Rock believed to be part of Song Emperor Huizong’s private collection while you’re in Yuyuan.

Explore the edgy side of Shanghai at M50.

The city may be known for its glamorous lifestyle, but it also has an edgy side that you can experience at the M50 industrial art complex. Here, you can check out galleries showcasing the works of contemporary Chinese artists displayed in old cotton mills and factories.

Experience a different kind of shopping in Tianzifang.

If Shanghai’s oversized malls prove too expensive for your taste, head to Tianzifang to get a more authentic shopping experience. This entertainment complex located within traditional alleyways or longtangs is home to a network of cafes, boutiques, souvenir shops and design studios where you can get good stuff to take home or just enjoy the community vibe.
