Favourite Destinations



Not only is Shanghai the largest city in China but it’s also one of the largest cities in the world. It’s an important business center but perhaps more notably a favored tourist destination. You don’t want to miss out on the sights, food and fun this city provides travelers.

Spend time in contemplation along Shanghai’s Promenade 

While those who live there call it by the Anglo-Indian name Bund, Shanghai’s Promenade offers a blissful stroll along the west bank of the Huangpujiang River. It’s a splendid place to soak in the atmosphere and get lost in the depths of your thoughts. Take in the 52 buildings constructed in a variety of styles including Gothic, Romanesque, Baroque, Neoclassical, and Renaissance influences.

Visit the traditional gardens of China

The magnetic Yu Yuan Garden is also known as Garden of Happiness. Lying in the northeast of the old town, this beautiful still watered zone awaits. There’s an outer and inner garden. Centuries-old, this heritage is draped with lovely roof ornaments, figurative representations in moldings, paintings on window openings, and its dragon-adorned walls.

Shanghai Natural Wild Insect Kingdom

A great attraction for kids, the Shanghai Natural Wild Insect Kingdom offers live displays where the insects live in different environments like water and rainforest. In addition to insects, there are amphibians like Chinese alligators and tree frogs… and oddly, goats. To parents, it may feel like a hodge-podge (not to mention the Looney Tunes statues outside), but kids will revel in the interaction with the insects and animals.

Jade Buddha Temple

Another Shanghai spot giving off a serene atmosphere is the Jade Buddha Temple, built between 1918 and 1928. All kinds of figures and statues reside in this temple, but none are more special than the two cultural jade Buddhist statues. You will marvel at the temple’s centerpiece, is the 1.9m-high (6 feet) pale-green jade Buddha carved from one piece, but unfortunately, photographs are not permitted. The Temple is a popular stop for tour buses, so be prepared for crowds. There is an admission fee.

Get a Chinese Massage

There’s really nothing like a great massage while on vacation, right? Well, at some of the best places for massage in Shanghai, you can get one… intense… massage. If you’re looking for a soothing massage, there are several to choose from throughout the city. However you’re in China, so go with the traditional therapy for tackling muscle pain, but it’s not for the weak at heart. What’s the saying? No pain. No gain. In the end though, you are gonna feel refreshed.

Where history, art and culture meet, the world seems more beautiful than it is. Shanghai is a place where you can leave your mark and enjoy it as a feel-good place. Whether you go on a sudden visit or a planned holiday, the city is well connected to ensure you cover the distance in less time to get to all those Shanghai experiences.
