Experience the old China in modern attire
Shanghai’s architecture ranges from ultra-modern high-rises to centuries-old Chinese temples, and everything in between. The city’s oldest buildings can be found along the Bund and include examples from the French colonial period. A walk along this wide promenade is an absolute must. You should also visit the Jade Buddha Temple and join in with the local people from around Fuoxen Park who spend their free time here. The symbol of modern Shanghai is the Oriental Pearl TV Tower with its coloured balls. The tower is home to various attractions, but naturally the most important of these is the glorious view of the city it affords. Shanghai is the ideal destination for a city trip and the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in China. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Shanghai now!
