Pearl of the Orient

With a nickname like the "Pearl of the Orient," it's not surprising Shanghai offers some of the most rewarding attractions and activities in the Far East.
Get some historical perspective at Zhujiajiao Ancient Town and Former French Concession. Get some cultural insight at The Bund (Wai Tan) and Shanghai Development Exhibition Hall. Explore Shanghai's surroundings by going to Xitang Ancient Town (in Jiashan County) and Suzhou (Shantang Street, Suzhou Museum, &more). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Shanghai Museum (Shanghai Bowuguan), take a stroll through Taikang Road, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and appreciate the history behind Jade Buddha Temple.
