Shanghai – China’s New York City
Shanghai is sometimes referred to as “China’s New York City.” Its unique culture combines Chinese and Western elements. Enjoy a stroll along The Bund, Shanghai’s busy waterfront promenade. Or take a scenic Huangpu River Cruise.
Jade Buddha Temple
Be sure to see Shanghai’s historic Jade Buddha Temple and its two exquisite Buddha statues – a White Burmese Jade reclining Buddha and a giant seated Jade Buddha.
Day Trip to Suzhou and Suzhou Gardens
Make the most of your visit to Shanghai and take a day trip to Suzhou. Of all the gardens south of the Yangtze River, Suzhou is the most remarkable amongst them. During the Ming and Qing dynasties (14th-20th century) the city had more than 200 villas and gardens, many of which have been restored and open to the public.
