Biking Around Shanghai

With more than 23 million people, Shanghai is China’s largest city. While it’s possible to get to and from the city’s best sights by taxi or by taking the Metro, riding a bike allows you to explore all of Shanghai’s neighborhoods, whether it be the colonial buildings of the French Concession or the modern skyscrapers of the Bund, at your own pace. If your Mandarin skills are limited, biking around the city saves you the trouble of having to communicate with taxi drivers or deal with the sometimes crowded Metro.

Old and New Tour

Start your tour along the Huangpu River, cycling along the mile-long stretch of road known as the Bund. As you pass the old colonial buildings of Old Shanghai, you’ll be able to see the ultramodern high rises of the new city across the river, including the 101-floor Shanghai World Financial Center and the futuristic looking Oriental Pearl Tower.
