By Viator, June 2015

4 618 Reviews | Add your review

Day trips are a great way to see beyond the city that you're visiting and experience a multitude of sights in one day. This is especially true in such a big country like China. Day trips from Shanghai offer a great opportunity to see more of the surrounding areas and attractions. The following are a few examples of some itineraries that are available.

Gardens and Waterways

If the hustle and bustle of Shanghai is too much for you, spend a day floating down the extensive canals and waterways of the water villages outside of Shanghai with this Zhujiajiao and Seven Treasure Town Day Tour from Shanghai tour.

Or, cool off in the peace and quiet of one of Suzhou's picturesque gardens on this Suzhou and Zhouzhuang Water Village Day Trip from Shanghai tour.

By Air

China is rich in culture and history, and the best way to understand it is to visit cities that are spread across China. If you only have a few days in Shanghai, your itinerary most likely doesn't include a plane ride to destinations like Xi'an, Guilin or Beijing.

Luckily, these prearranged packages help you forget about the stress of planning a trip and include everything you will need to expand your knowledge of China. All of these packages include airfare, meals and transportation - and they all take place in one day: Guilin in One Day , Xi'an in One Day, and Beijing in One Day.
