What You Can Expect

Shanghai Afternoon Sightseeing Tour including Huangpu River Cruise

Shanghai Afternoon Sightseeing Tour including Huangpu River Cruise

After hotel pickup, start your 5-hour tour at the landmark that is most symbolic of hyper-modern Shanghai: the Oriental Pearl Tower.

Located in Pudong Park in the developing Lujiazui District, the tower stands 1,535 feet (468 meters) high and rates as one of the world's tallest TV towers. Follow your guide into the elevator and ride up to the observation deck for panoramic views over Shanghai, including the industrial development alongside the Huangpu River, the wide waterway that slips through the center of Shanghai.

Next, travel over to the Huangpu River to board your boat for a sightseeing cruise. From the river, get a close look at the waterfront and the grand colonial buildings in the Bund, the center of international trade and government in 19th-century Shanghai. The buildings feature diverse architectural styles, including Baroque, Romanesque and Gothic.

Stop for photos at People's Square, a pretty green park that commemorates Chinese patriots and is surrounded by buildings. Then see the vision for the new Shanghai at the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall.

Your final stop is Nanjing Road, the first commercial street in Shanghai. The pedestrian-only street is the popular shopping center of the city, always bustling with locals, business people and tourists. You may want to return on your own in the evening to get a taste of Shanghai's nightlife.

After about five hours, your guide returns you to your hotel to end your tour.

Great Tour but had to be cut short because of the traffic, did not make it to the silk factory a bit of a shame

Massimiliano T

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2014

Tour guide was nice and friendly but the tour itself was very trite and quite commercial, with stop at local pearl shop for opening a oister demonstration. It felt a bit like " battery chicken " tour even if I was on my own, not a touch special, certainly I would not recommend.


1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2014

The river cruise is best done in the evening. Expensive.
