    Yu Yuan Gardens

    64 reviews

    Touristy and a bit crowded but a nice bit of green in the center of the city. One of the must-see spots on the tourist circuit in Shanghai.

    NanJing Road

    49 reviews

    For all you shopaholics out there, this is the place for you. This is probably the busiest street in Shanghai, where shopping malls, restaurants, and tourist traps await you. It's also the longest street in Shanghai today, or to my knowledge it is. It's also walking distance to and from The Bund, so plan accordingly! It extends from the east ...

    Lupu Bridge

    4 reviews

    There are many bridges in Shanghai but this one, also known as 卢浦大桥, and is easily distinguished because of its arch, and lies near the Huangpu River. What's cool about this particular bridge and one of my favorites is you can take a ride up to the observation desk to get a better view of the city. It also lights ...

    Shanghai Science & Technology Museum | 上海科技馆 Shanghai,

    8 reviews

    The museum is great, but the outside is a great place for everyone. Especially children, who would spend all day running around blowing bubbles.

    The Bund

    78 reviews

    Shanghai's skyline which gets illuminated in the evening. The TV tower serves as the distinguishing structure from skylines of rest of the major cities of the world.

    People's Square

    31 reviews

    A well known landmark in Shanghai, this place has evolved over the years. What was a tourist attraction has now been surrounded by commercial buildings and businesses, but that's the norm now in Shanghai. Occassionally, you'll see groups of retired folks coming to the area exercising, ie tai chi, karate, and other types of martial arts. Other than the big ...

    Renmin Park

    14 reviews

    The park is less interesting than the nearby sights but makes for a nice green escape in the middle of the city. Home to the Shanghai Museum.

    Oriental Pearl TV Tower

    72 reviews

    Buying a ticket for 298 Yuan and have access to the panoramic level at 293m, to the rollercoaster at 90m, to the museum in the basement and the best to the revolving buffet restaurant (drink not included). The food worth it, you have a big range of choice: chinese, japonese, continental food. If you are french you'll be glad to ...

    French Concession

    30 reviews

    Spanning widely across the center of the city, the French concession reminds of Strasbourg and some small French villages of course. The idea that Chinese people not used to European urban planning or interior architecture, especially that of the Turn of The Century live there now is quite bizarre. But they blend in great. Probably just as great as the ...

    Shanghai World Financial Center

    23 reviews

    On a good day (decent weather) you get the best view of Shanghai including the Bond, the city centre and the TV tower. It is not cheap, but it is worth it and something you ought to do if you are in Shanghai for the first time for 3-4-5 days. This is currently the highest building in Shanghai, but that ...

    Jing'an Temple Square

    17 reviews

    Perfectly refurbished as if the last brick had just been laid down a few days ago, Jing'an Temple tries it's best to stand out in the irregular, chaotic mash-up of not even so good looking skyscrapers of the area, built at light speed in the mid nineties and twothousands. There is no point in keeping those new buildings around it. ...

    Fuxing Park

    5 reviews

    By day, this is a great park to go on a walk, play mahjong, watch people do tai chi, and generally just stop to smell the flowers. It's a great park in its own right. However, by night, the night life opens up, as there are 3 clubs and a Party World that also reside in Fuxing park. The clubs ...

    上海 外灘

    Something you CAN NOT miss when you visit Shanghai. The best restaurants and bars all line up along the Bund. Plus, you will have great view over the Huangpu River and the new financial district across the river.

    My friends were members here, but otherwise I think it would have been a bit difficult to come party here given its exclusive vibe. But WOW this place is HOT. There's a shark tank in here for crying out loud. And maybe it was the one night I was there, but I met more models than non-models. Being of the ...

    Huangpu River Cruise

    12 reviews

    Embarking on a cruise on Huangpu River is a must do, especially by night for its spectacle of hallucinating neon lights. The scenic tour closely reflects the dramatic changes that Pudong underwent in the last 10-20 years, revealing one of the most spectacular skylines you will ever see. Make sure your camera is fully charged; you won’t stop taking pictures.
