    Jade Buddha Temple

    170 Anyuan Road, Shanghai, 31 China
    13 reviews

    Jade Buddha Temple is not as big as Jing’an Temple in Shanghai, but people come here for the Jade Buddha. It was interesting to learn that Buddhism is not a religion in particular, that it represents all Gods. People practicing Buddhism believe there are three lives, the past, the present, and the future. They light candles for the dead, tie ...

    NanJing Road

    Nan Jing Road, Shanghai, 31 220000 China
    47 reviews

    Perfect for people watching. Try not to look too touristy tho, you'll get approached by strangers with all kinds of tourist scam schemes in mind. If you refuse politely they'll usually leave you alone. If the polite way doesn't quite do it, the magic phrase is "bu yao" but don't abuse it, it's kind of rude.

    Yu Yuan Gardens

    64 reviews

    I knew that it would be very touristy. However there were some peaceful areas to the garden once we got away the group tours! It is pretty but you don't need to spend a lot of time here.

    French Concession

    中国上海市卢湾区, Jianguo Middle Rd,
    29 reviews

    The French Concession is one of the best areas to have a walk in Shanghai. In contrast to the rest of the city, the buildings aren't that high and look very European (of course, because they were actually built by Europeans:) ).. There're lots of shops and boutiques, so you can combine your walk with a shopping spree.

    Shanghai World Financial Center

    Century Avenue, Shanghai, China
    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 ...

    M1NT lives up to it's billing as one of Shanghai's trendiest and best restaurants. The setting is gorgeous, the food and service are excellent and the views are great. I was there with a big group and everyone raved about their dishes. The service (even for such a big table) was really good - we had more than one person ...

    Shanghai Ocean Aquarium

    No. 1388 Lujiazui Ring Lu, Luzhou, 51 6460 China
    15 reviews

    Wow, I was very surprised at how cool this aquarium was. It was big! It had tons of cool fish. It had a very long tunnel underwater. And yes, it had jellyfish, always my favorite. I have to laugh at the slow paced moving sidewalk though, it barely moved. It was great though and I really enjoyed the break from ...

    Jin Mao Tower

    2号 Century Avenue, Pudong, Shanghai, China
    16 reviews

    The Jin Mao Tower is one of the tallest in Shanghai and all throughout China. For a great view of Shanghai take the escalator to the top and take a look around. Of note: This tower is less than 15 years old and was completed in the mid-2000s.

    Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall

    13 reviews

    Located in the heart of Shanghai, at the People's Square right beneath the city hall, this museum contains a huge (around 600m²) model of the city. But the model doesn't show the city as it is right now, but rather the city in around five years (e.g. the Shanghai Tower is already finished in 2012 :) ).. beneath the city ...

    Bund Sightseeing Tunnel

    中山东一路外滩351, Zhongshan East 1st Road, Huangpu, Shanghai, China
    16 reviews

    One of the best underground places you should NOT miss! It's interesting to sit in a tiny metro bus that only have four seats. My daughter love the experiences of watching the neon light and magic animation while went through the under-the-river tunnel.
