With a nickname like the "Pearl of the Orient," it's not surprising Shanghai offers some of the most rewarding attractions and activities in the Far East.
Get some cultural insight at Former French Concession and Zhujiajiao Ancient Town. Get some historical perspective at Xitang Ancient Town and Jade Buddha Temple. Step out of Shanghai with an excursion to Zhouzhuang Water Town in Kunshan--about 1h 30 min away. And it doesn't end there: go for a walk through The Bund (Wai Tan), admire the natural beauty at Yu Garden (Yuyuan), enjoy breathtaking views from Oriental Pearl Tower (Dongfang Mingzhu), and admire the striking features of Tian Zi Fang.

For photos, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Shanghai sightseeing planner.

Hong Kong to Shanghai is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive. In August, daytime highs in Shanghai are 38°C, while nighttime lows are 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
