Shanghai Travel Guide

Shanghai - A Visitor's Guide

Modern Shanghai is a bustling metropolis and one of the hotspots for modern Chinese culture.  While you won't find the same number of attractions here as you will in Beijing or Hong Kong, you will find a wealth of things to see and do.  Experiencing Shanghai can be a great way to begin to understand the diversity that is China.

The Confucian Temple

Located in the heart of historic Old Town, the Confucian Temple is an amazing sight.  You will find manicured grounds with hundreds of birds and flowers, elegant architecture and a quiet oasis in the city.  The temple has been at its current location since 1855, though it dates back to the late 1200s.  A 300-year-old elm tree and many other venerable trees line the grounds, providing a sense of antiquity and tranquility for travelers and worshipers, alike.

Changfeng Ocean World

This underground aquarium is a great place for a family to spend time in the city.  A shark tunnel allows you to walk under swimming sharks, while clownfish and many other species dart about in the other tanks and areas.  The aquarium is ideal for exploring and learning about the fascinating creatures that dwell in the deep around China and provides hours of enjoyment, especially for kids.

Fuxing Park

Originally laid out by the French at the turn of the 20th century, this park has a long history and a beautiful atmosphere.  Enormous wutong trees line the park, providing shady places to rest out of the sun, while the kids will enjoy running and playing in the area.  You will find musicians, chess games, aerobics classes and many other goings-on in the park to provide entertainment and enjoyment.

Duolun Road Cultural Street

Here you will find grand houses, once the homes of China's top generals and writers, as well as numerous shops featuring antiques, curios, cafes and much more.  If you are looking for memorabilia and Mao-era items, this is the place in the city for you.  Shoppers can easily spend the entire day wandering the street, poking around in the shops and still not see all there is.  Dine in one of the local eateries for convenience and a taste of old Shanghai.

You will find numerous other activities in the city, as well.  One of the prime enjoyments in Shanghai is visiting nightclubs after sunset, followed closely by upscale shopping.  Visitors will enjoy a wealth of opportunities to explore the city.
