Live the high life

Embrace the high life in the exhilarating city of Shanghai, the perfect place for shopping all day and partying all night. Hop on a cruise ship at The Bund and take in the dazzling lights of Jin Mao Tower and Oriental Pearl Tower, or simply watch the locals practice tai chi and dance by the river. Go for a stroll at Yuyuan Gardens and experience the China of yesteryear with its classical Chinese architecture. If you're visiting the city in winter, don't miss the Shanghai hairy crab. In fact, all the seafood is amazing, as you can enjoy it in different ways.

Another local cuisine to try is the ‘xiao lung bao’ or little dragon buns – steamed dumplings filled with delicious broth, cooked with a dab of meat. Bargain hunters will be in for a treat at Nanjing Road and Qupu Lu clothing market, the best places for shopping at fantastic prices.
