Experience some of China's most beautiful and historic venues during this half-day tour of the Shanghai Museum, Yu Garden and Old Town area. Located in People's Square, the Shanghai Museum is among the finest and most significant museums of its kind in the country. View a portion of its staggering contents: 110,000 historical objects and 430,000 reference pieces. During your visit, you will have an opportunity to see its monographic galleries consisting of bronze, ceramics, calligraphy, painting, sculpture, seal, jade, furniture, coins, and artwork.


Stop in the old town with its maze of narrow alleys and cobblestone lanes and enjoy a visit to the Yu Yuan Gardens. The Pan family, wealthy Ming Dynasty officials, had the Yu Garden built for their enjoyment in the 16th century and opened to the public in 1961 after years of restoration. Small bridges, beautiful rocks, clear-water ponds, elegant pavilions and zigzagging, covered corridors are expertly designed and built in this very delicate, yet beautiful garden.


On your way to the pier, enjoy a scenic drive along the Bund area. This vibrant mile-long waterfront area is a symbol of Shanghai. With its many different European styles of buildings, it evokes a long gone Colonial era.


Need to Know:

Note: Shanghai Museum has recently announced is now closing on Mondays. The museum will be substituted with a visit to the Jade Buddha Temple on Monday calls to Shanghai.
