Shanghai Grand Theatre

The white arched roof and the transparent lustrous glass wall ingeniously incorporated poses like a crystal palace. The stage is the largest in the world with the most convertible stage facilities. The Grand Theater has become a centre of cultural life in Shanghai, providing a place for performances of world-class operas, films and music. It is a cultural symbol in Shanghai as an international metropolis.

The Bund

The Bund alongside Huangpu River once was the financial center of the Far East. It is considered the city's symbol since the 1920s. It is often referred to as "the museum of buildings", as many different styles of European buildings can be found here. Now it is even more attractive as you can also see modern skyscrapers just across the Huangpu River. That gives you a strong contrast between modern life and the past.

Yuyuan Garden

A traditional Chinese Ming style private garden, originally built in 1559 but ransacked and restored several times since then. Entry to the garden for many exquisite Chinese pavilions, seemingly never-ending paths, and sculpted gardens within. Near the garden, the famous zigzag bridge and its teahouse can be visited. The bazaar near the garden is always crowded with both Chinese and Western tourists.


Little known to Shanghai old timers, Tianzifang has transformed itself from legacy residential architectures and factories into an artsy area housing bars, cafes, crafts shops, design studios, galleries and boutiques. It is ardently supported by crowds of yuppies, trend setters, designers and expatriates, who fall for temptation of old Shikumen houses (stone-framed-door houses) and lanes with infinite novelties.


Located in the center of Shanghai City and south of Middle Huaihai Road, Xintiandi Shanghai has become an urban attraction that holds the historical and cultural legacies of the city. It is a fashionable pedestrian street composed of Shikumen and modern architecture style.

Shanghai Jade Buddha Temple

Jade Buddha Temple, built in 1928, was to keep two precious jade Buddha statues brought from Burma by Monk Huigen.
