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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Shanghai: Suzhou (Suzhou Garden Museum & Humble Administrator's Garden). There's still lots to do: go for a walk through The Bund (Wai Tan), get the lay of the land with Walking tours, browse the different shops at South Bund Soft Spinning Material Market, and take in panoramic vistas at Shanghai World Financial Center.

Plan a trip to Shanghai easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
