Pearl of the Orient

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.
Visiting Travel China Guide and Huangpu River will get you outdoors. Get some cultural insight at The Bund (Wai Tan) and Shanghai Museum (Shanghai Bowuguan). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Zhujiajiao Ancient Town, shop like a local with Xintiandi, don't miss a visit to Oriental Pearl Tower (Dongfang Mingzhu), and visit Tian Zi Fang.
