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.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Shanghai trip builder site.

Take a train from Suzhou to Shanghai in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus. In September, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
