Shanghai
In Shanghai, known as the “Paris of the East,” the cultures from East and West are intertwined to create the city’s cosmopolitan style. What was once the ten-mile Shanghai International Settlement, established by the British in conjunction with Americans and French living along the Huangpu River in present-day Puxi, the metropolis currently develops and changes every day. There are historical and cultural architectural wonders lining the Bund and Xintiandi, as well as fashionable attractions in Pudong, such as the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and Shanghai Disneyland Resort. Young creative souls can go to the Former French Concession’s Tianzifang and 1933 Laoyangfang (a former slaughterhouse turned into unique shops and art galleries) to experience what the area was once like centuries ago. The fashionable can walk up and down Nanjing Xi Shopping Street to their hearts’ content. Foodies can go to the Chenghuang (City God) Temple in the Yu Garden complex to try Shanghai delicacies. Shanghai is a multifaceted place no one will regret visiting.

joannajojo773The Oriental tower is a must see! I recommend going all the way to the top to watch the sunset. Seeing all the lights from the buildings turn on one by one is mesmerizing. The light up boats along the river are beautiful as well. There are restaurants and museums throughout the tower so take your time to see everything.

Farzit was wonderful experience. we went there on one Saturday. it was not that crowded. Every performance is worth watching. Weekend tickets are more expensive. Kids and parents can enjoy together. Rain coat is only needed if you sit in the first front rows of killer whale shark.

Best Experience in Shanghai

Stroll along the bund, admiring its skyscrapers and buildings and reminiscing on what Shanghai used to be and what it is now. Visit Disneyland Park, the fairytale kingdom; pondering upon the antiquated architecture of Cheng Huang City temple and savor the long established traditional desserts. From the top of Oriental Pearl Radio and TV Tower, one could view the whole skyline of the city and its financial center. Of course there is also the romance of Old Shanghai. Shikumen and its myriad architectures and the French Concession are also top places to visit. The nightlife in this city is vibrant and varied. Have a drink in an open air pub at the Bund and enjoy the unique charm of Shanghai.

Shanghai from March to May has mild weather and is the best travelling season. From June to late July would be the monsoon season where you will experience lots of rainfall and gloomy days. Come July to September, Shanghai is at its hottest, so you have to avoid getting sunburnt, this is also the period where there may be the occasional hurricane and you have to be prepared for it. Autumn sets in from September to October where the weather is cool and comfortable, and it also happens to be the freshwater crab season. December to March is the off peak season and that is when the weather turns into sub-zero coldness and it is strongly recommended that you avoid travelling there during this duration.
