For insight into Shanghai that goes beyond the basic sights, opt for this customizable private tour. Travel with a guide (who’s also your driver) as you explore traditional parks and modern districts, historic attractions, and the 21st-century skyline. Weekend tours include the notorious Shanghai Marriage Market. Hear commentary along the way, ask plenty of questions, and enjoy hotel pickup and drop-off for a hassle-free experience.
  • Experience traditional Shanghai life—and key attractions—in just one day
  • See the Bund, Old Town, Fuxing Park, Renmin Park, Xintiandi, and Tianzifang
  • Enjoy the personalized attentions of a private driver/guide
  • Adjust your itinerary to suit your individual needs
What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel, explore Fuxing Park, near the former French Concession. Watch locals dancing, playing cards, or practicing their morning tai chi. Next, stroll along the Bund, with its historic architecture, and explore Shanghai Old Town, including the 16th-century Yu Garden. Your next stop is Renmin Park in People’s Square. On weekend afternoons, the park plays host to the Shanghai Marriage Market, when parents of unmarried adults trade information on their children. Visit the Shikumen Museum in Xintiandi and learn about this traditional Shanghainese style of house before you explore Tianzifang, an arts and crafts district in the former French Concession. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.
