The bespoke four-day, three-night tour of China’s second city begins with a ride on the futuristic Maglev, the world’s fastest commuter train, which arrives in the Pudong district an area that has undergone dramatic change in the last 20 years going from marshland inhabited only by farmers and ox to skyscrapers covered in neon.
Travelers can then experience The Bund, a pedestrianized shopping zone which is lined by some of Puxi’s historical buildings, before exploring Nanjing Road, one of the world’s busiest shopping areas which highlights the fusion of old and new, foreign and domestic which represents modern China.
The tailored Shanghai tour also includes various insider experiences including seeing the futuristic city from a less modern perspective with guided tours by local Backyard Travel guides who will lead the way around the French Concession, People’s Square and Xintiandi, Tianzifang and the marvelous Yu Gardens. While in the gardens, travelers will have the chance to take tea in the Huxinting Teahouse and meet a Chinese gardener who will explain the art of penjing, better known as bonsai.
While in China’s second city, travelers can also take a guided visit to M50, located at 50 Moganshan St, now renowned as one of the leading centers for contemporary art in China, on par with the famous 798 District of Beijing.
