Located at No.168 Fuyou Road, Yu Garden was originally a private garden in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Now, as a famous tourist attraction, Yu Garden welcomes many tourists every year. It preserves the unique beauty of the antique garden architectures of southern China. Generally speaking, its main buildings are spread in six scenic areas: Huge Rockery, Wanhua Chamber, Dianchun Hall, Huijing Tower, Exquisite Jade Rock, and Inner Garden. At the front gate, the first thing you will see is a brown rock carved with several Chinese characters. The literal meaning of these characters is “the famous garden in Shanghai”. If you go to the northeast, you will see Dianchun Hall, which now covers an area of 300 square meters. The whole building is built on a low brick platform, with vivid Chinese opera figures carved on its wooden doors and windows. The golden Chinese characters on the large plaque in Dianchun Hall are vigorous and forceful, combining hardness and softness in calligraphy. If you are interested, you can ask your guide for more details.
Next, we will head for Shanghai Old Street, a commercial street located at No.249 Fangbang Middle Road, is not far from Yu Garden. Every city has its unique streets, and so does Shanghai. Shanghai Old Street is unique for it best reflecting the changes and upheavals of Shanghai's history. It mainly has east and west two sections, divided by Yiguan Street as the boundary. Its east section has experienced restoration and renovation, retaining Shanghai’s featured dwelling houses of the late Qing Dynasty (1840-1912) and the early Republic of China (1912-1928). In the west section, the facades of the houses imitate the architecture of Ming (1368-1644) and Qing Dynasties (1636-1912). Shanghai Old Street is also the gathering place of persons from all walks of life. For example, you can visit Ligaotang Store, a franchise store selling candies made of pear syrup. There are twenty or thirty flavors of pear syrup candies. Especially there is a kind of pear syrup candy that can relieve cough. Moreover, you will find Wang Dalong Scissors Store, which is the leader of Shanghai scissors shops. The scissors it sells are still sharp even after years of use. Isn’t it very pleasant and joyous to walk leisurely on the picturesque old streets?
After lunch, we will visit Tianzifang Market, which is a fashion street transformed from a Long Tang (a kind of lane in Shanghai). Tianzifang Market has all kinds of snacks, handicrafts, souvenirs, restaurants, bars, cafes, studios, and design rooms. Here, you can buy Snowflake Flaky Pastry (a crisp and soft dessert), Shanghai White Rabbit milk candy, and Shanghai face cream. Some shops are not allowed to take photos. So, it is better to check whether there are forbidden signs or ask the shop owner. Besides, there are many art pubs that foreigners like to visit. Many stores are very creative, and the souvenirs they sell are also very interesting. Welcome to explore them one by one!
After that, we will go to the Bund. The Bund is located at the junction of Huangpu River and Suzhou Creek. With a length of about 1,500 meters from Garden Bridge of Shanghai to East Yan’an Road, the Bund is mainly on both sides of East Zhongshan No.1 Road. The main attractions are the HSBC Building with the widest façade and coverage and the largest volume on the Bund, the Bank of China Building with Chinese elements, the Garden Bridge of Shanghai, and the Huangpu Park. The No.1 Building in the Bund is the Asian Building, which is the oldest high-rise building in Shanghai. Now it serves as the headquarters of China Pacific Insurance Company. Both the bottom and the top of the Asian Building are Baroque style, and the middle belongs to modern architectural style. Moreover, you will be impressed by the smooth transportation, convenient shopping, and complete tourism facilities here.
Then, we will leave for Nanjing Road. Located in the center of Shanghai, along the Huangpu River, Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street is one of the places you must visit in Shanghai. This street is also the most prosperous business district in Shanghai, surrounded by various high-end boutiques and shops. How about visiting the popular candy store, M&M’S™? You can’t miss this rainbow-colored store! The first floor displays all kinds of merchandise, such as T-shirts and caps with M&M’S cartoon characters and logos. The whole wall on the second floor is colored candies. Who would refuse the delicious peanut chocolate beans here? The store’s hot spot is its Great Wall of Chocolate, which is very interesting because it has a machine that can test the color of your mood today. Come to this pedestrian street and feel the prosperity of the Shanghai metropolis.
Today’s last stop is Shanghai Tower. It is in the core area of the Lujiazui Financial Zone in Shanghai’s Pudong New Area. The total height of the building is 632 meters, which means Shanghai Tower is the tallest building in China and the second tallest in the world. With a total construction area of 578,000 square meters, this super high-rise building includes 9 vertical communities (or zones), each of which is surrounded by a public area between double glass curtain walls. Zone 1 is the retail and conference center, where you can find retails, catering services, banquet halls, and conference facilities. Zones 2 to 6 are standard office floors, giving you a panoramic view of the city landscape. The air lobbies between office zones have garden atriums with abundant light where people can communicate with each other freely. In addition, Shanghai Tower International vertical marathon was held here in 2019. Shanghai Tower, a green, intelligent, and humane vertical community, has witnessed the courage and perseverance of countless competitors who have produced surprising tournament records.
After the visit, we will go to the hotel in the downtown area.
In the morning, we will come to Zhujiajiao Water Town by driving southwest from the downtown hotel for about 1 hour (50KM). With a 1,700-year-old history, Zhujiajiao Water Town keeps the scenery of Jiangnan (regions in south of the Yangtze River) before Shanghai first opened as a commercial port. It was said that in 1958, the Chinese government set off a frenzy of iron and steel production. In search of iron ore, the raw material for the production of iron, the people of this town drained Dadian Lake in the north. At the bottom of the lake, a large number of Neolithic relics had been discovered unexpectedly. They were proved to be the cultural relics of Chinese Neolithic cultures, including Majiabang culture, Songze culture, and Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City. Later in 1959, the town folks salvaged many stone knives, stone plows, and ancient ceramic pieces from the lake. These relics from the Neolithic Age to the Warring States period (475-221 BC) are sufficient to prove that the ancestors of the local people in Zhujiajiao lived and labored here thousands of years ago. Besides historical relics, there are also a lot of special food in Zhujiajiao: steamed fish, tie meat (meat wrapped with straw), sweet lotus root, crisp duck, etc. By the way, this town was once a popular place to film many famous Chinese TV series. Follow your tour guide and enjoy this town’s lovely atmosphere.
After lunch, it’s time to say goodbye to Shanghai. You will take the return flight under the escort of our guide.
