Shanghai is a metropolis abounding in energy and excitement and there’s no shortage of interesting things to do. Designer shopping malls, expensive boutiques and upmarket restaurants might appear to reign supreme, but Shanghai is also chock full of free and inexpensive things to do.
The Bund (Wai Tan) Yu Garden (Yuyuan) Oriental Pearl Tower (Dongfang Mingzhu) Shanghai Museum (Shanghai Bowuguan) Shanghai World Financial Center. Nanjing Lu (Nanjing Road) Former French Concession. China Railway High-speed.
Shanghai bristles with buildings, but the city doesn't boast must-see sights like New York or Rome. The joys of Shanghai, instead, are on the street level, where everyday life unfolds with bewildering variety.
