    What to Expect
    Begin with pickup from your downtown Shanghai hotel in the morning. Meet your private guide, and set out by private, air-conditioned vehicle to explore this fast-growing metropolis, one of China’s most vibrant cities.

    Take in the bustling streets on route to your first stop: the Yuyuan Garden, located in the heart of the city. The 16th-century Ming dynasty governor Pan Yunduan spent nearly 20 years designing and creating this wonderful garden to please his parents in their old age.

    Hop out and stretch your legs around this serene park. Admire the ornamental ponds, bridges, pavilions, weeping willows, and shaded alcoves as you learn about its history and symbolism.

    Appreciate the contrast between this peaceful oasis and the commotion of the neighboring Yuyuan bazaar, and then continue to The Bund, the mile-long (1.6-kilometer), colonial-era waterfront along the River Huangpu.

    Hear about the handsome 1920s buildings that flank the promenade, and absorb the views over the river to Shanghai’s Pudong financial and business district, replete with skyscrapers and dominated by the Oriental Pearl TV Tower.

    After a classic Shanghai lunch at a local restaurant, drive onward to the Shanghai Museum, home to a 120,000-strong collection of historical artifacts and artworks. See highlights such as ancient Chinese bronzes, ceramics, paintings, calligraphy, and jade, as your guide sheds light on their significance and artistry.

    From here, visit the Jade Buddha Temple. Built in 1882 to house two jade Buddha statues brought to China from Myanmar, this classical temple exudes an aura of serenity and spirituality.

    View the Chinese lantern-strung courtyards and richly carved chambers, and admire the gold Buddha statues as you learn about the temple’s meaning and history.

    After 8.5 hours of exploring, your trip concludes with a drop-off at your downtown Shanghai hotel.
