Shanghai Night Tour by Bike
US$ 72.80

From Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom to Skyfall, many movies have captured the magic of Shanghai by night. On this vintage bike tour, enjoy a comprehensive sampler of the city’s after-dark scene. Leave navigation to your guide as you travel from the Old Town to the Bund, hearing about Chinese culture along the way. And because it’s a small-group tour, you have plenty of time to ask questions.

What to Expect

Greet your guide in Xintiandi, don your helmet, and hop aboard your vintage Forever bicycle, a Shanghai original. See how the city transforms after dark as you follow your tour leader on a roughly 6-mile (9-kilometer) journey from the narrow streets of Old Town to the brilliant lights of the Bund and the Lujiazui skyline.

You’ll pedal around the colorful streets that surround the historic Yu Garden, learn about ghost wedding rituals, visit a traditional Chinese medicine outlet, and sample delicious street food. Before you return to Xintiandi, you’ll have discovered the many faces of Shanghai, ancient and modern, that make this city so unique.

That's such a wonderful feedback, as the majority of our guests are foreigners and they are very surprised by "our version of local Shangai"! But having also Chinese guests enjoying our bike experience is a lovely reward, since we can share our passion for​ Chinese...More
