Unlike many Chinese cities, that appear to have forgotten that people occasionally like to walk, much of Shanghai is made for walking
and cycling. While wandering, or riding, through shady sycamore trees past elegant villas in the colonial-era French Concession,
travelers will find European-style buildings harmoniously standing alongside typical Chinese structures and ancient temples.
Shanghai is a fascinating city for night owls. The Bund is an absolute must for visitors. The rippling Huangpu River, characteristic Western
style buildings on the west bank and extraordinarily futuristic skyscrapers on the east bank, all become more enchanting adorned
in sparkling coloured lights at night. A night cruise on the Huangpu River is highly recommended.
For art lovers, Shanghai’s Grand Theater, Oriental Art Centre and many other performance venues will delight. While Nanjing Xi Road and
Xin Tian Di offer visitors a variety of nightclubs, bars, coffee houses and boutique shopping.
For lovers of fine dining and bar/club culture Shanghai now rivals any city in the world, with a mind boggling
variety of options to delight every taste and wallet.
