Shanghai Holiday Packages

Shanghai isn’t just the largest city in China—it’s also the most populated city in the world. Despite the vast size of this metropolis, it has a welcoming feel that appeals to international visitors. Whether your ideal Shanghai holiday involves temple visits or dancing the hours away at one of the world's hottest nightclubs, you will find plenty to keep you busy during your trip abroad.

Things to Do in Shanghai

From skyscrapers to peaceful gardens, Shanghai has something for everyone. The People's Square is an iconic spot and a must-see during any holiday in Shanghai. The square features several beautiful fountains, as well as the Shanghai Museum, home to the area's finest works of art. Wander through its variety of intriguing exhibits, which include ceramics, furniture and calligraphy. Much of the artwork at the Shanghai Museum is historic, so if you'd rather check out the modern art scene, make a trip to one of the art galleries near Moganshan Road. Buy some pieces from the area's up-and-coming artists—you’re sure to find the perfect accent for the hallway.

If you need a brief getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big city, book a car in Shanghai and head for Yu Garden, an oasis filled with goldfish ponds and lovely rockeries. This enchanting attraction is adjacent to the City God Temple of Shanghai, which locals often refer to as the Old City God Temple.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Although there are several shopping malls and trendy boutiques in Shanghai, the city's best shopping opportunities all involve markets. Fashionistas love Linfen Road's market, which features a variety of chic accessories and clothing items. Zhongshan Park is a great place to grab a bite as you shop, as it features several excellent food vendors. The same can be said for Tongbei Road's market, which is known for its seafood stalls.

If you'd rather dine in a restaurant, stop by one of the fine dining establishments located along Henan Road. Shanghai has several local dishes worth sampling, but if you try just one of the area's staples, make sure it’s the sweet and sour spare ribs. For an interesting and surprisingly delicious experience, sample Shanghai's version of Italian food at one of the restaurants on Yan'an Road.

Thirsty? Us too! Shanghai's bar scene, where you can find strong drinks and electronic dance music, is one of a kind. Several hot spots are located along the Huangpu River, and are a great place to mingle with locals. You may be surprised to learn that Shanghai also has several laid-back sports bars, many of which can be found in the Pudong district.

What's Next?

Shanghai is often referred to as the Paris of the Orient—a fitting name for such a gorgeous and cultured city. Make the most of your trip to this thriving metropolitan area by booking vacation packages to downtown Shanghai.
