Our first time to Asia & a memorable holiday. So many different attractions: gardens, temples, skyscrapers , museums, old parts of a city with plenty of history...
Don't miss The Bund, by day & also by night, visit some temples: the Jade Buddha Temple (over-commercialised), Jing'An Temple -on the door-step!- was more impressive as was the temple at Longhua which is a good example of a place of worship in daily use. Fabulous pagoda nearby & an interesting memorial park.
Enjoy the YuYuan Gardens,very peaceful despite being close to a bustling bazaar (also worth a visit, especially if you like bargaining!)
Visit the old parts of town -Dongtai Antiques market (sells more than antiques, silk, silver, jade...) & the Bird, insect & flower market on Xizang South Rd.
Worth a visit too:the Shanghai Museum near People's Square, a silk factory & shop at 289 Aomen Rd & M50 on Moganshan Rd.
Sample the local cuisine such as filled dumplings, often sold at the roadside but be careful of hygiene. Good selection of eating places other than those suggested in guide-books. Near the apartment, you'll find a basement eating mall in the '1788' complex. Quibao is also worth a visit for its main street of gift shops leading on to a vast selection of food stalls. Wonderful smells & a pleasure to look at.
Take a stroll in the French Concession & visit Fuxing Park, Xintiandi & Tianzifang & admire the French style buildings.
Beware of scams- decline having tea after friendly offers to take your photo
Close to Metro lines 2 & 7,easy access to all areas. Jing'An Temple is 5 minutes walk away. Plenty of shops (food and general) and places to eat.
