Half-Day Morning Bike Tour of Shanghai Old Town
From $72.47

Shanghai is a fast-paced, cutting-edge hub of fashion and technology, but the Chinese port city is also home to picturesque and under-the-radar historic neighborhoods. Get to see a side of Shanghai that few tourists experience on on classic set of wheels. During this guided bike tour, you’ll cruise down tree-lined boulevards of the French Concession and the narrow lanes of the Old Town.

What to Expect

Shanghai is known for its towering skyscrapers and sleek, futuristic waterfront, but the Old Town still boasts traditional quarters from its heyday as a 1920s port city. During this adventure-filled sightseeing tour of Old Shanghai’s under-the-radar neighborhoods, hop a classic bicycle to cruise between sights.

Perfect for travelers who have already ticked off the top sights, or anyone looking to wander off the beaten track, this fun and leisurely bicycle excursion begins along the French Concession’s tree-lined boulevards with a pastry breakfast. Then, mingle with locals in Fuxing Park and get a peek into hidden villas, which most tourists overlook.
Hop off your bike to wander through a Buddhist temple and browse through the produce stalls of a traditional open-air wet market. Discover a different side of the fast-paced city with a bike ride down Old Town’s narrow lanes and back alleys, where time appears to be frozen in place.

The meeting point is a Hotel lobby so that name of the hotel is enough.
