    This is old Shanghai with all its history. Adjacent to Nanjing Street. Has everything a tourist would want. Dont miss the river cruise and do take it at the time of sunset. We took it at 6.30 pm so we saw the day light scenery and returned by the time it was dark (45 mins cruise). Hence we got to see the fantastic lighting which is similar to the Hong Kong cruise. Affordable and very well maintained vessels and very punctual and organised. An absolute must visit while in Shanghai.

    Suits by Susan were amazing! They have English speaking staff and were very accommodating. They really know their stuff. We had 2 suits done, and it was ready after 24 hours. You can also have it delivered to your hotel.

    Beautiful! Must in Shanghai. The area right outside the mansion also really nice with shops to look around and walk. Fun. Almost like an outdoor shopping mall.

    The Oriental Pearl Tower is a landmark of Shanghai that few visitors miss. The Oriental Pearl Tower was worth visiting, it's a standout 875 feet tall. You can get something to eat if you visit the tower. It's in Pudong, which means "Eastern City" in Shanghai. Oriental Pearl Tower is a monument to progress in Shanghai's Pudong New Area. We have visited this area several times, it helps make the trip to Shanghai worth the trip.

    A great shopping road if you have money to spend. But also just a great people watching road. Has a nice atmosphere at night and well worth walking along the road at night.

    It has been around ten years since our last visit and we were keen to see the exhibitions. Then, there was a wonderful exhibit showcasing the terracotta warriors.

    It was an interesting sight to see the building, which is in the shape of an old imperial wine cup traditionally used by the Emperor.

    Unfortunately, this time, three of the galleries were closed, and the exhibit on Leonardo da Vinci had just ended. Nevertheless, they still had similar galleries showcasing the clothing and jewellery of the minority groups in China, as well as calligraphy and Chinese paintings. We liked the wooden furniture exhibition.

    All in all, we spent on,y an hour here this time, due to the gallery closures.

    Entry is free via a QR code, and you need your passport. You can register at the booth outside near the souvenir store, and entry is then further round the corner at the southwest entrance. The nearest Metro exit is number 1, and the museum is closed on Mondays. There is another branch of the museum in Pudong.

    For lots of foreigners in Shanghai, this is the place to go. It still looks French and there is an international feel as there are restaurants from all over the place. So many restaurants. So much great food. It's a great place to walk and a great place to eat!

    A lot of things changed during COVID-19 Pandemic, but not the extraordinary service provided by Heping Fandian's team! Heping Hotel has been my favorite hotel in China since 2018. I met Zoey, their talented and excellent front desk operator who helped me a lot during my stay. China is changing rapidly since last I was there. Zoey was kind and informative. She made my visit in China much more easier. The room she gave me have impeccable street view. It always makes me want to extend my stay.

    If you are looking for interesting food other than Chinese food, this is a good place to start. Even if not for meals, taking a stroll and taking in the architecture is just as pleasant.

    The view you see is during the cruise is amazing. However to get this view we had to upgrade to the VIP tickets on the boat, which puts you at the front of the boat. That gives unobstructed views. Important to note though that people are allowed to smoke on the boat and they do. The volume of people pushing in the lines to get to the boat, on the stairs and at the top of the boat was troubling to us, noting this might not be an issue for others. We think it is a must do whilst in Shanghai and upgrading to the VIP is important if you want space, an outside view and not be pushed as much.

    We loved this place, although it is very touristy and really a shopping experience. It was quite busy, I imagine at the weekend it would be unbearable. I loved the narrow lane shopping experience, you could walk past without too much attention paid to you, unlike other markets in China. You are 1 of many tourists here. Lots of places to eat.

    We didn’t do the gardens, temples or boat. We took the tourist tuk tuk to the entrance at 20 Yuan. The poor driver was struggling with our Western weight!

    Nice to take your time and walk through the alleys. At times can be quite confusing as the alleys are all spread out. Nice little shops along the way but food is not the focus here.

    Take your Shanghai pictures memories here, the world famous views of pudong can be take. Here. Plenty of good spots to admire the shanghai skyline, take the rivers cruises and walking distance from many touristy places like the bund, Nanjing street and upscale restaurants. It’s a must while you visit Shangai and never regret.

    I have been to many European and Asian cities but for architecture, Shanghai is the best. Singapore second. Paris third. (My opinion). Not related to architecture which is focus of this review, but street food and restored palace/old city were real bonuses.
