After breakfast, head to the Shanghai Museum, the first museum to meet international exhibition standards in China. The museum is designed to recall the shape of an ancient Chinese Ding vessel, and has a collection of more than 120,000 pieces on display, including bronze, paintings, jade, furniture for the Ming and Qing dynasty, ancient coins, and the list just keeps going. A real gem of Shanghai.
Afterwards, drive to the old town Shanghai and visit the Yu Gardens, an ancient park which was founded by the Pan family, a very rich family about 500 years ago during the Ming Dynasty. Witness the breathtaking landscape of the garden, to have a better understanding of the Ming garden design and layout. Next to the garden you will see a market jammed with antique and souvenir shops.
After visiting Yu Garden, walk along Nanjing Road to enjoy the sightseeing of the Bund. Then in the evening, take a Huangpu River Cruise to see the breathtaking night scene of Shanghai.
