Things to do
ART & CULTURE
A must-see while in the city is Shanghai Museum – a striking building housing an impressive collection of traditional Chinese crafts and artefacts. You could easily while away a day in the galleries and studios of the Moganshan art district, or exploring restored historic houses and ornate Buddhist temples in the old town.
Shanghai has a fast-growing appetite for luxury goods. Here you’ll find streets lined with big name designers and contemporary boutiques. But go slightly off the beaten track to uncover lively markets and quirky independent stores, offering a treasure trove of unique souvenirs.
NIGHTLIFE & MUSIC
Shanghai truly comes alive as the sun goes down. Start your evening sampling local Hu cuisine, famous for sweet and sour dishes. Then get dressed up for a night at the theatre, seek out a glamorous cocktail bar, or head for an atmospheric jazz club.
