Just the mere mention of ‘Shanghai’ conjures up mystery, romance and general decadence. Pre – 1949, cosmopolitan Shanghai was a magnet for seekers of wealth, idle colonialists, explorers and the dispossessed. Everything went belly up in 1949, when Mao and the communists took to power and swept the good times and rock and roll away. A legacy of these heady times is Shanghai’s Bund where on and around this waterfront promenade are a vast series of grandiose pre-1949 buildings. Just across the Huangpu River is the new Shanghai, a high-tech development of gravity defying skyscrapers.

Today we take a guided tour of many of the city’s top spots including the Yuyuan Gardens and market - Shanghai’s finest traditional garden, the Bund, Pudong and the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and the Jade Buddha Temple. After, we take a cruise along the Huangpu Rive Overnight - Shanghai (B)
