In the morning, first drive you to visit Yuyuan GardenThe largest one of Shanghai ancient gardens with Ming and Qing architectural styles decorated by beautiful pavilions, miniature lakes, bridges and rockeries. The garden was finished in 1577 by a government officer of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) named Pan Yunduan. 

Yu in Chinese means pleasing and satisfying, and this garden was specially built for Pan's parents as a place for them to enjoy a tranquil and happy time in their old age. 

Yuyuan Garden is the only fully restored classical Chinese garden in Shanghai. It has a total area of 20,000 square meters. Although the Garden occupies less than five acres, demonstrates perfectly the sophisticated art of combining several different elements to create a world in miniature - ingeniously mingling pavilions and corridors, small hills and carefully selected and well-placed rocks, lotus ponds, bridges, winding paths, and trees and shrubs.

Next, head to the Bund. The Bund is a waterfront area in central Shanghai. The area is in the eastern part of Huangpu District centers on a section of Zhongshan Road ,which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River, facing the high, modern skyscrapers of Pudong,Traditionally, the Bund begins at Yan'an Road in the south and ends at Waibaidu Bridge in the north, The Shanghai Bund on which you can embrace the best cityscape, feast on the rich architectural fashions ( Gothic, Baroque, Rome, Renaissance, Classic and Mixed Eastern and Western style, etc.) and know why Shanghai is glorified as "Paris of the East". There are a number of attractions in the area, such as Shanghai World Financial Center, The Oriental Pearl TV Tower, Century Park, Century Boulevard, Jinmao Tower etc. It is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Shanghai.

Keep going to the Old French Concession, situated in Huaihai Road, combines tree-lined streets, local Shanghainese bustle and a growing number of trendy boutiques and restaurants. Most of the architecture keeps the mixture of Chinese-European styles.

The last station is Jade Buddha Temple: The Jade Buddha Temple, also known as the Shanghai Yufo Temple, is one of the most important Buddhist temples in Shanghai, China. The Jade Buddha Temple was founded in 1882 by Abbot Hui Gen during the reign of Emperor Guang Xu (1875-1908) of the Qing Dynasty and burned down after having been occupied during the 1911 revolution. The temple takes its name from the original two white jade Buddha statues that abbot Hui Gen brought with him from Burma—a sitting statue about 1.95 m (almost 6 1/2 ft) in height and a smaller reclining Buddha.

A fabulous Shanghai day tour with Shanghai Private Tour

Our travel agency and planner Sam and Bonnie did a fantastic job for me and my wife on our recent trip to Shanghai. During the planning process, Sam and Bonnie were very easy to work with. They listened to what we wanted to do in Shanghai based on this Shanghai day tour and made excellent recommendations for our itinerary. They were very quick to respond to questions and concerns. The final guide/itinerary they emailed was concise, informative, well laid out and easy to follow. It was always in my possession and I consulted it constantly.

We NEVER had a problem in Shanghai as the guides, drivers, and transfer reps were always on time, efficient, and friendly. We would have had difficulty doing some things, but they were always there to guide us through any potential difficulties.
