The best things to do in Shanghai

Traveling to Shanghai? Don't worry, there is no shortage of amazing stuff to do in Shanghai. The city is not only one of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant in China, but it's also one of the most important cultural centers in the world.

The city's architecture is, in fact, one of the most important Shanghai attractions.
The Pundong area is one of the best places to visit in Shanghai
and has become a true symbol of the city. The Oriental Pearl Tower, the third highest in the world, dominates the city skyline and is one of the most photographed
attractions in Shanghai.
The Bund, the old colonial quarter, is a major contrast to Pudong. It's surprising to see such a variety of architecture in Shanghai including Gothic, neo-classical, and Art Deco. The Customs building, the former Bank of Hong Kong and Shanghai, the Peace Hotel and the Bank of China are also some of the best things to see in Shanghai.

If you're looking for more traditional sights in Shanghai, the
Yuyuan Gardens and the Jade Buddha Temple truly recall the essence and traditions of the old Shanghai. They are quiet and beautiful places which reflect China's deep spiritual history.

Finally, a drink in the People's Square is one of the essential
things to do in Shanghai. Not only is people watching in People's Square one of the most popular Shanghai activities, but the square also houses attractions like the Shanghai Museum and the Grand Theatre. If you want to find more about
