Arrival in Shanghai

Day 1

Arrival in Shanghai

When you arrive in Shanghai, you’ll be collected and transferred to your colonial-style hotel packed with historic atmosphere located just a short walk from the Bund riverside walk. As soon as you set foot outside the door, you’ll find yourself in the heart of Nanjing Road with bright lights, bars and restaurants.

Day 2

Free time

You’ll spend two nights in Shanghai and your time is completely your own. It’s a great city for walking, so amble between old world colonial buildings, quiet cobbled lanes and sleek skyscrapers, stopping to grab a cocktail in a swanky rooftop bar as you go.

"I was lucky enough to travel across China for two months and the more I explored, the more I loved; from its ancient towns to its futuristic cities. My top highlight has to be the mountainous scenery of Yunnan."
