Your day-by-day itinerary

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.

Arrival in Shanghai

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.

Free time

Huangpu River Cruise

If you fancy having something organised during your time in Shanghai, we can arrange an evening river cruise for you to see the city’s bright lights from the water. You’ll take an hour-long cruise down the river with views of the illuminated skyline as its backdrop. At the end of the cruise you can stroll along the Bund or sip a cocktail before making your own way back to your hotel.

"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."
