    Discover Attractions and Things To Do in Shanghai

    The metropolitan Shanghai is defined by skyscrapers such as the Jin Mao Tower, Bank of China Tower and Oriental Pearl Tower, leading in financial developments and the latest of fashion and trends.  Lying in stunning yet subdued contrast, nonetheless, is the Old Shanghai that is made of temples, gardens that are classically Chinese or French-styled and historical landmarks that once had a part to play in its rich history.

    Today, these cultural monuments and places of interest offer some reprieve from the urban jungle and just like the many shopping places, high-end bars, entertainment and fine dining around the city, all of these are set to make any traveller’s itinerary as exciting as Shanghai should be.
