Shanghai Postal Museum
I didn't expect much when I went to check out the Postal Museum but was pleasantly surprised. As a key trading port as well as a semi-colonized city, Shanghai has a unique past when it comes to mail.

The second half of the museum (documenting the modern postal system) is less engaging and more promotional, but it ends with a spectacular display of China's stamps. The courtyard houses a replica train car, horse and buggy as well as an early automobile all used for mail delivery. End your visit with a trip to the rooftop terrace for some impressive views of the Bund.

Open: Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, from 9:00 to 17:00
