The Urban Planning Museum in Shanghai has a full-scale replica of the entire city fully equipped with lights, cars on the street, and even a few tiny pedestrians walking along The Bund! It certainly feels like you're on top of this bustling city!
88 Shi Ji Da Dao, LuJiaZui, Pudong Xinqu, Shanghai Shi, China, 200120
One of my highest recommendations for drinks is the Grand Hyatt Shanghai. The Grand Hyatt occupies the top 36 floors of the 88-story Jin Mao Tower in the Jetsons-looking Pudong district, so at sunset (or anytime) you have a stunning view (with no...

There are many acrobatic shows to choose from in Shanghai. One, Eros, boasts, "If you miss this, you miss Shanghai!" but it looked very high-tech, more like a Cirque du Soleil, and I wanted to see a traditional show. Well, this was it. It's most...

Jing'an Temple, Jing'an, Shanghai, China, 200085
Once in the temple, breathe deeply, close your eyes, and smell the incense. During your visit, you will be surrounded by monks, tour groups, and savvy travelers like yourself. The temple also has its own restaurant that, of course, specializes in...
Zhujiajiaozhen, Qingpu, Shanghai, China
On a trip to Shanghai, I took a few days to visit nearby water villages which are considered to be suburbs of Shanghai. These are the places where the canals dominate the village landscape. Often, getting from point A to point B requires transport...
56 Shaoxing Rd, Huangpu Qu, Shanghai Shi, China
The former residential suburb and French concession, Tian Zi Fang, is a maze of overflowing shops and cultures. The unexpected blend of European charm overlaid by Chinese chaos makes the area uniquely inviting. This is such a great area for people...
Zhongshan East 1st Rd, WaiTan, Huangpu Qu, Shanghai Shi, China, 200000
Along the western side of the Huangpu River, the Bund is a street of two dozen stately heritage buildings. Architecture buffs will find an array of late-19th- and early-20th-century styles here, from Gothic Revival to Art Deco. Among the most...
119 Madang Rd, XinTianDi, Huangpu Qu, Shanghai Shi, China, 200085
Housed in a restored shikumen (stone-frame house, typical of the architecture of the 1920s and '30s) in Xintiandi, the Site of the First Chinese National Congress is worth a visit. The museum documents the start of communism in China in a rather...
Xuhui, China, 200031
If you want to drink with the young and hip, look no further than Ginseng, located on Yongkang Road, an up-and-coming bar street. They have a full menu of specialty cocktails, all made with high-end liquors. If you're lucky you'll meet Misha, the...
Si Nan Lu, Huangpu Qu, Shanghai Shi, China
This is one of my favorite streets in the old part of Shanghai – SiNan Lu (Road). It is a hidden street, probably a mere 1KM north to south, with lot of historical stories around, with one particularly the former residence of Sun Yat-sen, which...
11 Nanjing W Rd, NanJing XiLu, Huangpu Qu, Shanghai Shi, China, 200085
Barbarossa's Moroccan cuisine, Arabian decor and dramatic warm lighting are like a scene out of Casablanca. However, positioned against Shanghai's skyline and a crowd of hip locals, dining here is a wholly modern Chinese experience. Stay for...
5 Dongping Rd, Xuhui Qu, Shanghai Shi, China
Rustic charm and good home-style cooking are what come to mind when you eat at Di Shui Dong. The Hunan eatery is always packed, a testament to how good their grub really is. If you're unfamiliar with Hunan cuisine, it's the spicy cousin of...
