Fun Shanghai Tours and Suzhou Day Trips

Sometimes referred to as China’s “New York City,” Shanghai’s unique culture combines Chinese and Western elements. Enjoy a stroll along The Bund, Shanghai’s busy waterfront promenade or take a Huangpu River Cruise. Be sure to see the city’s historic Jade Buddha Temple and its two exquisite Buddha statues.

Make the most of your visit to Shanghai and take a day trip to Suzhou. Of all the gardens south of the Yangtze River, Suzhou is the most remarkable amongst them. During the Ming and Qing dynasties (14th-20th century) the city had more than 200 villas and gardens, many of which have been restored and open to the public.
