Holidays in Shanghai

Embrace every side of China’s largest city on holidays in Shanghai. An exciting blend of east and west, modernism and tradition. Where 24-hour nightlife and fantastic shopping meet charming gardens and ancient architecture - reminiscent of “old china”.

The face of modern China, this booming metropolis dazzles visitors with its insatiable appetite for cutting-edge technology and design. You’ll be blown away by the towering skyscrapers and enticed by the unique oriental charm. View the Huangpu River and magnificent cityscape of The Bund from the Oriental Pearl TV Tower. Or watch the neon lights flicker as you dance the night away at one of the world’s highest hotels. Enjoy incredible shopping on the Nanjing Road, or explore the labyrinth of alleyways off Taikang Road, which are brimming with art galleries, coffee bars and antique shops.
