Things to do on Shanghai city breaks
Get your bearings on Shanghai city breaks from the top of the pink and silver Oriental Pearl Tower, where you can take in the sheer size of the city. Hire a bike and cycle through the French Concession area, stopping in one of the local parks where locals practise tai chi exercises and play the traditional tile game of mah-jong. Take a trip to see local art in the small galleries of the Moganshan Lu district, then toast your Shanghai city break with a cocktail on the outdoor terrace of one of The Bund's glitzy bars.
