Morning

You would visit Shanghai Old Town in the morning. It is located southeast of the Shanghai center. In the Old Town is known as the bright pearl of Shanghai is a perfect combination of gardens, temples, old architecture, civil culture, business, souvenirs, and food. The Yu Yuan Garden Bazaar reputed as 'the kingdom of small commodities' and 'the kingdom of snack' can be found here. The Back Streets walking could learn old Shanghai style allied houses, those allied houses built in 1920s and 1930s considered lower corner in old shanghai , they probably gone in few years later.


Next ,we will toward to The Bund Which a famous waterfront and regarded as the symbol of Shanghai for hundreds of years. It is on the west bank of Huangpu River from the Waibaidu Bridge to Nanpu Bridge and winds 1500 meters (0.93 mile) in length. The most famous and attractive sight which is at the west side of the Bund are the 26 various buildings of different architectural styles including Gothic, Baroque, Romanesque, Classicism and the Renaissance. The Bund has been called a 'museum of international architecture' and indeed it was and still is. But it was also much more.

After lunch ,we will toward to Former French Concession which was built on April 6 in 1849 after China’s loss in the Opium Wars in 1842. Shanghai, among other cities, was forced to open themselves as an international “ports of call.” In 1849, the government of Shanghai conceded a large of segment of land to the French consulate.Today, most of the streets are rather quiet, especially in the early morning or late evening and make great venues for strolling and walking. Cafes and shops have sprung up along many and taking a bit of time just to walk and observe is, in my mind, one of the best ways to see a city like Shanghai.we will driving along Former Joffre street feel the glory of Shanghai’s 1930 – see the Xintiandi bar street . Walking along Sinan Road sharing story about China modern history during 1911-1948 , interesting Song family 3 sisters – A coffee stop in a nice coffee shop relaxing sharing more stories about Chinese in world war #2 (we can skip this coffee stop if you don't have interesting ).


Our last sight for the day tour is Jade Buddha Temple which was initially built in 1882 and named for the two jade Buddhist statues.One of the most famous Buddha religious temples, is situated in Shanghai, which is a modern, bustling city in China. It attracts many visitors locally and overseas to Shanghai every year, especially during the Chinese New Year.There are a lot of religious events hosted by the temple. The temple can pursue silent from sound, and is described as a clean land in the busy city. The main and popular structures of the temple are the great Devajara Hall, Mahavira Hall, the Jade Buddha Tower; others are the Kwan-yin Hall, Amitabh Hall, Tang Hall, Dining- Room, also Recumbent Buddha Hall.
