Brightsun Travel has a selection of exciting and cheap holidays to Shanghai placing you at the centre of it all in China. Exploring Shanghai’s diverse neighbourhoods, you will find the best of the city’s nightlife in Xintiandi, as well as traditional shikumen complexes that have been transformed into museums, boutiques and clubs. Or, head to the Old Town and visit silk factories, markets and gardens, like the popular Yùyuán Gardens. In the Designer District you can shop at some of the city’s best boutiques and galleries, in the ‘French neighbourhood’ you can dine at European restaurants, and in Bund, you will want to spend hours roaming past Art Deco and neoclassical buildings. And all along Yong Kang Road, a former vegetable market, you'll find edgy cocktail bars and smart clubs.
On to Shanghai’s famous skyline, which includes the Oriental Pearl Tower, the Jinmao Tower, and the incredible Power Station of Art, Shanghai’s answer to the Tate Modern. Take in the skyline from the air by heading to the top of the Shanghai Tower, and experience the world’s highest observation deck. Top off your city tour in style with a trip to one of Asia’s best restaurants, Fe He Hui, and go on a journey through China’s diverse food landscape within exciting tasting menus. And for a day trip to remember from Shanghai you could go the short 90 mile journey to the ancient water village of Wuzhen, and wind around its waterways and canals by boat, and witness what life in China must have been like hundreds of years ago.
