For any visitor to China, perhaps the most attractive thing about Shanghai is just how fashionable it is. Museums, galleries, restaurants, etc. have emerged in the past few years. The heydays of the 1920s and 30s and the newfound wealth in the city are making Shanghai a place with a fabulous and optimistic style and attitude.
Your tour begins with Jade Buddha Temple. It was built during the Guangxu period of the Qing Dynasty (A.D. 1875-1909) with its priceless collection of jade statues from Burma. The construction of the temple is in the magnificent architectural style of the Song Dynasty. There are monks currently living in the Temple and the Temple houses the Shanghai Buddhist Institute.
Next stop is Fresh Water Pearl Gallery. We may see the process of pearl cultivation. One lucky participant will be presented with a single pearl from a mussel.
People Square is a spectacular space in the heart of the city. It is a vast green area including plants and trees, and surrounded by great buildings on all sides, where you may feed the lovely doves to pray for the world peace.
The visit to Shanghai Museum will take you to the climax in the morning. The museum design is in keeping with Feng Shui principles. It houses a great permanent collection and hosts various exhibitions with over 120,000 pieces including bronze ware, ceramics, paintings, calligraphy, sculpture, ancient Chinese coins, jade carving, ancient furniture, and western art, which shows you 5000 years history of China. We recommend you to rent an audio phone (USD 5) to make 1.5 Hours' visit more splendid.
This tour is the morning part of Best of Shanghai One Day City Tour.
