Shanghai Tour Extension 3 Days


Immerse yourself in dynamic, cosmopolitan Shanghai with this exciting tour extension, now including a visit to Shanghai Disneyland! For many years, Shanghai was China's window to the world, hosting large foreign settlements while the rest of the country was off-limits. Although it once held a reputation as a pit of vice and corruption, and was the site of fierce battles against invading Japan and between China's Nationalists and Communists, this ancient city is now China's showpiece to the world and a financial and industrial powerhouse to rival any other.

Tour Highlights:
  • Walk along the famous Bund, a mile-long stretch along the Huangpu River, lined with colonial architecture of European design, and gaze across the river at the glittering face of modern China
  • Visit the Shanghai Museum to see an exciting variety of ancient Chinese art, furniture and jade
  • Great opportunity to explore Shanghai Disneyland. Newly opened in June 2016, Shanghai Disneyland showcases a never-before-seen world of wonder where you can experience all manner of fun, thrills, and adventure
