This morning, visit Yuyuan Garden in the heart of Shanghai's old city. This 400-year traditional Chinese garden is about two hectares (five acres). Each pavilion, hall, stone, and stream in the garden expresses the quintessence of South China landscape design from the Ming and Qing Dynasties. With more than forty distinct locations, separated by dragon walls, winding corridors, and beautiful flowers, it forms a unique picture featuring "one step, one beauty; every step, every beauty." The surrounding market is packed with both traditional and modern shops, restaurants, and temples. The nearby Chenghuang Miao (Landlord Temple of Taoisam) serves as a captivating attraction and shopping corner for tourists.
After lunch, drive to visit the Shanghai World Financial Center. This skyscraper stands as the second tallest in mainland China, comprising 101 floors and towering at a height of 492 meters (approximately 1,614 feet). At the time of its construction, it claimed the title for the highest roof and usable floor heights, announced by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). The 100th floor offers an ideal vantage point to observe the pinnacle of the neighboring Jinmao Building, the entirety of Pudong, the Oriental Pearl Tower, and numerous iconic landmarks of Shanghai.
In the evening, enjoy the Acrobatics Show. After that, you'll be transferred back to the hotel by your guide.
