Shanghai Tourism & Travel Guide

Shanghai is a city full of history, glamour and mystique, all thrown in together. Home to world's second largest tower, it is a perfect mix of skyscrapers and traditional architectural gems scattered across the city. Jesuit cathedrals, Jewish synagogues and Buddhist temples, art-deco buildings and even unstructured lanes and stone gate housings have given Shanghai an exotic architectural heritage. Shanghai's mouth-watering restaurant scene is varied, exciting and up to the world standards, with Michelin starred restaurants and delicious street food. You can choose to eat a classic Chinese meal or sample some of the best of global cuisine on the streets and various restaurants of Shanghai. When it comes to shopping, Shanghai is justifiably known as the New York of east. There's Gucci, Prada and the likes, as well as pop-up boutiques, bustling markets, cool vintage shops and young designer outlets. There are also shops selling unique homeware, antiques and even exotic Tibetan jewellery.
Best time to visit
Summer, April to September, is peak season but it can get too crowded and frequent rains make the weather a little humid and sticky. Spring and late September to October are optimal moths to visit Shanghai.
