The fastest train in the world, the highest skyscrapers in China and some of the most ambitious buildings in the world. Set off on an 8-hour private tour and discover Shanghai’s most modern neighborhoods.

Itinerary

Your guide will be waiting for you at 9am at your hotel lobby. From there, head to one of the city’s most modern train stations which accommodates the Shanghai maglev train, the worlds fastest commercial high-speed train. Climb on board the magnetic levitation train and travel to the Pudong International Airport in just 7 minutes. The train has a maximum speed of 431 km/h.

Once you get to Longyang Road station, discover Lujiazui, the new financial district of Shanghai. In this neighborhood, climb to the observation deck of one of the three tallest skyscrapers in the city: The World Financial Center, the Jin Mao Tower or the Oriental Pearl Tower.

Continue the tour by visiting the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center, home to numerous miniatures of Shanghai from different periods to demonstrate how the city has changed. It is a very visual and entertaining museum.

The museum is situated around Peoples Square, the most-visited square in Shanghai.

Walk from People’s Square to Nanjing Road, the liveliest high street in China, a perfect area to eat out at your own leisure.

Meet you guide after lunch and head to Xintiandi, one of the most modern areas in Shen. Surrounded by bars and restaurants is the first National Congress of the Communist Party of China.

Your guide will drop you off at your hotel or in any other area you want at 6pm. You can of course stay in Xintiandi if you prefer.

Changing the itinerary

Since this is a private tour, you can customize your itinerary. For example, if you’ve already ridden on the maglev train or if you prefer to visit other areas of Shanghai, your guide will accompany you wherever you want to go, including a replicas and electronic market.  

Tour without vehicle

If you want to live a more local experience, you can also book this tour without vehicle and get around the city by foot and on the subway (the tour includes a 24-hour subway ticket). This option is not available between the months of July and September, by reason of the high temperatures. We recommend booking a tour without vehicle to groups of more than 4 people.
