Shanghai is the epitome of paradoxical 21st century China; bold, ostentatious and relentless, yet underpinned with timeless customs, ancient beliefs and a rich history. This contrast is best appreciated on The Bund waterfront, with grand buildings from yesteryear and sweeping views across the river to Pudong’s gleaming towers. In the charming French Concession, traces of Shanghai’s European influences remain, whilst the teahouse, temple and bazaar of Yu Gardens offer a peaceful oasis.

In this special Veloso Tours style introduction to Shanghai, you will gain an in-depth perspective on the history and European heritage of Shanghai and how it arrived to be the powerhouse of China's economy today. You will also get a glimpse into some of the city's older neighbourhoods, enjoy a short panoramic cruise on the Huangpu River and visit the peaceful traditional Chinese gardens.
